It’s worth going to see the dioramas, but the temporary exhibitions are by far the biggest part of the museum. I wasn't really interested in the ones they had when I was there and they were entirely in Italian.

We were staying in Trastevere and having coffee and looked across the street and saw this little museum. They were having a Vivian Maier photography exhibit, and we'd seen a documentary about her and her work on Netflix so we were intrigued. There were not...More

Went there in May 2017 to see the Vivian Maier exhibition. The cashier told me I had to get the full price ticket (6.00€) and the extra charge for temporary exhibitions (3.5€) to get inside. A maintenance problem in one of the Maier exhibition rooms...More

Stumbled across this museum by accident and spent an enjoyable hour viewing evocative photos of tough lives in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. Upstairs some rare watercolours of life on the Tiber 150 years ago. €6 each; well worth it.

At first glance it did not look very exciting but the exhibition of black and white photos from the 50s and 70s were stunning and also the displays on life in the trastevere were fascinating. Definitely worth a couple of hours and the entrance fee.
