The Villa Borghese is the third largest public park in Rome and feature a naturalistic English manner garden. Apart from the Borghese Gallery, the Borghese gardens is home to other incredible museums. There's the Villa Medici, a glorious 16th century mansion housing the French Academy in Rome, the Museo Pietro Canonica, a museum dedicated to showcasing the work of Pietro Canonica, and the Museo Carloi Bilotti, which is home to billionaire Carlo Bilotti's massive art collection.
At the Borghese Gardens, you can also enjoy an Alfresco movie at the Casa Del Cinema, an arthouse movie theatre. If you're visiting during the summers, book tickets for one of the outdoor movie screenings to make the experience even more memorable.
Generally, kids don't enjoy museums a whole lot. There are a lot of restrictions and honestly not a lot which would interest a kid. The Borghese Gallery is not one of those museums. Apart from the massive space kids have to run around and have a good time at the Borghese gardens, the gardens also house the fantastic Bioparco di Roma, a zoo which features over 200 different species of animals! There's also a puppet theatre, the Teatro Dei Burattini San Carlino which offers kids a unique experience unlike any other.
