The Accorsi - Ometto Museum, open to the public in Dicember 1999, hosts the polished collection of Pietro Accorsi, one of the most important European antique dealers of the 20th century.

The Museum is conceived as a home-museum elegantly furnished, in accordance with the antique dealer's taste and the sensibility of Giulio Ometto, his longstanding collaborator and President of the Foundation.

The 27 rooms of the museum, reconstructed with extraordinary richness, recreate a refined home of the eighteenth century, where furniture and objects are fitted into an ancient setting to each other.

Among the many masterpieces held, the collection includes the secretaire-cabinet in rare wood with ivory and tortoiseshell made in 1738 by Pietro Piffetti, considered certainly "one of the most beautiful piece of furniture in the world".

One can only visit this collection of various decorative objects with a guide. We were lucky that there was an English-speaking guide when we visited and she gave us a private tour. Photography was prohibited, hence no interior photos are attached. Buy your tickets at the ticket office in the courtyard, then cross the courtyard and go up the steps... More

It is lovely collection of household elements, which reflects richness and vibrant lifestyle of several centuries! you allowed to walk around with guide and need to know some Italian, or ask for English reading material. Be prepared that some rooms will remind you some palace interiors!

A marvellous collection of gorgeous objects are on view over a multitude of lovely rooms. The palace provides a grand showcase for the pieces. The priceless exhibits cover the full gamut from precious metalwork, porcelain, glass. ivory, to furniture and paintings. All a delight to see. A temporary exhibition on art related to putti starting from the Baroque period was... More

This building of the XVII Century is really special. Near piazza Vittorio Emanuele is on Via Po. It's a museum of Decorative Art. Very interesting the collections and well exposed! You cannot miss it if you love art and inside the museum you could be in Vienna!

I went to this museum to see the special exhibit on cherubs, which was lovely. I took the tour of the rest of the museum, which was in Italian, and the only way you are permitted to view the exhibit. I was given an English printed guide to help. I do not know if I will visit this museum again,... More

You enter the palace and you fill as a guest, rather than a visitor. I often pay a visit to this museum, both for the always interesting art exhibitions that Fondazione Accorsi hosts and for the museum itself. The exhibitions are not so large, so your attention is always very high also because of their quality. Sometimes, you get the... More

This was my wife's top site to visit. Needless to say it was a great disappointment, especially knowing the City has so many other attraction that are well done. The staff was cold and the exhibits boring. The Museum of Decorative Arts in Lyon is much better. My wife's review on leaving "what a waste of time" ...well said

I always enjoy seeing a decorative arts museum and I really enjoyed seeing the 27 decorated rooms in this museum. My visit was guided and my lady guide spoke good English. The furniture and art in the museum had very high quality. The rooms had flower arrangements, as if someone lived in them, and this added beauty to the rooms.

This museum was a complete surprise. Normally my husband would be totally switched off by a collection of porcelain and furniture and he went expecting to be in and out very fast!
