The museum has very nice art facts but the grounds leading to the museum are truly impressive. I want to go back in late October when the leaves are changing

It's been a few years since I last visited Edoardo Chiossone museum and I'm sorry to say nothing has changed! It seems the curator has no interest in educating the visitors regarding this admittedly amazing collection of oriental art as the signage remains poor. What...More
