The Gladiator Museum in Rome offers you an exciting insight into antiquity

On two floors, visitors are given a differentiated insight into the period from around 700 BC to the 4th century AD. From the breastplates of Roman gladiators to helmets and other armor items from the Roman legions, you will find an exciting arsenal of faithful reconstructions.

The museum’s exhibits have been reconstructed using ancient casting and molding techniques to maximize the level of detail. The Gladiator Museum is conveniently only a short distance from the Colosseum, so these two sites can be combined ideally.
