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!

Place it self was worth to be visited. I just do not understand the attitude of the personnel: they were unpolite and rude. Turists are not wanted to visit here, personnel would have so nice time if turists would not visit there.

We had a great time at the museum. The museum is extremely well set out. Exhibits are clearly marked and the guides are knowledgeable about the contents of each room. The rooms are spacious and there is plenty of room to move about even when there are lots of visitors. Each room has great views of Rome, that are amazing. There is a lovely open terrace, cafe and restaurant where you can spend time taking in the amazing views of Rome.
We spent three hours in the museum before visiting the forum via the slip road by the museum, which was a great way to finish a day of sightseeing in Rome. We would thoroughly recommend this museum.

At first we only booked tickets for the colosseum and Vatican but because our daughter wanted to see the statue of Romulus and Remus we also went to this museum. It was the most beautiful thing we saw today. I really recommand it. Amazing!!!
