  • Located on the island of Murano, the Glass Museum will give you a quite a lot of information on the making of glass and the interesting history of glass making in Venice. There are displays as well as...  more »
  • Beautiful journey through the wonders of glass. Historical exhibits, from lachrymatories to the wonders of vases and centrepieces, artistic works created by the fusion Masters and artists. Clear both paper signs on bulletin boards, both short documentaries along the way and trained and courteous. Also suitable for children, but to be followed carefully! Beautiful collection of beads and the most illustrious characters murrine with portraits of the particulars of the nineteenth century. Alternate in the year also temporary exhibitions. Council a brief stop at the beautiful inner garden, also accompanied by benches. Bathrooms clean and accessible.

  • Many exhibits are presented clearly. Interesting additional information displayed on multilingual information cards. Interesting journey of glass art through the centuries. Except for a few videos, some of the manufacturing process to see what was a bit of a shame but unfortunately not really was. It liked us and we were impressed by the creativity and the technical skill of glass artists. One should be only prepared the regular Eintroittspreis of 12 euros to pay, if you are interested also with a museum pass in any case worth a visit!

  • Very beautiful but extremely expensive and you are not left to explore by yourself. You're escorted from your boat into the factory and herded through all the processes til you finally reach the shop. Nice to see but unless I win the lottery.....
  • A great pace to explore the history of glass making in Brano. Tickets can be bought together with other museums for a really good price.
  • I wish it were a little bigger but the collection is varied and historically interesting, anyone with any enthusiasm for glass art should definitely check it out.
  • Well worth the entry fee. Really interesting. Took us about 90 mins. Would recommend!
  • Interesting museum if you have a passion for Glass. Otherwise not worth the entry price - only a few items are exhibited and overall nothing impressive.
