Museo di Scultura Antica Giovanni Barracco

Even now, I have not managed to share all the interesting photos from my visit to Italy this summer. One place that I serendipitously happened across and entered was the Giovanni Barracco Museum of Ancient Sculpture. Once you see what is inside, it is hard to believe that it is not a major attraction, with people lined up around the block outside trying to get in. Instead, it was nearly empty with no crowds and only a small number of visitors.

I will let the ancient statues, inscriptions, and other items on display speak for themselves. I am sure that you will enjoy them, and that having seen them, you will make add this destination to your list of things to see if you are ever in Rome (again).
