Beautiful museum. But not for foreign tourists. You can ask for an audioguide, but there is so much noise in the museum that it is almost impossible to understand the audioguide. Above all is the explanation that you get too brief. A pity if you...More

We were 7 family members with 2 kids, ages 8 and 10. The museum is very well laid out, with several places with interactive displays. Kept the kids very engaged in the tour.

Galata museum is worth visiting. If you decide to visit Genoa, I recommend visiting this museum and Palazzo Reale as they have many interesting things to offer.

We really enjoyed our visit to this museum. An array of exhibitions, collections of art and replica boats to have a play on. There is so much history across the four floors that you should allow plenty of time to see everything. Also be sure...More
