Overview
More
The creation of the Capitoline Museums has been traced back to 1471, when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of bronze statues of great symbolic value to the People of Rome. The collections are closely linked to the city of Rome, and most of the exhibits come from the city itself.

We went on a Percy Jackson tour (booked through Rome Tours with Kids) and had a fabulous time exploring this museum. The kids, ages 15,11, and 9 all enjoyed the artwork and loved the mythological pieces. There is so much to see in the museum-...More
