Description

Welcome to the world’s first museum! The Capitoline Museums (plural because it's in four buildings atop one of Rome's famous Seven Hills) has a fascinating collection of art and artifacts all telling the fascinating history of Rome.

In 1734 Pope Clementine XII decided to make a significant collection of artwork and ancient sculptures permanently accessible to the people of Rome. With this magnanimous act, he created the world's first museum - it's on top of one of the Seven Hills of Rome, overlooking the Ancient Roman Forum. It's a melting pot of history.

See the famous she-wolf sculpture featuring Rome's founders Romulus and Remus, and see a treasure chest of items telling the story of Rome, the ancient Caput Mundi.

Insider tip

The Piazza atop Capitoline Hill, Piazza del Campidoglio was designed by none other than Michelangelo himself. He even designed the staircase leading to the square!
