For those who have already seen the major ancient sites, this is a nice addition. The price is relatively high, but then, they are preserving the Altar of Peace with conditioned air. This will take no more than an hour (the video is worthwhile). Even...More

The Ara Pacis is one of the most interesting of Roman monuments. An altar to Augustan peace consecrated in 13 BC, it consists of a two story high box containing a flight of steps leading up to the central altar. Around the outside at ground...More

As a history teacher, the Ara Pacis is something I had wanted to see for a long time. So of course I wanted to go in. However if you are a typical sightseeing tourist in Rome, it doesn’t have the “must see factor” that so...More

I booked a ticket on-line for the evening VR presentation "The Ara as it Was" (L'Ara Com'Era) at the Museum. The audio/visual equipment is comfortable to wear and easy to use. The presentation is wonderful, colourful, with accurate perspective and life-like movement, and informative narration....More

This small museum shelters the reconstructed Ara Pacis Augustae (Altar of the Augustan Peace). Despite the steep admission fee, I recommend a visit for two reasons. First, the reliefs decorating the altar enclosure are among the greatest achievements of Roman sculpture, gorgeously carved and (in...More

This is an important monument, the epitome of the Agustan age, remarkably reconstructed and partally restored to recreate a visual feast of roman sculpture. The altar is displayed in a beatiful modern building. Downstairs when we were there was a fine photographic exhibition on the...More

The museum is costly for what you get to see. 13E or 11E for discounted tickets (under 18 or Roma Pass holders). There is a little background information, and short video and the main things is to see the Altar dedicated to the Roman goddess...More

The VR experience was a great way to feel like standing next to Augustus when inaugurating the temple. Great detailed explanation of the temple and a lively representation of a piece of history.

My favorite museum visit in Rome. This simple museum has an excellent video presentation, explaining how and why Augustus built this temple, and showing what it would have looked like with the marble carvings colorfully painted. The temple itself was discovered in the 1800's, and...More
