Centrale Montemartini

Centrale Montemartini is an art gallery based in an old power station located in the suburbs of Rome. It houses the parts of the Musei Capitolini collection that until recently were kept in storage. Unlike London's Tate Modern it retains all the old power station equipment and uses it as a background to the exhibits which give a surreal feel to the place.

The museum is at Via Ostiense 106 and is on the opposite side of the main road from the Garbatella metro stop.
