This museum is a bit hidden away behind a very nice park near Piazza Corvetto. It’s worth the climb to get to it. It has a nice collection of Japanese and Chinese artifacts mostly from the 19th century but many going further back. We were...More

An interesting building, but the collection is presented with absolutely no background, just kind of thrown together. The walk climb through the park is certainly worth the trip. Just don't expect much of your museum experience.

The walk up with view was great, alleys through a hilly park . The museum is relatively small, but has nice artifacts.

The museum has very nice art facts but the grounds leading to the museum are truly impressive. I want to go back in late October when the leaves are changing

I found my way to this museum (which isn't well signposted) on a hot June day. And was the only person apart from the staff in the museum. Compared to many Italian museums, I didn't feel particularly welcomed and there wasn't enough in the collection...More

Very nice exhibition but half the place is closed. Finished the whole place in 20 min. Go only if you're in the area anyway.

Not easy to find, at the top of a wooded hill, with poor signage. Very Spartan building with no lift to upper floors and no refreshments. Desultory book stall. Worst of all the best objects were not on show because the top levels were unmanned...More
