National Museum of Castel St. Angelo

Free entry to the National Museum of Castel St. Angelo

National Museum of Castel St. Angelo, known to many visitors as The Mausoleum of Hadrian, is a tomb to the Emperor Hadrian and the museum details the buildings history through collections of ancient Roman artefacts including pottery, paintings and military weapons.

Built over 2,000 years ago after the Emperor commissioned it as a mausoleum for himself and his family. The building was later turned into a fortress and was used a refuge for several Pope's and even as prison.

This tall, cylinder shaped structure is another iconic landmark on Rome's ancient skyline and popular with many visitors for its historical significance and interesting museum.

You can visit the National Museum of Castel St. Angelo for free with The OMNIA Vatican and Rome card.

"It was really good. Going straight to the front of the queue at the Vatican and the Colosseum was good. Enjoyed the open bus tour and used it a lot on the metro. Also used it for admission to Castel Sant'Angelo - would recommend it to friends!"
