Italian culture ministry opens doors of state museums for free in March.State museums and archaeological sites in Rome and across Italy will be open for free for six days in a row, from 5-10 March 2019, as part of Italy's first edition of Settimana dei Musei.
The free museum week is included in a package of 20 days of free admission to state museums, first announced by Italy's culture minister Alberto Bonisoli last year.
The 2019 free museum week is preceded by a free museum Sunday on 3 March, meaning there will be a total of seven free museum days between 3 and 10 March.
In addition museums remain free for those under 18 while young people aged between 18 and 25 will pay the new reduced rate of €2 to enter museums and archaeological sites.
