Centrale Montemartini Museum

Centrale Montemartini, the sister space to Rome’s historic Capitoline Museums, is located in the Ostiense neighborhood. The museum is housed in the city’s former thermoelectric center—a turn-of-the-century power plant still outfitted with original turbine engines, boilers, and compressed air canisters—creating an unusual backdrop to an incredible collection of antiquities. Ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, friezes, and mosaics. The less-visited museum is one of the best places for full immersion in Roman history and antiquities.

Away from the Maddening Crowds {Centrale Montemartini + Rome}

Tired of the crowds? Go to the Centrale Montemartini in Ostiense. No lines. In fact, no other people. At all. Usually I am the only one there. Wander the ancient Roman sculptures and extraordinary mosaic floor set in the former power plant; boilers, engines, and all.
