  • Great rainy day stop. The special exhibition of Hieronymus Bosch is worth the price of admission. We visited early in the morning when they were delivering the trash to the "trash" boat (no tucks in V...  more »
  • In this museum are works by Tiepolo, Tintoretto, Bellini and many other of the late 16th century-17th century. Recommended.

  • A beautiful Museum with some works fine ... but not great, I honestly thought it was a little better. Good location and there are long lines ... certainly don't expect a fabulous exposure

  • Well, you have to like your devotional Catholic painters, and your grand thematic layouts, but hard to argue with the scale and thoroughness. The guides could be clearer in terms of building layout. Would have liked a few more Titians and a few less of the second tier, but very impressive nonetheless.
  • Not overwhelmingly impressive, but I was particularly interested in their exhibit that covered the restoration of several pieces. It closed earlier than wrecked so didn't get to see it all.
  • An amazing collection that is well organized allowing the visitor to progress at ease and ansorb the works of art at a leisurely pace.
  • The David statue is really the highlight of this place and it is not all that big... But it is well worth it to see David! I highly recommend downloading an audio tour on your phone.
  • Old forgotten masters in a neglected but beautiful art museum. This certainly isn't the grande exposition of the louvre or the national portrait gallery but the dark religious motifs tell of a time guilt of conscience has yet to forget. My favorite part was looking at the glorious paintings of Venice of ye olde time and recalling, "Wait a second, I've just walked from there and seen that".
