A bit of history about the National Roman Museum
The National Roman Museum (Museo Nazionale Romano) is a group of museums in Rome formed by four branches scattered in several places of the city. It was founded in 1889 and was inaugurated a year later during the unification of Italy, with the objective of collecting antiquities from the fifth century BC until the third century AD.
The archaeological collections of the Kircherian Museum began the collection that formed this museum to which were added numerous discoveries made in Rome during the planning of the city once it became the new capital of the new Kingdom of Italy. In 1901 the Italian State granted the Ludovisi Collection to the Roman National Museum as well as the important national collection of ancient sculpture. The museum was established in the cloister built by Michelangelo in the sixteenth century and was part of the hot springs of Diocletian and still its main headquarter.
The adaptation of the buildings with a new purpose began for the Exposition of 1911 and finished in 1930. In 1990 a total transformation was carried out dividing the collections in four branches, the Baths of Diocletian, the Crypta Balbi, the Palazzo Massimo and the Palazzo Altemps.
