About Museo delle Anime del Purgatorio

Tucked away in a small church on the banks of the Tiber River, the Museo delle Anime del Purgatorio, or the Museum of the Souls of Purgatory, is one of Rome's most unusual and intriguing attractions. This hidden gem is not your typical museum; it's a collection that purports to show evidence of souls in purgatory reaching out to the living. Inside, you'll find displays of items supposedly marked by the deceased, including bibles, clothing, and table tops, with handprints and other signs they've left behind.

Curious about the best time to visit? This eerie museum can be a year-round adventure, but visiting during the quieter months of autumn and winter might just add to the mysterious atmosphere. Whether you're a believer in the supernatural or just a lover of the peculiar, this museum offers a unique glimpse into a Catholic tradition that fascinates and mystifies in equal measure.
