If you are weary from the tiring museum hopping, do drop in to this unique place. This is not the average history lesson that you can expect from an architectural museum. The Centrale Montemartini is located right on the site where the industrial power plant in Ostiense used to be.
The striking part is, the museum is located inside the old power plant building. Here, one can glimpse numerous ancient statues and artifacts but in an all-too-unfamiliar setting. The industrial backdrop and the ancient statues surely make up a truly surreal experience for tourists.
Most of the contents of the museum are the newest acquisitions from the most famous museum in Rome, the Capitole Museum. Consider this to be an offbeat destination for your trip to Rome.

One of the most interesting museums we’ve visited in Rome. A collection of antique sculpture inside a closed power station. Beautiful art works, contrasting interiors. Most of all we liked the antique mosaics and train cars of the Vatican railway.
It’s the Capitoline Museum but with a 100th of the tourists and a fantastic industrial setting! One of the best adaptive reuse projects I’ve seen anywhere. Enjoy the solitude and prepare to have your socks knocked off.
One of my favourite museums:the perfect juxtaposition of ancient Roman statuary with the abandoned machinery of a disused 20th century hydroelectric plant. Well worth a couple of hours.
Interesting museum, especially the Republican Rome statuary and sarcophagi. It was also fun to see the train cars built for Pope Pius in 1858.
I thoroughly enjoyed this unique and engaging exhibition. The ground floor is good but the upper floor will totally blow you away. The juxtaposition of white marble sculpture and 1950’s boiler engineering totally hit the mark for me.
