The Museo di Roma, housed in the Palazzo Braschi, is devoted to the local history, culture and art of Rome from the Middle Ages until the twentieth century.


The Museo di Roma features a large and varied collection made up of thousands of works of art, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, clothes, ceramics, photographs, and some architectural elements, all depicting local history and Italian traditions. The museum houses a limited number of each element.

On the ground floor there is a collection of the art work from Pope Pius VI’s period, including portraits of the members of the Papal Household. The second floor features paintings, sculptures and frescoes from several aristocratic families of Rome.

Less worthwhile than other museums

Although the Museo di Roma is located in the city centre, near Piazza Navona, surrounded by Renaissance and Baroque buildings, we believe that there are other museums in Rome which are more entertaining and interesting. The price is also quite high.
