The Roman Empire Museum:
skip the line entrance and Multimedia Video

Welcome to the world first museum! The Empire Roman Museum has a fascinating collection of art and artefacts, all telling the fascinating history of Rome. See the famous she-wolf sculpture featuring Rome's founders Romulus and Remus, and see a treasure chest of items telling the story of Rome, the ancient Caput Mundi.

Before your visit you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in ancient Roman times with this intense 25 minute multimedia video showing the before and after effect of all the best sites of Rome including the Colosseum and Underground, Pantheon, Circus Maximum and the Vatican area. The video is ideal to watch before taking your tours as one can appreciate the splendor of how the ruins were in Ancient Roman Times.

In 1734 Pope Clementine XII decided to make a significant collection of artwork and ancient sculptures permanently accessible to the people of Rome. With this magnanimous act, he created the world's first museum - it's on top of one of the Seven Hills of Rome, overlooking the Ancient Roman Forum. It's a melting pot of history. 

Enjoy the visit at your own pace!
