The Renaissance villa of Giovanni Andrea Doria houses the maritime collections of Genoa and the Rivieras, ranging from the 15th to the 19th century.
Visitors can admire precious maps, paintings, drawings, ship models, construction and navigation tools, and “visit” the old shipyards and workshops of the maritime world.
Of great significance are the stories of material culture by Ligurian sailors and shipwrights.

In recent years, the museum has established itself as a veritable cultural arena of Genoa’s Ponente, a meeting place for Associations offering a rich program of art exhibitions, and cultural and social events.
