The museum's collection was formed by Cardinal Scipione Borghese (1579–1633), the most knowledgeable and ruthless art collector of his day.

The museum is divided into two parts: the ground-floor gallery, with its superb sculptures, intricate Roman floor mosaics and over-the-top frescoes, and the upstairs picture gallery.
The tour starts in the entrance hall, decorated with 4th-century floor mosaics of fighting gladiators and a 2nd-century Fighting Satyr. As you enter in Sala I you can admire the Antonio Canova's daring depiction of Napoleon's sister, Paolina Bonaparte Borghese.
But it's Gian Lorenzo Bernini's spectacular sculptures that really steal the show. Just look at Daphne's hands morphing into leaves in the swirling Apollo e Daphne, or Pluto's hand pressing into the seemingly soft flesh of Persephone's thigh in the Rape of Proserpina.

Caravaggio dominates Sala VIII, and upstairs, the Picture Gallery offers a wonderful snapshot of Renaissance art.
