Museo Nazionale Romano, Palazzo Altemps


National Roman Museum: A heritage unmatched anywhere in the world.

The National Roman Museum is home to and displays an ancient heritage that narrates the history of the city. This centre of culture is housed in several venues: Palazzo Altemps, with a large collection of ancient marbles and sculptures; Palazzo Massimo, with splendid artistic masterpieces of Ancient Roman origin including statues, frescoes, low-reliefs, mosaics, marbles and sarcophagi; the Baths of Diocletian, an incomparable monumental complex in terms of its size and conservation status, and Crypta Balbi, one of the most important urban archaeological museums in Rome. "Il Medagliere" in the Baths of Diocletian deserves attention for its interesting collection of coins, medals, gems and goldsmith art. The National Roman Museum is well worth visiting and a treasure trove of culture, knowledge and the capital's ancient history.
