Really interesting museum. The island of murano is gorgeous, but I wouldn't make a special trip for the sole aim of seeing the museum. You'd have a better time if you give yourself some time to walk around the island. There's some really amazing churches,...More

Fairly small museum, included in the Venice museum pass. Pretty works of art from different times in history, including a large section on glass beads. Unless you are particularly interested in the history of glass making or have many days doing touristy stuff in Venice,...More

We visited this museum primarily because it was covered by the Venice Museum Pass. The museum is relatively small but provides a good introduction to the history of glass production on Murano.

Not very much of interest in this museum. Wanted to see more Roman glass and was not interested in today's art glass.

The trip to Murano is a must when you visit Venice. A 25-30 minute ride on the Vaporetto (if you select the non-stop route) will deliver you at one of two stops on the island, usually the one where the glass factories concentrate. The Museo...More

I was rather disappointed by our visit to this museum. I guess I was expecting a little bit more than what we saw there. Sure, there were a number of exquisite pieces of glass over the centuries, but really, the information provided on the labels...More

Can't say enough good about this place. Plan for at least 2 hours. Facinating info about the history of glass, how it is made, different kinds, how it is shaped, and more. It is part of the Museum Pass.

The glasses display there are all masterpiece and state-of-the-art. They are all in excellent craftsmanship. The admission is not cheap but if you have purchased the museum pass, do not miss it.
