Great museum if you love ancient Roman history and Italian Baroque and some early Rennaisance art.

Capitoline Museum
It was well worth the time, except we are much more interested in painting. It’s 95% sculpture and architecture. But if you love that and you love history, this is a must see museum!

Capitoline Museum
The Capitoline Museum collection is incredible and there are masterpieces galore in gorgeous palatial surroundings. The view of the Forum from the Tabularium is a real plus and a superb location for excellent photos and a general overview of the buildings there. The Marcus Aurelius statue is really worth seeing and the history of the Capitoline Hill itself is fascinating. A must see museum in Rome.

It was very well organized and the guide was absolutelly charming. Took good care of us, told us everything and a little bit more about the items at the Museum. Showed us two rooms that were usually closed but opened in the day of our visit!
