  • I revisited this exceptional magnificent palace by his architecture sets its extraordinary frescoes (sensu stricto) and presence (for how much longer?) of a polyptych of Bosch sublime which alone is worth the trip but I do not forget either the huge mural on the ceiling of one of the room with corn plants and birds all at Green dominant of an effect some it was the first time that there are traces of the 'new world' in a palis Venice I learned on my last visit that the Palace was closed (due to lack of Fund cutbacks understaffed?) it would be a disaster for all lovers of painting Venice and lovers of Jerome Bosch this almost magical place something majestic courtyard is spacious ticket paired with the Accademia visit free the first Sunday of the month as long as the cultural and other Venice authorities maintain this place open to the public (its opening is not that old a decade?) I've seen wonderful temporary exhibitions (Canaletto a Michelangelo statue restored etc)

  • We discovered, quite by accident, this ancient building recently restored Venetian patrician, during one of our visits to Venice remains pleasantly surprised especially for soffittali detailed pictorial decorations and amazing details. The visit will not take much time but is also justified for the impressive architectural structures (courtyard, stairway and Forum) and for the few, but select artworks, very meaningful taste of own between five and six hundred. (Ancient Greek, Hellenistic and Roman statues purchased throughout the Mediterranean basin by various patricians Grimani, which once adorned the halls of the Palace, you can now be seen in the archaeological museum in piazza San Marco). Take place with a certain periodicity cultural events and concerts are accessible with the entrance fee. We attended a concert of Baroque music very interesting.

  • The palace is very nice, but the State Museum that occupies its beautiful rooms is very neglected. A bureaucratic museum that would need a better management and a little Tender, Care and Love.
  • Beautiful palazzo but rude staff and sparse information (for example that the Bosch painting was not present).
  • Interesting building, but the paintings were all on loan to other galleries. Check to see that what you aim to see is actually present.
  • Great to visit as a bonus after the academia. The visit is definitely faster but it brings a great perspective on how palazzos could be in their original states.
  • A good place to see some great paintings and statues surrounding the history of Venice. It was over very quickly, however.
