  • Again we could not visit the Museum which was closed for renovation, the schedule to the ships, although small and despite the explanations very limited, worth it for the different style of construction wooden used until the 20th century. The area of the Arsenal is also worth.

  • The Museum is currently closed for restoration. It is possible to visit the only part with the boats, the entrance of which is located towards the inside after officers of the MM. Full-price admission 5 euro, frankly too many to visit three warehouses of the old dusty and poorly lit, arsenal hold within them a MAS, a part of the ship "Electra" of Marconi, the Bucintoro 20 mm Breda machine guns in various presidential configuration, some naval mines, a hyperbaric chamber Galeazzi, a support boat diver and a motley collection of boats all with little or no explanation. Sincerely, history buff and I have to admit some disappointment.

  • This isn't the most rich and interesting visit that we made in Venice. But unfortunately, that we will retain in especially, is the attitude execrable and shocking the person at the ticket office. Indeed, we had bought a pass for several museums, which was supposed to give us a discount in other museums, identified on a prospectus with 1 *, which one below (we thought). We are therefore at the entrance with the pass. Right now irritated, she we wrong dryly, us noting that this museum is identified on the flier with 2 *. Which means, no discounts. In short, we had misread, we recognize and pay, but my husband however made a remark, polite but realistic on the fact that more clear instructions would be desirable to avoid an unpleasant feeling of deception. While US banking, aggressive response of the person, in french: If you're not happy, you don't have what to bring to you... + colleagues sniggering behind... The arms fall me again... Outraged by the remarks, I decides to take the word and ask him to cancel the sale actually ' back home '. She refused, thus adding dishonesty to his natural rudeness. The content of the visit, it is not worth getting so spit on his face. Shame of digust so tourists, yet gladly willing to do live small museums like the one here... to the wise.
