About
Palazzo Tursi Since 2004, the Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Tursi – the three historical, municipally-owned stately homes in the 16th-century Strada Nuova – constitute a continuous exhibition devoted to ancient art: the Museums of Strada Nuova. The Palazzo Rosso, historical residence of the Brignole Sale family, and the Palazzo Bianco, a prestigious art gallery, have been open to the public since the end of the 19th century; the Palazzo Tursi, the seat of the Municipality, hosts a museum as well as cultural and official events. Joint in a continuous exhibition path, the three buildings retain their own specific historical features and collections, transforming the Strada Nuova into a real ‘museum-street’: a masterpiece of the Genoese architectural and residential tradition, with a cultural establishment unique in size, features, quality and prestige. The Museums of Strada Nuova also provide cafeteria services and bookshops.

1/3 nice, 1/3 blah, 1/3 comically bad. Partly closed and no museum passes during my visit.
Oct 2020
I'm not one to rate the baroque palace aspect, but artwise, It's like looking at a pile of leftovers. There are many works by many 'big name' artists, but the more famous the artist, the worse the art. You can laugh at it if that's your thing. Don't get me wrong- there were some absolute delights here amongst the chaff. Part of my disappointment stems from the Rossi building being closed, and the fact that The Genova Museum Pass was discontinued Oct 2020. I'd add another star to my review if I could use a discount pass or if the admission were cheaper.

To me, the most interesting part of this complex was the ceiling of the Paganini room, a masterpiece of fresco and trompe-l'oeil. Yet there was no info at all about it.

Finding your way around is quite tricky. Usptairs, downstairs, outdoors then back in, then out again to another unmarked wing. At least there is a fair bit to see if you find it all.

If I'm ever in Genova again I may give these musei another chance, but only if the entire complex is open, and definitely not without a discount.

Primarily an 'old masters' art gallery
Oct 2020 • Couples
Not what we were expecting, perhaps because we had not researched sufficiently. Our experience may also have been affected by covid restrictions - not sure. .

Only two of the 3 palaces were open when we visited today with Rosso closed for renovations. Entrance fee was 9 euro. The other two palaces are basically museums and not presented as palaces or residences.

They are interlinked as if yiu are visiting a single property and are mostly full of religious, old master paintings, including a few by the likes of Van Dyke and Carvaggio. If this type of art interests you then you'll love it. Unfortunately we thought we were visiting historical residences.

There is also a small display relating to Paginnini and some exhibits of pharmaceutical jars and coins.

The gardens looked nice from what we could see from the windows but these were closed.

Wasn't really our 'thing'.

One of numerous museums on Via Garibaldi and part of a combination ticket (I would still recommmend getting the Museum Pass though - even the 24hr one - you'll get your moneys worth on the 2nd entry)
Just.... too much stuff to describe!!!! Frescoes, paintings, furniture, metal & porcelaine things - all with nice doze of history!
Highly recommend

Incredibly rich

Genoa, being an historical rich town, has a lot of very interesting museums, with important masterpieces and great collections. There are several Museums in Via Garibaldi or in the nearby, all to be visited.

Good to see with Genoa Museum Card
Sep 2019 • Couples
We saw all three palaces here. The best one was the Rolli, because though the first level is now an art gallery, the higher level remains a palace. The other two palaces are now art galleries. Buy the museum card for 12 euro. Great deal.

The must see in Genoa
Sep 2019
This is not a UNESCO world heritage site for nothing .. it showcases the palazzo of Genoan royalty and Uber wealthy middle class .. and has the local art collections with some treasures from Van Dyke, Canova and Strozzi. And if u are a music lover Paganini’s Canon .. his favourite violin .. is on show .. need about 3hrs

Very interesting.

Buy the museum card if you plan to visit a few whilst you are in Genoa. These three palazzi are devoid of furnitire but filled with amazing art work. You can still appreciate the size and appearance of the palazzi. The art work is well set out and flows from room to room.

Three palaces, similar yet different and well worth visiting.
May 2019 • Couples
Val and I walked from the port and spent half the day visiting these three palazzo’s. If you purchase the combined ticket it save you a few euros and since their very close to each other is doable in a half day.
It is interesting to see the original furniture, especially the beds which were pretty small, and the ceiling murals.
