If visiting Venice and if you are planning to go to Murano for glass, do not miss the museum. It is packed with wonderful examples of Murano Glass over the centuries. The glass is mostly amazing. There is a brief introductory video that demonstrates the...More

I love glass - crystal, millefiore, stained glass, dichroic, etc. I have art glass paperweights, Lalique, Baccarat, Waterford, Loetz, seed and lampwork bead necklaces. I know glass, and was excited to visit this museum. Upon entry, there is little guiding signage. There is a lovely...More

Having been to Murano years ago with memories of being hustled by the many glass shops and dealing with the hoards of glass factory tours, I was reluctant to return to this island during our recent visit to Venice. After reading about this museum however,...More

We visited this museum but didn’t find it as interesting as the Lace Museum on Burano. There was a video to begin with which was educational but the glass pieces in the museum were not interesting to us.

I visited this museum several years ago and was disappointed at how dilapidated the exhibits were. The whole museum and all exhibits have undergone an excellent restoration. The items on view are very interesting. I did feel that there was more to the glass beads...More

Not a very large museum but the older specimens are quite impressive. The little videos at each station are informative and then the tour concludes with some very modern examples.

Tells the story of glass blowing with lots of examples in a light airy museum so you can see how the light plays on the glass with info boards in several languages. Of course the focus is on the skills of the Venetian glass blowers...More

I came here as I glass blow as a hobby......this museum is outstanding, showing history of glass and glass making throughout Venice and Murano in particular. Lots and lots of exhibits showing glass ( blown) and bead making throughout the centuries up to modern day.

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
