A few kilometres from central Genoa, this small museum Is worth visiting. It is close to three other museums (Gallery of Modern Art, Frugone Collection and Luxoro Museum) and it houses works going from the late 1800s to the end of World War II. The items contained (drawings, posters, sketches, books , paintings, sculptures, furniture, and glass, ceramic, wrought iron,... More

The photos attached to these reviews give only a glimpse into the breadth of this museum's collection, and in the beautiful settings it's found. Definitely buy the combination ticket, if not the GenovaPass, an equally good bargain especially if bought with transportation, and plan on spending a full day in Nervi. Friendly staff, all in a beautiful series of parks... More

Got a combined ticket with one of the other Nervi museums. The guy at the ticket desk was very pleasant and friendly. The entrance was a little difficult to find as we thought it would be from the park, but it is from one of the roads that cut through the park and you have to go out of the... More

A small museum with just 2 levels. Apparently the only other Wolfsonian apart from the one in Miami. Loads of Art Nouveau, in particular furniture. Some gems like a full kids room from the 1920s and some nice paintings. Went for the Mucha exhibition, which wasn't as good as expected (the advertised exhibition with a poster that wasn't even there!).... More

Once you have experience the gardens go in and sample the life of the wealthy. Italian mansions were always surrounded by fine art and furnishings and this museum is a fine example of this. Worth the visit .

Well worth the trip to Nervi - buy a combined ticket to see the other nearby collections. The furniture displays offer a great deal of inspiration.

This lovely museum shows why people should collect furniture and posters. The collection of art, tourist posters, and furnished rooms shows interesting aspects of Italian sensibility during the 20th Century. We enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone visiting Genoa.

If you are strolling along the one mile Passeggiata Anita Garibaldi in Nervi you will see signs in the brick walkway pointing you to the entrances to 4 museums in the Parco Villa Grimaldi which are worth an afternoon visit. The Wolfsoniana, is one of them and it has connections with Florida, as it’s founder Micky Wolfson lives between Miami... More
