    Depending on what you characterize a museum as, the oldest museum is Ennigaldi-Nanna’s museum, which existed around 530 BCE. It was a private museum with restricted access to the collection. Still, the oldest public museums in the world were located in Rome during the Renaissance, so as early as the 14th century. As of the Enlightenment, one of the earliest collections of public art in the world was the Capitoline Museums, located in Rome. They were started by Pope Sixtus IV in 1471 and held ancient sculptures.
