Fodor's Review

The fourth component of the magnificent collections of the Museo Nazionale Romano (and visitable on the same ticket), this museum is unusual in how many periods of Roman history it represents. The crypt is part of the Balbus Theater complex (13 BC) and other parts of the complex are from the medieval period, up through the 20th century. The written explanations accompanying the well-lighted exhibits are excellent, and this museum is a popular field trip for teachers and school groups.
