A Museum to See: Rome Architecture museum!

I’m a student at the American University in Rome. I’m very interested in sharing my thoughts on various museums I’ve visited, most recently the Trajan’s Market Museum. The museum is perfect for someone that loves Rome and its history, the architecture of roman buildings, whether it’s learning for pleasure or work. You’ll learn about it when you visit! It is a large complex of Roman ruins located on the opposite end of the Colosseum. Fun fact: it used to be a shopping mall.  It was built during the first decade of the 2nd century. My professor advised me to purchase a MIC card, which grants access to multiple museums.

Archaeological area: 

There are five monumental complexes built into “imperical forms”. Its politics has a big place based on its religious, political and administrative replacement. The five names consist of the forum of Caesar, Augustus, the temple of peace, the Forum of Nerva or Transitorio, and the Forum of Trajan as built in different areas of time. Each temple holding its own kind of power and place into their society.

While this is only a sliver of what is in store at this museum. It contains much more history than this. including an area outside to see and more levels of the remains of this building. For more information click here.
