  • Walk along the beautiful Venice we visited this Venetian Palace. It is not the most popular, admission is 8 euros. The visit is quite cortaHora. hour and a half it through everything. Each room is decorated. You can see perfumes and bottles, clothing, textiles used with its moulds of prints. vests and original costumes. Mobiario of time. Audiovisual very interesting. There is no audio guides.

  • The Museum is located in a pretty typical Venetian Palace. The rooms are inetressantes, more than the costumes and fabrics present

  • This museum is not expensive but it's not too big, too, appreciated the notes in the history of perfumery very attached to the city

  • It's advertised as a textile/costume/perfume museum, but there are only a few garments on display. The most interesting was a room with 50 or so waistcoats - if you find 50 nearly identical waistcoats interesting. There is also a room with a handful of perfume elements, but I think everyone already knows what lavender and sandalwood and patchouli smell like. While the rooms are beautiful and ornate, there is only a brief explanation card for each room, so if you're curious about specific items you won't find the information. It seemed like the info cards emphasized how rare and special everything was, without further explanation. For example, there was a display of antique perfuming (?) equipment, but the only information was that it's a rare, extensive, private collection. Nothing about the equipment itself. I would say this is less of a museum and more of a preserved home with a few displays. It was much, much smaller than the size of the building suggests. I would recommend skipping this one unless you have a museum pass.
  • Rude and grumpy staff, rather unimpressive collection and the costume exhibits were closed, yet the horrible woman who sold the tickets to us neglected to tell us that and then refused to refund us once we’d been around the small, unimpressive part that was open. Avoid this place like the plague, don’t waste your money.
  • Very nice museum if you want to see a palazzo from the inside. There is exhibition devoted to perfume history inside, some things you can even smell
  • Not a huge space but well planned for exhibitions and access. The perfume focus in the main floor is extensive and quite encompassing. Very creative wedge of galleries presented a quirky view of collection of objects related to the perfume barons. Good stop in central Venice and easily accessible from San Stae vaporetto dock.
  • Museum for perfume lover. History, how it’s made, raw material and glass bottles.
