Roman National Museum - Palazzo Massimo Alle Terme
About the Palazzo Massimo Alle Terme
This building was once a prestigious boarding school during the late 19th century and became a hospital during World War II. After the war, the building was used as a school again, however it was neglected after the school moved to a newer building. The Italian Government acquired the building and gave it to the Roman National Museum, which opened Palazzo Massimo Alle Terme in 1998. This museum is home to ancient art from the Republican Age, and a vast array of artifacts, including Theodoric’s medallian and the four ducats of Pope Paul II with the Navicella of St Peter.
