Beautiful little museum near the center of the city. The employees are very polite and professional, also ready to share their knowledge and point out most interesting details. Also the entrance is free.

Smallish yet excellent museum displaying artwork from India, China and Japan as found in Trieste. The collection, specially considering that Trieste is far from being known as a world-class museum city, is impressive, including priceless reliefs from Hellenistic India. Handy, well-suited location in the heart...More

This boutique museum is housed in a renovated historic building in the very heart of the old city. Adult admission is reasonably priced, especially taking into account what visitors can actually see on three floors - a feast of silk, lacquer, jade, mother-of-pearl and the...More

This museum is a great experience of art from China and Japan. The exhibits vary in range from weapons (like swords, etc.) to paintings (like ukiyo-e), clothing (silks, etc.), musical instruments, and other artistic stuff.

This is a small museum with two main sections dedicated to Japan and China. A large number of objects are from the XVIII and XIX centuries when Trieste had links with the Far East. I loved the kites and the Japanese prints. The museum is...More

It's a very small museum, but it well worths a visit, especially if you like Japan: the Japanese gallery is the biggest one and includes many Ukiyo-e, weapons (including bows) and many other items.
