The museum and crypt are very interesting and well worth a visit. The museum is very informative and has some very interesting items related to the lives of the Capuchin friars. The crypt itself is very creepy and a little disturbing. That doesn't mean it is not worth visiting at all. It is definitely worth your while if you are looking for something a bit different. The visit itself can be relatively short as the museum and crypt are not very big. It can also be a little expensive. There is also a nice church worth checking out next to the museum whilst you are in the area.

Fascinating if gruesome museum with crypt. Staff rude - won't allow photos and even told me off for using my phone in the gift shop to translate a word. So you can't take photos of the skeletons but don't worry you can buy a mug or t-shirt with them on on the way out.

Tourist trap to fundraise for missions abroad. The bones are a grotesque curiosity. This is not a museum. Save your money and spend time at any of Rome's authentic historical sites. This isn't one of them.

This place was really incredible. First you tour the museum, which tells the story of many famous Capuchin friars and the history of the order. Then, you tour the crypt. It is not very big and is a bit drafty, so bring a sweater. One must be quiet and respectful here, as it is a place of rest for the deceased Capuchin friars. My only true disappointment here was being unable to take pictures, especially since the crypt was the main reason for my visit. I purchased a few postcards of the crypt on my way out thru the giftshop to commemorate my visit (since no pics), which also supports the friary.

Very interesting museum and chapel, no need for the tour guide, it is a small place so you can over-hear them all while you are in there. We had a good time in the museum but then were crowded and rushed through the area you pay for. This was because we were caught in between two tours. A little pricey, but worth it. If you are not wearing appropriate attire (as it is a sacred place) you can purchase a cover for one euro.
