Currently open but with some significant renovation works going on inside, the entrance cost is reduced to €6 each, which for me was money well spent. The museum can be seen from the Roman forum and the road leading up to the colosseum, however the entrance is the other side. So many people just bypass here and consequently the museum is fairly quiet.
The main building is magnificent, it used to be the Great Hall, and you can see why it has deservedly earned this name. The structure is amazing and within each of the side rooms, they have placed a display of some of the artefacts which have been discovered. These have been arranged according to the different ages e.g. The forum of Caesar, the forum of Augustus etc.
After viewing all the exhibits inside, there are some fantastic areas outside to view. Make sure you climb to the top of the viewing areas, to get a good view back down to the ruins and also across Rome.
Definitely recommended for people interested in the different time periods in Roman history and for those interested in recently discovered artefacts.
