As a design enthusiast, I found this little museum, which is quite easily accessible from downtown Genoa, to be of great interest. It introduced me to a number of artists, ceramicists and furniture designers that I was previously unfamiliar with (or whose work I had...More

The Wolfson collection comprises artefacts, furniture and paintings from the first half of the twentieth century. The museum is strong on art nouveau and art deco, showing a series of striking objects in well planned displays. This is a very modestly sized collection, but really...More

But don't bother if furniture design isn't your thing. We have been to the Wolfsonian in Miami, FL, so we knew what to expect. This small jewel of a museum was a lovely cool respite from a hot day. It's just big enough to cover...More

Nervi is home to several art museums, all included in the Genovapass, and all worth a visit. For me, Wolfsonia is the best, with its excellent collection of early 20th century Italian works, and its fine assembly of furniture, but the other museums, devoted to...More

A few kilometres from central Genoa, this small museum Is worth visiting. It is close to three other museums (Gallery of Modern Art, Frugone Collection and Luxoro Museum) and it houses works going from the late 1800s to the end of World War II. The...More

The photos attached to these reviews give only a glimpse into the breadth of this museum's collection, and in the beautiful settings it's found. Definitely buy the combination ticket, if not the GenovaPass, an equally good bargain especially if bought with transportation, and plan on...More
