  • View-costume Museum and fabrics in the history of the Republic of Venice. Tapestries, brocades, tapestries and clothing. Interesting the documentation centre and the deposits can be visited by reservation. The recent history of perfume completes this journey into the past. And all exhibited in a historic building that on this occasion is a pleasure to visit.

  • This patrician who became Museum after the Countess Mocenigo, at his death, he donated to the city of Venice, offers an impressive collection of costumes and way of life of the ruling class of the Serenissima, besides valuable furnishings. Well worth a visit.

  • The Museum is housed in a historic building that contains original frescoes and antique furniture: already this makes itself the visit appealing. The costumes are rather few but valuable, especially the section of male sottomarsine. Smallish but especially the section dedicated to perfumes. Only downside: the Museum is small price to lower!

  • Nice museum with focus on Venetian costumes and perfume making. If nearby you may want to visit.
  • This museum gives a good sense of the interior of a Venetian palazzo in the 18th century. There was furniture, period glass and some glorious chandeliers on display. There was also space devoted to the perfume industry in Venice during its heyday as a merchant powerhouse. There were examples of raw ingredients, perfume making equipment, trade routes for sourcing ingredients and a wonderful collection of perfume bottles spanning thousands of years. I would have liked to see more examples of historical textiles and costumes. There are a number of mannequins in period costume and a great collection of 18th century vests but these just left me wanting more. I had hoped for historic Carnival masks and clothing. The museum was quiet, easily reached from the S. Stae vaporetto stop and also made it convenient to visit San Stae cathedral.
  • Fun Palazzo with an interesting museum about the perfume industry of Venezia. Quiet and pleasant. Takes about 40-50 minutes to see it all.
  • Fashion and Parfum, after visiting this museum I was much more stylish.
  • Great little museum to visit if you want to see how the Venetian nobility lived in their prime. From perfume to fashion, you'll understand how the high Venetians functioned everyday. Definitely recommended, even if it is a little hard to locate.
