The National Museum of Castel Sant'Angelo can be considered a monument, an archaeological site, and a museum all at the same time. Inside are numerous preserved and heterogeneous collections throughout different historical moments. Visiting the museum, you will discover the fascinating history of the building that houses it.

Built around 123 A.D. as a tomb for Emperor Hadrian and his family, Castel Sant'Angelo accompanied, for almost two thousand years, the fate and history of the capital. From a burial tomb to a fortified outpost, from a dark prison to a splendid Renaissance residence, from a Risorgimento prison to a museum, Castel Sant'Angelo embodies the story of the Eternal City, where past and present seem inextricably linked.

Founded as a museum of war memorabilia and military, such as weapons and uniforms, in recent decades the exhibition space of Castel Sant'Angelo has been enhanced with an impressive collection of pottery (with examples dating from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century) and an interesting group of medieval and modern sculptures.

Information about visiting:

  • With the entrance ticket, it is possible to rent audio guides in several languages including: Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, English, German, Chinese and Russian.
  • The museum is open year-round except on December 25, January 1, and May 1.
  • Opening hours are from 9:00 am to 7:30 pm.
  • The last admission is always one hour before the site closes, so at 6:30 pm.
  • Due to the high number of entrances, both in high and low seasons, it is always advisable to make a reservation as to avoid queues at the ticket office.

Accessibility

  • Not all routes are available for people with reduced mobility.
