Strada Nuova Museums

The Strada Nuova Museums are open at the following times: Tuesday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 7.30 p.m. Closed on Mondays.
The Museum of Palazzo Rosso is temporarily closed for structural and plant works.
Starting from 6 September, the Strada Nuova Museums will be working on the energy efficiency of their facilities, which in this phase will involve Palazzo Bianco.
The Museums will remain open to the public according to the normal opening hours and, in order to continue the activities, the works have been divided into successive lots. In this way, visitors will find that only some of the rooms in Palazzo Bianco will be closed for a limited period, but they will still be able to enjoy the overall cultural offer of this important city museum, which also includes Palazzo Tursi, with its recently renovated rooms dedicated to the master Paganini.

Since 2004 Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Tursi – the three historic residences owned by the Municipality in the Strada Nuova, which was built in the 16th century - form a unique exhibition itinerary dedicated to ancient art, the Musei di Strada Nuova: Palazzo Rosso, historic residence of the Brignole Sale family, and Palazzo Bianco, seat of a prestigious art gallery, have been open to the public since the end of the 19th century; Palazzo Tursi is now the seat of the city Municipality but, by the Administration's will, it is destined also to cultural, museum and  activities and to high representation functions.

The union of these three palaces shapes a continuous tour, in which every building maintains its proper historic features and collections, and was able to turn the 16th century street Strada Nuova (now called via Garibaldi) into a true “street museum”, a masterpiece of Genoese architecture and residential culture and into the seat of a cultural institution unique for its dimensions, features, quality and prestige."

From 6th August, in compliance with the latest ministerial provisions (DL 105/2021), access to the museum will be only possible with EU Digital Covid certiticate (Green Pass) to be shown to the staff at the museum entry.
