  • Burano-Lace Museum apart-deserves that you dip in his "colorful" atmosphere of seaside village ... the pictures I hope to make at least part of the magic of Burano, its shops, its houses.

  • Nice video of presentation. Poor content. Heating system that gives off foul smell (guess what ..) To admire the lace is best to visit various shops on the island and observe the seamstresses to work. Not worth the money, unless it is included in the museums.

  • Certainly, this museum is very well known, but I advise against it, very short (10 minutes tops) and not interesting!

  • It's small, but as someone who thought they had no interest in lace, I happily spent 90 minutes here. There are effective displays of old and modern lace work, along with items on the politics and representation of lace in other art, along with the building's history as a lace school. There is no commercialism at all - no postcards, no shop - which meant that I took dozens of photos of my favourite piece: a 17th Century altar decoration, telling the story of Jesus in a way that only the makers and a few people allowed close to the altar would have seen at the time. An amazing amount of work must have gone into it.
  • I think you've got to really appreciate lace to get the most out of this museum. It is very small, only worth doing if you've already got a museum pass and you're in Burano. Don't bother making a trip just for this museum
  • Really nice place with exhibition and lace makers working while you watch. English speaking staff enthusiastically explain the intricate lace making process. We'll be back!
  • Nice museum. Descriptions of methods, interviews with the lace makers and beautiful examples.
  • Small but informative. Some exquisite lacing work on display. Show at the end to give the island some context. Photogtaphy is allowed inside but not much to take photos of
