The Museum of Rome is housed in the 18th century Palazzo Braschi situated at the heart of Renaissance and Baroque Rome, between Piazza Navona and Piazza Campo dei Fiori.

The palace, designed by the architect Cosimo Morelli (1732-1812) has recently undergone complex restructural and restoration work that have returned everything to its original splendour; the majestic  building itself, the scenographic courtyard, the elegant stuccos and also the paintings on display in its rooms.
A characteristic architectonical feature of the palace is its monumental staircase, designed by the architect Giuseppe Valadier (1762-1839). Many rooms still have the tempera adornments carried out between the end of the 18th and start of the 19th centuries.

Thanks to the size and value of its collections, the Museum of Rome is the most important institute in Rome for finding out about the city’s social history and artistic endeavours from the Middle Ages through to the beginning of the 20the century.  It is home to more than one hundred thousand works that include paintings, drawings, sculptures, engravings, photographs, furniture, clothing, ceramics, carriages and sedan chairs, as well as architectural elements and frescos rescued from demolition sites. Many of these items are displayed on a rotation basis.
