Long Description:
Open to the public in 1734 under Clement XII, the Capitoline Museums are considered the first museum in the world, understood as a place where art could be enjoyed by all and not only by the owners.

The two main buildings of the Capitoline Museums are the Palazzo dei Conservatori on the southwest side of the Piazza del Campidoglio and the Palazzo Nuovo on the northeast side of the same piazza.

The third floor of the Palazzo dei Conservatori houses the Capitoline Art Gallery, housing the museums' painting and applied art galleries. The Capitoline Coin Cabinet, containing collections of coins, medals, jewels, and jewelry, is located in the attached Palazzo Caffarelli-Clementino.
