On our last day in Rome we were looking for a place that opened sort of early that we could visit before heading home. National Museum of Oriental Art fit the bill. It's not in a large space, but it has a lot of to look at and learn about, from a broad span of time and many different parts of Asia.

Some of the many items in this museum included metal plates with cool designs, old clay pottery from Iran and Syria, lovely glazed and colorful pottery, fancy metal helmets, Indian fabrics/quilts, metal tea sets, paintings of horses, piece of buildings/sculptures, lovely ceramic vessels, bronze figures, and beautiful bowls with dragons on them.

The collection has been moved to Museum of Civilizations in late 2017 and is definitely worth a visit.

I really enjoyed this museum, it had a nice collection of Chinese and Iranian art and some beautiful ceilings. It was also a good chance to escape the crowds at some of the busier sights for an hour or more.

Small and quiet museum with an interesting collection of oriental art, mostly Hindu, Arabic and Chinese. I liked the most very nice sculptures of Budda. Unfortunately no Japanese art there.

The exhibits are not the most spectacular that you can find, but still very interesting. Unfortunately, most of the descriptions and information is in Italian only, so keep that in mind. What I really loved about this museum is the presentation- it gives just about enough information and overview of each region/culture, simple yet elegant glass cabinets, all set in a beautiful building (pay attention to the ceilings!). They're currently holding a small modern exhibition too. Few rooms were closed though. If you get sick of too many similar ancient Roman heads and torsos, this place is a great alternative.

There's so much talk of "globilization" now as if the East,Near and Far, had just been discovered by Italians. A visit to this rather small and,unfortunately obscure, museum in the center of Rome should clear up this impression immediately! Italians have always been explorers,for curiosity,for trade or whatever,and returning home brought with them objects for study or to impress stay-at-home friends with their superior sophistication. These are now on display here and well worth the effort of getting out and paying a pittance to appreciate the artifacts of ancient civilizations.

The highlight of this small museum is its wonderful collection of Gandharan sculptures culled from some early Italian excavations in central Asia. Anyone interested in early Buddhist art when it was influenced by Central Asian (primarily Kushan) and Greek art should not miss this small but very impressive collection. One can clearly see how early renditions of the Buddha were impacted by both Kushan (the robes, the turbans, the jewellery) and Greek artists familiar with classical Greek gods (the wavy hair tied up in a chignon that later would become the Buddha's ushnisa, the heavy draped robe that with Buddhism's migration eastward into China, Southeast Asia and Japan, becomes lighter and more Asian, etc.). What a wonderful discovery in the heart of Rome.

This almost empty museum was walking distance from our hotel so we went in. They have a decent collection of Iranian art as well as artifacts and pieces from other places. The Roma Card got us in without an entrance fee. This place is good for an hour or so unless you have a passion for this type of art. I would not say it is a must-see place in Rome although I found it interesting.

6 Euros and 10 minutes later I arrived back at the entrance/exit. Convinced I had gone wrong I set off in search of the elusive treasures of the orient that I had missed. I was back at the exit 5 minutes later realising I hadn't missed a thing. I am baffled why so little, in terms of exhibits, has apparently given so much pleasure to previous Tripadvisor pundits. In my opinion - give it a miss and give the 6 Euros to charity.

The art was great. Panels also in English, but the font rather small. Tucci was an important explorer and he and his wife put together significant collections of Asian art.
