I had visited their official website and don't remember reading anything relevant to not accepting credit card for ticket purchase. I was denied entrance, since I didn't had any cash with me at that time. The woman there showed me a sign written in Italian,...More

An interesting building, but the collection is presented with absolutely no background, just kind of thrown together. The walk climb through the park is certainly worth the trip. Just don't expect much of your museum experience.

I found my way to this museum (which isn't well signposted) on a hot June day. And was the only person apart from the staff in the museum. Compared to many Italian museums, I didn't feel particularly welcomed and there wasn't enough in the collection...More

Very nice exhibition but half the place is closed. Finished the whole place in 20 min. Go only if you're in the area anyway.
