Admire Trilussa's belongings and explore what Rome used to be like in the 19th century. A map shows what the Jewish ghetto was like as well as villas that have been demolished.

It’s a small museum. The permanent exhibition upstairs is nice, showing the Roman life some centuries ago, with explanations in English and Italian. The photo exhibition wasn’t that great called family. I wondered how they chose such photos. Upstairs there was a better exhibition with...More

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.

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.
