A Guide to the Museo di Roma, Palazzo Braschi

Rome is packed full of museums and offers history and art in abundance. In this post we'll be taking a look at everything you need to know about Museo di Roma (the Museum of Rome).

Since 1952, after substantial restoration work, Palazzo Braschi has been the seat of the Museum of Rome, but only in 1990 did the state-owned property pass to the City Council.

Palazzo Braschi has a trapezoid shape. The longest side extends from Piazza Pasquino to Piazza Navona, while the shortest overlooks Piazza San Pantaleo, by a church of the same name, with a neoclassical façade, built by Giuseppe Valadier in 1806. Two monumental entrances, surmounted by a balcony, open onto Piazza San Pantaleo and Via San Pantaleo: two arched doors open onto the other two sides of the building, on Via della Cuccagna and Piazza Navona.

From the top floor windows you can admire great views over Piazza Navona.
