Very interesting. Different from the catacombs in how the skeletons are arranged. Easy location to everything.

This was the weirdest ever. Most fascinating museum with well described information. Viewing the bone decorated crypts was very very weird and while I am glad to have done it - would not repeat it. It was a once in a lifetime viewing. Very very...More

I can't say that the "mortuary art" on display here tops my list of must-see art in Rome, but it is unique and interesting. Artistic monks used the remains of their departed brethren to create profound visual expressions of mortality. Not being Catholic, I wonder...More

My 7 year old was interested to see skeletons and skulls, but was quite sobered when encouring the real thing. It was very moving to walk through the crypt and see the artwork achieved with human bones. Much greater direct impact to a child than...More

The intricacy and details of the various crypts is stunning. Yes, you have to stomach the fact that everything is made of bones and that there are actual skeletons present in the crypts, but the arrangements and themes are amazing. The dedication to the "craft"...More

The message that the friars seek to convey is very powerfully done in this exhibit. While it may not be for everyone, it is something to see

This is a must on anyone’s itinerary, my wife said it was better than the catacombs, the thing I will remember most is the sign in the crypt saying “we are what you will become”.

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

You don’t need to book in advance - no queues, this is a reasonably less well known museum. I cannot recall if there’s audio guide.

Hmm - gut feeling is no, after all Rome is probably one of the most religious places on earth! If you’re staying at a hotel, I’d ask the concierge to check for you.
