The inside story
Rome’s Palazzo Massimo is part of the Roman National Museum and, very close to the central Stazione Termini train station, is a renaissance building that holds one of the world’s most important collections of classical art. The building dates back to 1887 and it was planned by the architect Camillo Pistrucci for the Jesuit priest Massimiliano Massimo. It then became property of the Massimo princes.
In 1998 it was inaugurated as a state museum and is known for its collection of sculptures, paintings and mosaics as well as a rich collection of coins from ancient Rome.
