  The Palatine Museum
by martin_nl
 
 

The Museo Palatino occupies a former convent built on top of Domitians Palace. Its present display is a section dedicated to Rome in the archaic period. The museum also has displays of art in the imperial palaces from Augustus to late imperial times.

The museum is quite interesting and a visit is included in the price of entry to the Palatine. However not many valuable items are placed in the museum, since most of the pieces found on the Palatine have been moved to the Santa Maria degli Angeli alle Terme in 1882. It was a governments order, that up until today still functions.

Directions: Right in between the Domus Flavia and Domus Augustiana.
