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.

Capitoline Museum
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.

Capitoline Museum
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.
