  • Wonderful museum that contains a huge collection of Japanese art objects and historical objects (swords, armours...). Very interesting. You have to enter from the "Valletta Di Negro" park (Piazza Corvetto)
  • Avery nice museum, with lots of eastern art works.
  • Beautiful museum but even better view
  • great place
  • A very interesting Museum, immersed in a green area really nice. The most important Museum of Oriental art in Italy and among the most important in Europe. Too bad it's little known, little noticed and undervalued. Lately the Conservatory of music makes a few gigs inside this Museum, we hope that through music in this atmosphere impressive being exploited.
