  • Nice Museum that traces the history of the Crystal of Murano and shows the diversity of his creations. Clear and modern presentation in a beautiful Palace.

  • When you saw them do not forget them anymore. Glass masterpieces are exhibited in the Museum of Murano glass. They range from classic vases, plates and glasses in superb chandeliers, real glass sculptures, butterflies that seem to fly, even a superb garden glass (model!) with hedges, flower pots (even the flowers in the vases are glass) and fountains. There are truly extraordinary pieces, which can easily be photographed (no flash!) for later re-admire forever. Tickets cost 10 euros, but the exhibits are amazing. Highly recommended!

  • 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.
