Rome is a city with ample array of museums. Be it the Capitoline Museum, Contemporary Art museum or National museum, this city has a variety of museums dedicated to different horizons.
And one of the quirkiest museums in the city is the Museo Criminologico!
All of us have heard stories and seen movies about the Italian mafia and the gang wars in Italy. This museum located in via del Gonfalone is one place that reminds people about the grim underbelly of this majestic city and indeed the entire country.
If you have some time to spare and a penchant for all things macabre, this museum definitely should not be missed. On display, there are numerous legitimate crime scene memorabilia such as weapons and photos of crime scene investigations.
Also there are wax statues of famous criminals and elaborate set ups of ancient and modern torture machines. One can rest assured that some of the machines will send a chill down your spine.

Still closed for work no information as to when it's reopening :( was disappointed really wanted to visit.
We bumped into this museum while wandering the city. It was an amazing surprise for us. We ended up seeing things we would normally never see. If you like police novels and criminal stories, that is the place to be!!
Brilliant if you have early teen boys who are fascinated by gore, and less fascinated by the beauty and art that their parents have been forcing them to see on their trip to Rome.
A nice little dusty museum detailing the blood chilling history of crimes in Rome. Teenage kids will be most entertained.
Closed due to maintenance. No information when it will be open again.
