Specialty Museum Museum
Grassi Museum welcomes visitors to the Ethnography Museum, the Musical Instruments Museum, and the Applied Arts Museum. Each has both permanent exhibits and alternating special exhibitions. Tour the Art Deco column hall, designed in shining red, gold, and blue, with its 12 ceiling-high columns. Walk through the inner courtyards, then check out the old Johannis cemetery. The permanent exhibition "From Ancient Times to Historism" covers more than 3,000 years of world art history. Many special exhibitions appear regularly throughout the year, such as the Grassi Trade Fair at the end of October. The onsite café is a nice resting spot between museums.

  • Rather solitary museum, parking is non-existent, but once inside the complex, a certain peace and quiet in the middle of a busy corner is to be cherished. The Museum of Musical Instruments is awesome, great for kids as well.
  • very interesting, much to see
  • Worth a visit
  • Represents the collection of unique art, modern and inspiring presentation. Also, the diversity and informal depth of the exhibits in the field of Ethnology was convincing. Although not necessarily cheap, but the visit meets more than the entry.

  • A bit expensive entrance and little explanation. Place in English but better is not to rely on it.
