This is an incredible complex of palaces telling a part of the story of the history of Rome. For a history lover, this is a must-see in Rome. I spent the entire day here with my girlfriend and even she enjoyed it… although a whole day of absorbing art and history left us thoroughly drained! Through a huge, and stunning collection of art and artifacts, the Capitoline museum take you on a journey of how Rome grew and developed. We used the video guide which was occasionally fascinating- using augmented reality to read out a translation of ancient tombstones, or explaining important figures on giant paintings and sculptures… however we mostly used this as an audio guide which I strongly recommend - without the audio guide or video guide, you will miss a lot. Implementation of the augmented reality on the video guide is patchy, and often misses out a lot… for instance, there is only one room that discusses Hannibal, but not much is told of the Punic wars, or the impact it had on Rome. I heartily recommend you make time for this amazing museum. And I strongly recommend you get an audio or video guide (or a tour guide) if you go. The museum is in multiple palaces which are beautiful but hard to navigate. And you MUST book in advance!
