The National Roman Museum houses collections themed on the history and culture of the city in ancient times.
The museum was established in 1889 (and opened the following year) to collect the antiquities of the city dated between the fifth century BC, and the third century AD. The Roman archaeological collections of the Kircher Museum and the numerous finds that were discovered in the city were added to it after the urban transformations of Rome. determined by its new role as capital of the Kingdom of Italy, were initially intended to be exhibited in a "Tiberine Museum", which was, however, never created. In 1901 the Villa Ludovisi was bought by the State and the important collection of ancient sculptures was transferred to the museum.hide
