After not being able to visit galleria Borghese we ended up visiting this museum. Very small compared to galleria Borghese but stacked with sculptures. We were pleasantly surprised at the amount of sculptures on display. Definitely worth a visit.

We stumbled upon this museum while walking in the Borghese Gardens after visiting the Borghese Gallery and were so pleased! It is a great small museum to see some great sculptures. It was quite interesting to see the works of Pietro Canonica and to see just how far his works made it around the world. The best part is that this museum was completely free!

the works of Pietro Canonica, an early 20th century Italian sculpture. The museum was his home and workshop. Many of his subjects were historical figures of the early 1900 period. He has done extensive work for the Russian royal family,the Turkish government and also there are religious subjects. Most of the sculptures are his models of his completed works. Nice stop in the Borghese Gardens,no admission charge

They display Pietro Canonica's work along with contemporary art pieces which is really interesting. I specially enjoyed. It's worthy to see and it's free!

We just came across this when wandering around Villa Borghese Park. Its free and you can take a look where Canonica (he of the photography fame) lived etc. In the basement are the original Roman marble statues from around the park which are kept safe from the elements. Copies are dotted around the park to replace them and there are many fine examples to see. Enjoyable hour or less if you like.
