This article attemps to give a view of how the Romans provided means of reception of the 'cultural heritage' and art exhibitions. The different modes of exhibition are discussed in context of the trhree different venues of reception: the public sphere (negotium), the semi-public sphere of the Roman atrium, and the sphere of the private house (otium). The artcle also remsarks on the formalized management and policy concerning the cultural heritage that developed in Rome from the time of Augustus. Particular emphasis is made on the role of the new office of curator created by Augustus.
