I have an interest in Napoleon. You really need that as a prerequisite for this museum...or else skip it. But if you have an interest, there are lots of interesting things here. The price is free - which is a cool feature, so even if...More

I didn't have any particular interest in the Napoleon collection but the museum is free and I had to walk past it repeatedly so I finally went in. Staff was friendly and the collection was somewhat interesting, but the building itself might be worth going...More

Museo Napoleonico is located near Ponte Umberto. Entry to the museum is free. You will be satisfied after visiting the museum if you are interested in studying the history on Napoleonic wars and his family development. Recommended.

An unassuming museum from the outside but a treasure trove of information for fans of history and the Napoleonic Wars. The house was owned by one of Napoleon's descendants who filled it with portraits and items belonging to the Bonaparte family. It was fascinating to...More

This museum is like entering the home of the whole Napoleon family, and you can imagine that this family had great influence in Rome after the defeat of Napoleon Bonaparte. The objects exhibited, mainly collected by Guiseppe Primoli, show the life of the family occupied...More
