The museum is located in a crypt under the church Santa Maria della Concezione dei Cappuccini. There are bones of nearly 4000 Capuchin friars stored in the crypt. The bones are arranged into macabre decorations.
The Capuchins have been using the church since 1631. Some of the bones used for the crypt were transported there from their previous destination.
The museum introduces the visitors to the Capuchin order, its history, and present-day activities.
The visit is not ideal for families with children since younger children may get scared by the spooky decorations of the Capuchin crypt.
The nearest metro station is Barberini (line A).
