There are however some museums that are not so well known, but are well worth a visit.
One of these museum is the Centrale Montemartini.
This used to be a powerstation, and was opened in 1912, named after the engineer, Giovanni Montemartini. Its huge turbines provided the electricity for a large part of Rome. During the sixties, it was no longer in working and there were plans to convert the powerstation into a museum.
In 1997 a large part of the collection from the Capitoline Museums was moved to the Centrale Montemartini. The bonus is the absolutely amazing combination of classical statues and inudstrial design.
|The engines are also art.|
Whenever you are in Rome next, do not forget this museum, it is a wonderful museum!
