  • Staff was not super nice at the entrance, however they gave us a separate ticket for the next day to the Doge's Palace which was certainly helpful. There was practically no line, we visited in on a Saturday afternoon. To be honest, I don't think it worth the price, 26 euros are too much even if it contains the Doge's Palace as well. There was a contemporary art exhibition in some parts of the museum, which looked amazing in the fancy old rooms. I didn't like that they don't have enough places to sit down and rest during the visit. There are lot of benches where people are not allowed to sit, even though the benches themselves not always look "old and super nice". Please solve this issue regarding sitting, either let people sit on old benches and chairs, or provide a new set of furniture in all of the rooms. For me personally it was fine, but a lot of older people would like to sit down and take a rest in some of the rooms.
  • 2022 July: There is virtually no information here about Venetian culture or history. A complete and total waste of time unless your idea of a museum is wander through an endless number of rooms filled with objects without contextual, historical or cultural information that also has jarring modern art airdropped among old coins and statues. A remarkable museum- it is both a curatorial morass and a horrifying pastiche. It's notable that they seemed to place the jarring, ugly modern works into the rooms with Greek, Roman and other objects and didn't place those misfit objects into the rooms with their own Venetian painters, madonnas and endless palace rooms which would have been ideal settings for the newer art. Don't waste even 10 minutes of your life here.
