  • Perhaps a Palace a little neglected by the obligatory destinations of Venice that is absolutely worth a visit. Ours was linked to the exhibition of Brigitte Niedermair, photographs inserted in the context of the ancient halls and in place of Secenteschi paintings, but inside we appreciated, helped by the very prepared and helpful staff, the history of perfume in general and in the Venetian costumes in particular. To be marked on the agenda!

  • Cute. The location is impressive (like almost everything in Venice) and interesting exhibition of costumes and perfumes. But very little.

  • Apart from a few perfumes to smell, there is very little to see or to learn. There were litteraly no costumes (except 2-3 without descriptions) or fabrics. The palace itself was the only thing worth seeing. Plus, the special exhibit of Brigitte Something -- for which they compulsorily charge extra -- was pure merda.
  • One of the best museums I have ever been.
  • We really enjoyed seeing the history of parfum making. Staff was very friendly in directing us around. It is not a big museum but if you have the museum pass it is worth to visit. There are not so many costumes on display but there was a nice room with overcoats. The films explaining the parfum history were very informative.
  • Small but informative museum. Situated in the "piano nobile", you can explore the different rooms and salons with lots of the original furniture and paintings. The history comes alive with puppets wearing historical costumes. In every room you find informations in Italian, French and English, as well as benches or chairs in many of the rooms, so that you can rest and enjoy the athmosphere. Large collection of vests with all kinds of embroidery. Very interesting was the part about the history of perfume with a very informative short film (also in English) and lots of samples to smell and compare. We went one hour before closing and had plenty of time, only the museum shop was already closed. Strong recomendation for kids, even our teenagers loved it! Very short walk from Vaporetto San Stae.
  • It was nice, especially the perfume section.
