Features and services
The Museum of Archeology for Rome is the first didactic and interactive on the archeology of the city and offers an original look at the archeology of the Capital and an unprecedented relationship between urban center and suburbs.
Numerous educational, cultural and entertainment activities for children and adults are organized by the CESTER Research Center and Spinoff CESTER-Impresa of the University of Rome "Tor vergata".
The museum is open every day, except Monday, from 10.30 am to 4.00 pm.
Entry is free.
The APR Museum is located in a part of the city of Rome, marginal, but with a high density of archaeological remains. The exposition is inside Villa Gentile, a farmhouse dating from the beginning of the 18th century, built on the ruins of the Torre Vergata (XIII century), which gave its name to the neighborhood, and in turn built on ruins of an older villa of Roman times.
Here you can discover the archaeological richness of the Roman suburbs and the historical yarn that links it to the center of the city through a museum path that runs along 4 themed rooms.
The APR Museum - Archeology For Rome launches educational activities with a series of workshops designed to bring children closer to the fascinating world of archeology. All the workshops will be preceded by a guided tour of the Museum during which small participants (and, if they wish, their parents) will discover the history of ancient Rome in a new, unusual light: not that of the Center, the Forum and of the Colosseum but of the Suburbs that already existed and played a vital role for the life of the city. Our little archaeologists will thus be able to know some ancient world production techniques and acquire new knowledge while having fun. For those who want, after the workshops, there is the possibility to stop in the pine forest surrounding the museum to enjoy an original archaeological picnic all together.
