Longer Hours for Rome’s Municipal Museums

Constantine Bust at Capitoline MuseumsIn an initiative to allow locals and the throngs of summer tourists more time to enjoy Rome’s cultural riches, the City of Rome is keeping its municipal museums open from 8pm until 1am every Saturday through September 3. Which museums are municipal museums, you ask? They include the Capitoline Museums (pictured), the Ara Pacis Museum, Trajan’s Markets, both outposts of the MACRO contemporary art museum, and several other museums, galleries, and villas. Regular admission prices still apply to these late-night visits.

Here is a list of Rome’s municipal museums. For photos of these museums’ collections and recent exhibits, visit the Musei in Comune Flickr page.
