Night at the Museum
Advertisements are appearing to promote the summer release of the second "Night at the Museum" movie with Ben Stiller. Last Saturday the city of Rome had its own night at the museums with free admission from 8pm to 2am. We took advantage of this cultural event and visited the Museum at Palazzo Massimo, which houses a collection of ancient sculptures, mosaics and paintings from various baths around the city.
In addition to many images of beauty,
here are some of the ugly faces we encountered.
Was this ancient Roman a relative of Eleanor Roosevelt?
