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 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.

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.

I've heard of this museum before we came to Trieste. Surprisingly it was in a two-minute walk from city center (piazza unita). The staff was very kind to us and gave a small discount :) The exhibits of the museum are of not a very...More
