  • For a visit with children, it's very interesting. All the topics and presentations are very playful.

  • A beautiful staging of prehistoric fossils to start then a part on the peoples of Africa friendly. The suite is more firm of taxidermist or colonial hunting lodge. In all cases, children (2-8 years) loved and the language barrier has at no time been a problem.

  • We let the visit for late afternoon and it was phenomenal, because loved my little daughter. It is a small museum in a Palace of the Grand canal that allows you to relax while children roam the halls amaze with the amount of things and setting of the Museum.

  • Nice museum.
  • Content path but interesting Museum houses a newly renovated section on fossils from Africa. More outdated section on wildlife, while it is absolutely disappointing the Hall Aquarium. Path of 30-60 minutes, remains a good diversion for children.

  • Not bad to find it in Venice but more for small children. Let's say it was part of our 11 museums pass. Especially museums c an opportunity to find a bathroom free of charge. Laughing out loud

Where to stay in Venice

Save money and avoid tourist crowds by booking your accommodation outside the historical center of Venice. Central Venice is full of picturesque canals and narrow lanes, but it is also extremely noisy and hectic throughout the day and late into the night. You can explore the ancient city's charms at your own pace by staying at a comfortable B&B or small hotel located in the city's residential suburbs. To stay close to the finest beaches and restaurants, check into a hotel on the island of Lido, the city's famous seaside resort.
