  • Fascinating museum on the art of glass making. The pieces exhibited were exquisite and the videos of how some of them are made were fascinating.

  • Lots of interesting glass objects to look at here. We spent almost an hour visiting. Possibly there should have been some photographs showing how glass making had changed over time, or a video running. The modern art section had some outstanding pieces.
  • Really enjoyed this museum. We bought the museum pass which included 11 places to visit and i think that was the best way to visit this one. The work here is really amazing. Really recommend spending time here and taking in all the information.
  • I was really impressed with this little museum. It had some interesting pieces and it was just enough to keep the 12 year olds in our party interested for an hour or so. A nice place to escape the heat for a bit and see some of the history of glass making in the city as well as see and understand contemporary glass making in the city. We entered with the Museum Pass which was a great buy.
  • If you are into the history of this amazing craft, that’s the place to go in Murano. Not too busy when we visited, it was very lovely. I hoped the exhibition would be more extensive, but it was good anyway. There’s a nice garden in the back to sit and chill out for a while after your visit.
  • Best place to start the glass tour of murano. Many specialist items dating back hundreds of years. Amazing chandeliers and modern art pieces to see. €10 entry per adult. Opens at 10am
