  • Come are backwards in the light of the comments, but we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the development of the site for visits of children. Probably was the renovation completed. Our two year old son has a lot of fun, from the garden to the interactive games (touchscreen, hologram, projections of all kinds, AR, etc.) through the chests in disguise, distorting mirrors and musical attractions. On-site staff was very open and communicative, unlike the first impressions on the phone. In situ, we only regret the lack of information panels on the parts of the House, and the fact that some. Thanks to the "provincia" of Imperia (Department) of the acquisition of this exceptional site and so well put it in value. Just to make it more conspicuous place! outside Monday afternoons only!

  • A truly magical place it seems to be in a place somewhere between a fairy tale and a circus. Very nice also the clown Museum, where children are literally mad with joy. Too bad for some non-functioning equipment and for hours and days of operation are limited. Anyway hats off to the municipality of Imperia for the immense work of restoration and maintenance of the structure

  • the visit has allowed me to know the genius of Grock thanks to the professionalism and passion of the guides who accompanied us. We spent almost three hours back even a little kids in the Museum of the clown.

  • Hearing the history of Villa Grock from its neighboring houses, one can really appreciate the efforts of Imperia to restore the villa. I was lucky to have been in Imperia and see Villa Grock, which has been designed by Grock himself. If you look closely at the details (e.g. windows, panels, even cement borders), you will see his artistic genius. It was unfortunate that when he died the house was left to ruins and I heard no family members took care of it. So I am thankful that the state of Imperia bought it and is slowly restoring it back and developed it into a museum. Grock is the one who popularized the red nose, and people should know more about him!
  • Lovely gardens and very interesting and innovative displays inside house. Only open to public on Monday afternoons.
  • The villa is nice but needs an urgent renovation
  • A magical, fantastic, for all ages, the villa with its Circus Museum, also interactive makes you play and have fun, the park with its pond and the bridge makes you dream. The girls involved in the management of villa super helpful, efficient and prepared, with maximum availability with a great desire to let the world know this enchanted place. If you switch from Imperia or for a trip out of town stop by here at villa Grock you'll love it. And don't complain if on internet c is written that opens only one day, the girls give the best availability, so contattatele and they will arrange a super eventful magic. Thanks Luisa for welcoming us.

  • With a large group of friends visited the Villa Sunday 22 April 2018, we were taken on the spot by a lady extremely available and helpful. Come to the Villa welcomed us with a big smile on Mrs. Luisa and once inside explained with much enthusiasm and cheer the life of the clown and the whole history of the building, which is wonderful with a bizarre architecture but gorgeous. I recommend everyone to visit this unique place and take pictures even at the pond below. Thank you again Mrs Luisa who enchanted us with her story with expressions by artist. Renato.
