Saw this in the DK Rome Top 10 guidebook, in the "off the beaten track section". Thought we'd give it a try. Wish we hadn't bothered. It's just a wall with a small number of artefacts of questionable origin - x-files it isn't. Disappointing.

This small museum is worth a stop by as you travel from Castle San Angelo to Trevi fountain area. It has an interesting display of purgatory items. No need to allow more than 20 minutes.
