Capitoline Museum (Musei Capitolini)
Consisting of four grand and historic palazzos, this complex of museums was designed by Michelangelo. Its large collection is devoted largely to the history of Rome itself, and it features a great many items that date to antiquity.
It’s also considered the world’s original museum. Pope Clementine XII opened it up the Roman public in 1734.

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.
