Rome Museums

» Museums in Rome - from Musei Online, a guide to museums in and around Rome, .
» Museums of Rome - a list of Museums with brief descriptions.
» Thais - Index of Museums - a list of museums with brief descriptions and opening hours.
» Thais - Scupltures by Museum - a list of museums with pictures and descriptions of the most important sculptures in each.
» Galleria Borghese - the original sculptures and paintings in the Borghese Gallery date back to Cardinal Scipione's collection, the son of Ortensia Borghese - Paolo V's sister - and of Francesco Caffarelli.
» Journeys to Italy, a licenced tour operator of Rome, offers a wonderful experience for art lovers. Join a small, intimate group of 10 people (max), where your guide will point out the highlights of the Borghese collection with paintings from Titian, Raphael, Domenichino and Botticelli. From the upper level you will go to the lower floor where the impressive Bernini artworks are preserved like Apollo and Daphne and Rape of Proserpina, you will see also the beautiful paintings by Caravaggio and the Canova’s Pauline Bonaparte. Also not to be missed is the opportunity to enter the Vatican Museums before they open their doors to the general public. You can take an early morning Vatican & Sistine chapel VIP tour with a licensed guide and Skip the Line tickets. You will be in the Sistine Chapel with a limited number of people, you will be able to admire Michelangelo’s work without the daily crowd; it will be a memorable experience that will last forever.
» Rome Guide - Galleria Borghese - Rome Guide offers a virtual tour of this Baroque show of force: the Villa Borghese. Note that tickets to the gallery must be booked in advance.
» Galleria Spada - one of Rome's prettiest palaces, it was acquired by Cardinal Spada in 1632. It's most famous feature is Borromini's ingenious trompe l'oeil colonnade in the garden, which is 9m long, but appears to be much longer!
» Galleria Corsini - the impressive collection of the Corsini family was brought together in the XVIII century.
» Palazzo Barberini (Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica) - Maderno, Bernini and Borromini all contributed to the design of this palace, built for one of the Barberini popes between 1627 and 1633.
» Macro Museum of Contemporary Art - a refreshingly modern attraction in this 3000 year old city.
Keats-Shelley Memorial House - situated on the Spanish steps, this house is part of Roman folklore. For generations Piazza di Spagna has been visited by architects, painters, musicians and poets. Tobias Smollet, George Eliot, Goethe, Coleridge, Shelley, Byron, the Brownings, Henry James, Edith Wharton, Oscar Wilde and James Joyce were just a few of the many who were attracted and inspired by the celebrated 'centro storico di Roma'.
» Chiostro del Bramante - situated in one of Rome's most enigmatic little corners, the Chiostro del Bramante hosts high quality exhibitions. Often open at night too.
» Palazzo delle Esposizioni - Rome's most important cultural centre: it hosts exhibitions, film festivals and conferences.
» Palazzo Ruspoli - the former palace of the Ruspoli family is now used for world touring exhibitions.
» Museo del Corso - located on 320 Via del Corso. (Italian)
