From Monday 13 September the Oriental Art Museum E. Chiossone will be closed for a few months for adaptation works.
The Oriental Art Museum Edoardo Chiossone is open Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. Closed on Mondays.


Designed by architect Mario Labò, this museum preserves and exhibits the rich heritage of Japanese and Chinese art collected in Japan by Edoardo Chiossone between 1875 and 1898: paintings, prints, weapons and armour, bronzes, lacquerware, ceramics, porcelain, costumes, and textiles, with approximately 2000 pieces on permanent display.

Due to their delicacy and fragility, Ukiyo-e paintings and prints by famous artists, such as Harunobu, Utamaro, Hiroshige, and Hokusai, are displayed during temporary exhibitions.
