The Museo di Roma is a museum in Rome, Italy, part of the network of Roman civic museums. The museum was founded in the Fascist era with the aim of documenting the local history and traditions of the "old Rome" that was rapidly disappearing, but following many donations and acquisitions of works of art is now principally an art museum. The collections initially included 120 water-colours by the nineteenth-century painter Ettore Roesler Franz of Roma sparita, "vanished Rome", later moved to the Museo di Roma in Trastevere.Use our Rome trip builder site to visit Palazzo Braschi on your trip to Rome, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

Wow. This place is so beautiful. The ornate carved ceilings and like wow. The Fresco's are incredible. So are all of the wildly famous paintings and sculptures. Everything here is so old. It's very pretty and there isn't a ton of people in every room because it is so big it's awesome sauce Just go you can thank me later.
It's a nice museum, though I would've found it more interesting if it were structured in a different way, I believe. The museum is made up of two routes, one where you learn about Romes history and the other where you learn about all kinds of people, that lived in Rome and their stories. I personally would've preferred the people and their stories to be sprinkled all throughout the other historical paintings, stories and artefacts, that you can see on the first route.
