  • We had the pleasure of meeting this museum with amazing pieces, to see the sculptor doing a horse in glass at the time, and it was spectacular!

  • Fine museum with fantastic glass history. Was guided by a guide who spoke fluent English. Good museum with the logical structure of glass history. Nice toilet facilities and nice Museum shop. Beautiful House.

  • Go to Murano and not go to this Museum and like going to Paris and not go to Tower. The value and 8 euros per person. In 30 minutes you see everything. But don't expect something from another world.

  • Not sure it was worth the money, but some interesting pieces of glass work. A few videos to watch, which were enjoyable.
  • A must see for any one interested in why Murano glass is so good. A great exhibition of old and new glass.
  • Great museum for art glass. The route inside the museum isn't clear at all, so make sure you are going to every room (even to the room downstairs which hides in the middle of the tour).
  • If you are in Venice and are at all interested in the famous Murano glass and the history of glass making, I recommend taking the tour here. The museum takes you from the very origins of glass making up to the modern day fabrication of glass which you can see on the island that day. If you are a history buff, it is a must. I had the fortune of being there when they were hosting a special installation, Glass Art for the Aperitif. Really interesting.
  • I loved it. Collection of nice glass works.
