The Museo di Roma has a huge collection of more than one hundred thousand paintings, drawings, etchings, photographs, sculptures, furniture and chasms, ceramics and even entire carriages. Of course, these cannot all be exhibited at the same time, so even the permanent exhibition is subject to rotation.

A special feature is the collection of 19th century photographs showing typical Roman street scenes from that period.

The walls of some of the rooms are decorated with tempera paintings from the end of the 18th and the early 19th century.

Another highlight is the monumental staircase, in the design of which the famous architect Valadier was involved.
