The Ara Pacis museum (or Museum of the Ara Pacis) is a museum in Rome that houses the Ara Pacis of Augustus, an ancient monument that was initially inaugurated on January 30, 9 B.C. The Ara Pacis Augustae is an altar dedicated to the Roman goddess of peace: Pax. It was commissioned by the Roman Senate in 13 BC to honor the return of Augustus to Rome, who came back from his three year peace mission in Spain and Gaul. Besides housing this major monument, the Ara Pacis museum is also a space for temporary exhibitions.
