  • A great Museum in every sense of the term: a lot of different rooms on a huge surface, the paintings of high quality, and sculptures in very good condition, little flat, I expected to see more works by Veronese.

  • We appreciated the art by Tintoretto exhibit was very good. The different rooms and levels of this museum made it very easy to view all the art. The floors were exceptionally beautiful. This is a well...  more »
  • Very beautiful place where I expected to see forward to the paintings beautiful but big disappointment: 6 rooms closed for renovation including some with well-known paintings. It does not prevent us but however we pay full rate that is high enough. This museum is of course really beautiful but leaves a bitter taste.

  • Do not get the audio guide! It was absolutely ridiculous. One of the commentaries literally only described the name of a painting and the artist of another artwork beside it. This information was already next to the artworks and entirely unnecessary if that was all it was going to provide. Many artworks did not have commentary, only a few so this was especially aggravating. Aside from that, many artworks that had numbers for the audio guide, upon typing it into the guide, it said that there was no commentary. Something I can't complain too much about however is that much of the art gallery was closed for renovations.
  • Beautiful collection of art. However it could be a bit easier to get round. We found ourselves frequently doubling back for large amounts of the exhibition and wondering if we'd missed any.
  • Incredibly beautiful gallery with some fine pieces of Christian artwork on display. I particularly enjoyed the Hieronymus Bosch paintings. We got there about 9.30am on a Sunday in late June and it was very quiet but filled up quickly.
  • Fantastic gallery in Venice. Wonderful permanent exhibits of classic works of arts by the masters. Beautiful building along the Grand Canal. A must see!!
  • No cafe. Decent toilets. Lots of Venetian art as you would expect. It is arranged sensibly.
