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

The exhibition is not large, but inteligently prepared, with quality pieces. You can see how the times were reflected in interior design. We enjoyed The exotism, magic realism and children room.

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

Got a combined ticket with one of the other Nervi museums. The guy at the ticket desk was very pleasant and friendly. The entrance was a little difficult to find as we thought it would be from the park, but it is from one of...More
