The exhibits here are interesting and worth seeing for sure, but it's the building itself you come to see. Make sure you buy the 24 or 24 hour museum card to get it included in your tour. The opening hours are a bit hard to...More

It's taken 8 trips to Genoa to find this gem. I was lucky to have a pesto lesson in the bowels of the oldest building in Genoa. Dating back to the 12th Century, the museum has art even on the walls. An amazing find!

I can say safely that this museum is one of the most oldest monumental place in Genoa. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here and spent some good time digesting the history of this place. Must visit for all the visitors to this city.
