Description

Welcome to the oldest museum in the world. The Roman Empire Museum (Musei Capitolini) dates all the way back to 1471, making it the first art museum in history.

Located at the summit of Capitoline Hill for almost 600 years, this gallery affords timeless views of the Eternal City, and is a fascinating window into thousands of years of Rome's history.

Inside the museum, you'll see some incredible statues, sculptures, bronze work, and other artworks that have been collected since 1471.

One of the museum's most famous pieces is the iconic Capitoline Wolf, a statue of a bronze she-wolf nursing Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers that led to the founding of Rome. It's one of the most well-known statues in the Roman world and a real cultural treat to see up close.

You'll also see elaborate interior decorations, including frescoes, stuccos, tapestries, and hand-carved ceilings. Musei Capitolini also houses precious old coins and priceless jewels, as well as sarcophagi, busts, and mosaics.

Explore the museum after an engaging video introduction which brings Ancient Rome to life, and get immersed in the Roman Empire experience.
