Very interesting museum. For me mostly for the temporary Gormley expo
Pauline Depière (12 months ago)
Beautiful building and interesting collection of sculptures over a century. They look to the future as much as documenting the work of Lehmbruck. Definitely worth spending an hour or more.

Maybe worth seeing, but the tours do are rather boring tbh

Museum is interactive, come on scheduled days that museum is free and only requires voluntary donations.

It’s ok. If you love Modern Art then you might like it, otherwise it was underwhelming. Clean bathrooms

Santa Maria in Trastevere

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere is one of the oldest churches of Rome. The basic floor plan and wall structure of the church date back to the 340s, and much of the structure to 1140-43. The first sanctuary was built in 221 and 227 by Pope Callixtus I and later completed by Pope Julius I. 

The inscription on the episcopal throne states that this is the first church in Rome dedicated to Mary, mother of Jesus, although some claim that privilege belongs to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. A Christian house-church was founded here about 220 by Pope Saint Callixtus I (217-222) on the site of the Taberna meritoria, a refuge for retired soldiers. The area was made available for Christian use by Emperor Alexander Severus when he settled a dispute between the Christians and tavern-keepers.

The church underwent two restorations in the fifth and eighth centuries and in 1140-43 it was re-erected on its old foundations under Pope Innocent II.
