Having much enjoyed our first visit to this fine museum last year, we were looking forward to our return. Unfortunately on this occasion so many of the works were missing, including their masterpiece by Pisano, the tomb of Margaret of Brabant, that our visit was a waste of time. If you propose to visit the museum in the near future,... More

Located just a few steps from the Torre this gem of a museum in an old monastery was recommended by our guide. It houses a medieval collection that intertwines Art and history in a way that seems appropriate to Genoa

We purchased the 48 hour museum pass and so attempted to see as much as we could in our short stay in Genoa. Our visit to this museum was left a bit late, so we did not have as much time to devote to it as we would have liked. The museum is built in a 13th century monastery and... More

Not only does this museum have some extraordinary exhibits, the quality of the display is wonderful. The designer should be congratulated for the way the modern architecture with its steel and use of colour enhances the pieces on display. A great way to spend an hour.

This is my third review of Sant'Agostino Musuem, so it's no secret that I really enjoy this museum, but for this review I have some very exciting news! The museum now offers a "60 Minutes in Museo di Sant'Agostino"; a self guided. English language, walking tour in the form of a brochure that points out the most important art work,... More

It’s been a long time since I last visited this museum; what a mistake! I was again amazed at the richness of art, how beautifully the art is displayed and how enjoyable the museum is. The works of art/sculpture/pottery/frescoes, architectural sculpture and fabulous paintings date back to the end of the 5th century to the 18th century and is the... More

Genova is a rough around the edges, harbor town that isn’t usually immediately appealing to tourists, but it contains many hidden gems. Sant’Agostino, or also known as the monastery of Sant’Agustino houses the Museo di Scultura Ligure is one of those gems! It contains fascinating pieces of medieval architecture, religious artifacts from Genovese churches, Roman columns, sculpture, painted panels and... More
