National Roman Museum–Palazzo Massimo alle Terme Tours

The National Roman Museum has four locations throughout Rome, with a notable part of the museum set in the 19th-century Palazzo Massimo alle Terme near Termini train station. It contains one of the world's most important collections of Classical art. The museum has four levels with sculptures, frescoes, mosaics, coins, jewels and many other items that show the evolution of Roman art from the Late Republican age through Late Antiquity. The art depicts ancient Roman history, myths and the culture of everyday life over the course of several hundred years. 

Some of the exhibitions in the National Roman Museum include Greek works that were discovered in Rome such as the Boxer at Rest, the Hellenistic Prince, portraits from the Republican and Imperial Ages, and the statue of Augustus Pontifex Maximus. Other pieces in the museum depict Roman battle scenes and other parts of Roman life. Frescoes and mosaics show what Roman dwellings might have looked like. Another section displays grave ornaments and the Grottarossa Mummy.
