Overview

The Museum is housed in the old convent of "San Francesco fuori le mura", whose building dates back to 1315. In 1806, the church was deconsecrated and the convent became a warehouse; since 1997, thanks to the contribution of European Union, the spaces hold the exhibition halls. The itinerary starts on the ground floor with various antiquities found in the Venetian lagoon. Ceramics, glasses and coins tell us about the way of life and the city-trades from the pre-Roman times. The room on the first floor is devoted to the cartographer Sabbadino, who realized an accurate map of Chioggia in 1557. Several saltpans are depicted: in the Middle Ages, the city was an important centre for the production of the precious "sal Clugiae". On the second floor, the exhibit explores the local shipbuilding system and the professions of seafaring. Among the numerous models, the most typical one is the "Bragozzo", a local 19th-century boat, with its sails, nets and windshields.

We came here to learn something about the construction of the islands of Chioggia and Venice. Unfortunately, the explanations were only available in Italian for most exhibits. Luckily we could translate most of it via Google translator, however with poor quality. Aside of that, the...More

I really enjoyed this tiny museum which hosts artifacts from the roman times on the ground floor, to medieval and modern ones on the second. On the third floor is a very interesting display of the boats and sails of the Venetian Lagoon.
