I had visited their official website and don't remember reading anything relevant to not accepting credit card for ticket purchase. I was denied entrance, since I didn't had any cash with me at that time. The woman there showed me a sign written in Italian, that mentioned the credit card denial. However, if you don't know Italian, then you can now know that, not that it would help, but just saying.

This museum is a bit hidden away behind a very nice park near Piazza Corvetto. It’s worth the climb to get to it. It has a nice collection of Japanese and Chinese artifacts mostly from the 19th century but many going further back. We were very delighted to see the collection of Samurai armour which are works of art. We were pleasantly surprised by this museum. Another delightful discovery was the waterfall just above the museum a short walk up the pathway. You can even climb up to a cave underneath the waterfall. If you like small, intimate museums and oriental art, this is the place for you.

The collection is fabulous if you like Japanese art and artefacts. Some great samurai armour' tsuba and netsuke. Not a lot of info to inform you of what is on display, but if you have a very slight knowledge you will enjoy what is a terrific collection for one individual. The garden walk up to the museum is tranquil and a distinct contrast to a bustling city. A few paths are closed off and the aviaries no longer have any birds. Overall well worth a visit and very uncrowned - we had the place pretty much to ourselves

An interesting building, but the collection is presented with absolutely no background, just kind of thrown together. The walk climb through the park is certainly worth the trip. Just don't expect much of your museum experience.

The climb up the hill was worth it. One might not expect a museum of Japanese artefacts in Genoa, but this was a really good collection, well laid out, and interspersed with some interesting glass art. The setting is also good with a view from the top. It was also good value.
