  • A very nice collection which primarily consists of Japanese and Chinese art (there is also a small selection of Gandharan objects). The explanatory material in Italian and English is very informative and the museum has done some interesting work acknowledging why such a rich collection exists in Trieste in the first place.
  • 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.
  • There are some fantastic finds
