Museums

Collections, exhibitions and galleries. The museum offer in Genoa is articulated and varied: next to the system of civic museums (Musei del Comune di Genova) there are also two state museums - Museo di Palazzo Reale and Galleria Nazionale di Palazzo Spinola - and several private structures.

The network of Genoese civic museums is divided into more than twenty locations and includes: the museums, the archives, the Documentation Center for the history of art and the image of Genoa, the specialist libraries and the Didactic Sector, which organizes activities and services for schools and families.

The sea, the art, the cultures of the world, science and nature, history and archeology are the thematic routes in which the civic museums are divided.

The museum hours are subject to seasonal changes, therefore it is advisable to consult the dedicated pages.
