  • it was a few years that I missed from this museum, already beautiful at the time, but definitely a little dusty, static and left to itself. it was a nice surprise to come back last Sunday and find it beautiful, cleaned, with the old pieces valued and new acquisitions on display. Commendable attempt to merge with the themes of the museum, without diluting them, other opportunities to make culture, such as music and books. very welcome to finally find a functioning air conditioning system that allows you to enjoy the visit without suffering even in the summer. The last time it was a real torture and only the passion for archaeology made me take the visit all the way, with the highest price of the temperatures. the bookstore is there, but thanks to the sky it is placed in a very discreet position does not disturb neither the view, nor visitors. there is also a small, fortunately non-intrusive food. No pharaoh works, only small adjustments in the management of spaces and cultural offer that show that you can achieve great results even by working in economics,

  • It is contained here. The coffin of the married couple does not get tired no matter how it sees. There was no café, but there was a vending machine for coffee. There were many exhibits and it took about three hours to watch them slowly. Take the tram from near the Vatican and stop near the museum.
