Its first collection was formed from the archeological collections of the Museo Kircheriano and the numerous new discoveries in Rome during the city-planning after it became the new capital of the new Kingdom of Italy. This was initially meant to be displayed in a 'Museo Tiberino' (never realised), but in 1901 the State granted the institution the Villa Ludovisi and the important national collection of ancient sculptures.




Description :

The National Museum of Rome is a set of museums in Rome, Italy, split between various branches across the city. It was founded in 1889 and inaugurated in 1890, during the Risorgimento, with the aim of collecting antiquities from between the 5th century BC to the 3rd century AD. we headed to the National Museum of Rome, housing an amazing collection of mosaics, inlaid stonework, and other treasures. You might think we'd be museumed out after that, but not when every corner you turn takes your breath away, no.It's an amazing church, full of wonderful artwork, but we couldn't see most of it because there was a wedding going on at the time! Sometimes we forget that many of these wonderful places we visited are operating churches.
