  • Of course, it depends on the time that you have available, and the degree of familiarity with the most "important". Anyway, in my judgment, this Palace/Museum is one of those wrongly classified as "minor" attractions: you won't find crowds of visitors, and that's good. You will have the opportunity to experience a piece of history of an important patrician family from the past. It has an outstanding collection of costumes, but even more so of perfume, rare in its kind.

  • 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.
