The entrance to the museum of the Baths of Diocletian (Museo Nazionale Romano delle Terme di Diocleziano) is reached by the garden on the right side of the building.
The museum has 3 departments:

1° The Protohistory of the Latin people during the Bronze and Iron ages (12 - 6th c. BC) showing findings of several tombs of these periods. Spectacular are the arms of a Roman officer found in the "Tomb of the warrior of Lanuvium" as well as vessels and other objects from the necropolis of Fidene and Castiglione.

2° The Epigraphy or the study of inscriptions showing the birth and diffusion of the Latin language.

3° The Michaelangelo Cloister with sculptures and sarcophagi.

This museum, by its specific collections, is especially interesting for historians. Tourists will be more pleased to visit the museum of the Palazzo Massimo, just on the other side of the Piazza Cinquecento.
