Centrale Montemartini - Review
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.

Centrale Montemartini, Rome Reviews
It is a must for anyone looking for something unusual and out of the ordinary in Rome. A discarded factory converted into a museum. Old and new merge together to create something extraordinary. Examples of the Roman Art of the finest find new vitality in this surreal location. Analogously this ancient beauty magically manages to revitalise the dismissed factory. It is a rare place in Rome, that definitely deserves more attention.
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.
Nice collection in unique setting, a partially restored 20th century power plant. No guards hovering over you. A bit tricky to get to.
This is a unique museum of early Roman sculpture set in the space of an old power plant. The contrast of the white sculptures with the black equipment behind serves the art well. It's kind of fun just to see some of the old equipment too.
Great contrast between the setting and the art, both wonderful feats of human design and engineering
