  • We visited this museum by early afternoon. Certainly a lot of people in the island but quieter inside. This technical museum traces the evolution of the different objects in glass manufacturing process since the fifteenth century. We understand the different steps through movies or different pads available in french and detailed information. The coherence of a room by century is ideal. They are mainly finished products which are available. However, is not enough emphasis on materials or tools.

  • With the backgrounds, which one finds in the Museum, you can see the pieces in the costs incurred by the shops again with different eyes. Definitely a must when you visit of Murano.

  • The history of the glass work, beautiful, great building, tour to Murano. Super interesting video about all the ways of working with glass. Reduction for children/teenager.

  • 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.
