    An absolute must see when in Rome. Be stunned by Bernini's amazing sculptures. Make sure you make a reservation a couple weeks before you visit.

    Ohhh Bernini!!!!!

  • Yasin C.

    Worth seeing.

  • Anna L.

    Impressive collection of art, but buying tickets 2 weeks in advance and not being allowed to carry any belongings inside is just ridiculous. Plus they most likely broke my camera which was in my bag

    The scultures are amazing.

    Book ahead. Skip the crowd. Tour the gallery the other way round.

    One of the most wondrous places on earth. Don't miss the picture gallery on the second floor.

    You don't need the reservation to get there. Just come to the ticket desk few minutes after the time slot begun (9/11/13h etc).

    A must see. Bernini really is amazing.

    Damla Güneş · July 22, 2015
  • Bob R.

    Two of the most featured sculptures (both by Bernini) depict rapes.

    Bob Rutledge · July 18, 2015
  • Stefania M.

    Amazing art collection! Buy the tickets in advance as it is always crowded and lots of time fully booked! Loved the park as well :)

    Stefania Mani · July 11, 2015
  • Salvatore D.

    Masterpieces by many artists can be seen here. My favourites are the marble sculptures by Bernini. Book and be punctual or you'll have to wait for the next turn to enter (that's up to two hours!)

    Salvatore De Carmine · June 26, 2015
  • Georgios K.

    Best museum in Rome

    Georgios Karamertzanis · June 9, 2015
  • Ann-Margaret M.

    I definitely recommend the multimedia audio tour they offer in multiple languages for €5 if you don't go there with a tour guide. Don't forget to look up! :) each room is a work of art on its own

    Ann-Margaret M Javier · June 5, 2015
  • Ann-Margaret M.

    Let's be honest. The art. was like a dream to see these works of art in person! It's June so it was hot and stuffy but it wasn't too crowded. Overall great experience.

    Ann-Margaret M Javier · June 5, 2015
  • Ioana Z.

    Amazing gallery but the booking is mandatory. Don't forget to see also it's garden on the back where you can see again from outside the Bernini statue Ratto di Proserpina.

    Ioana Zeres · April 11, 2015
  • Phil C.

    Just amazing. Don't even think about coming without buying tix in advance.

    Phil Calçado · April 5, 2015
  • Bea H.

    The audio guide is worth every penny (5€). It offers good stories and background information. Makes the visit so much better. I fell in love with Bernini.

  • Denys K.

    Bernini masterpieces are definitely among the things one must see be4 he/she dies.

    Denys Kovryzhenko · January 10, 2015
  • Cristina B.

    Since you are aloud to stay for only 2 hours, visit the attractions and then, watch the rest. Attractions: Caravaggio room, Bernini's sculptures, Venetian paintings and Paulina Bonaparte (Canova).

    Cristina Benitez · July 11, 2014
  • Cristina B.

    It's a must see attraction, tbest gallery in Rome. Make your reservation a couple of months before your trip in order to get tickets for the day you want, since the number of visitors aloud is limited

    Cristina Benitez · July 11, 2014
  • Talar T.

    If you want to visit a minimum number of museums during your trip, this must be on the list. Be sure to reserve tickets beforehand cz they get sold out.

    Amazing collection of art. So may Bernini sculptures, and all interesting and beautiful. Had an issue with tickets, but they made good on the error. The ceiling artwork is truly beautiful.

    Mark Dunk · July 1, 2014
  • Boon Y.

    Well-worth the fuss. A treasure trove of Bernini sculptures, Caravaggios, & incredible rooms. Book online 2-3 weeks ahead for tix. Tours are 2 hrs. Always sold out. Enjoy!!

  • Scott N.

    Best thing here is the sculptures, particularly the Rape of Prospina, which used to be at the Palazzo Ludovosi.

    Scott Norris · January 13, 2014
  • Jovana S.

    You must book tickets in advance and you have only two hours to see this beautiful gallery. But it is definitely worth seeing. :-)

    Jovana Stojanovic · December 28, 2013
  • Mikhail U.

    Please book the tickets online the day before at least, however it will not save you from staying in the long line to get your ticket (awful entrance organization)

    Mikhail Udalov · August 28, 2013
  • @sloane

    Reserve tickets in advance - a must! Save time after to walk through the park to the overlook to see all of Rome.

    @sloane · August 26, 2013
  • Sam S.

    Worth a visit, if you have some interest in Roman history. There are busts of the emporers, including Hadrian. Note: Bags & cameras have to be checked in before entering the museum.

    The audio guide is so worth the €5! No explanation of the works, otherwise. Amazing museum, not to be missed. Make sure to reserve your tickets online ahead of time.

  • Cross Pollinate Travel

    In our opinion, the most beautiful gallery in Rome.The Bernini statuary is an absolute must-see. Considered one of the best collections of classical art in the world -at one time coveted by Napoleon.

    Cross Pollinate Travel · November 6, 2012
  • Aydin G.

    The best museum that I visited in Rome. Don't forget to make a reservation for your visit at least a few days in advance.

    Take advantage of the controlled entry to get some time alone in the galleries.
