In the collection a museum quite interesting, considering that Trieste is a little-visited town. The first Sunday of every month is free: it may be a good time to visit, especially for residents.show original

The amount of objects is impressive but not excessive to the point of taking the risk, as I have often seen it happen, queasy visitors, exposure is very neat and clear. As a whole is really a little gem you can't miss if you are interested in art and culture.show original
Trieste was one of the main sea ports of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and thus trade with the Orient was big business. The museum has a lovely collection of ekiyo-e prints from Japan, some gowns, pottery as well as some samurai swords and armour. The items are predominantly from the 19th century. The downstairs appears to be dedicated to the relationship between Trieste and the Orient which was of particular interest and would have been a unique point for this museum. However, it would have been good if the signage in this area could be translated into more languages. I know it is much to expect but would be great to have more details in English. I felt the level of English provided in the other areas was sufficient for me to get an understanding. I do think the museum is missing a trick by not selling some products based around the items they have. Wouldn't be top on my list if only limited time in town but worth visiting if you have an hour to spare.
Bastiano DeschmannInteresting how little known Museum of Trieste, its definitely worth a visit, especially if you are lovers of Oriental art. Spread over three floors offers a wide range of Chinese and Japanese especially objects: vases, clothes, pottery, weapons and even kites! Very wide selection of original designs, including which Hokusai.show original
