- It is housed inside the Neogothic Castle built between 1886 and 1892 for Capitan E. D'Albertis by the architects M.A. Crotta and G. Campora. The capitan donated it to the city on his death together with the ethnographical, archeological, and marine collections that he had put together during his many journeys to Africa, the Americas, and Oceania. It bears witness to the fashion for romantic gardens in this period which were particularly popular in Genoa. When the museum reopens it will again be possible to visit the Captain's residence with its Colombian room, the gothic room, the Turkish lounge, the reconstruction of the ship's cabin, the 11 sundials built by him in the castle, and the photographs of the further 100 which he built around the world.
