Capitoline Museums

A taste of history at the world’s oldest museums

Overlooking the famous Michelangelo’s Campidoglio square, these museums are considered the oldest in the world. Founded in 1471, today they host in two buildings and a vast collection of artwork and archaeological relics. The two buildings are interconnected by an underground tunnel containing the Galleria Lapidaria, and leading to the Tabularium, the official records office of ancient Rome, whose immense arches open out onto the Roman Forum. An original equestrian statue of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, of which a imposing replica dominates the square outside, is preserved inside.
