  • We found the museum whilst having a Sunday morning stroll. The museum has a number of old boats, but given the history of Venice as a maritime power, I think it could have been better  more »
  • Inside the old palace just a few steps from Saint Mark's square are locked up exceptional historical value objects. I could view them for work and I must say that the effort to secure the works with the current restoration is undoubtedly meritorious. Unfortunately, this energy is not paid to the enhancement of the Museum, its works, its history. Very little would be enough to revive a great Museum, definitely of national importance! Hopefully someday the DoD understands that he, in his historical collections, a real treasure!
