Even though the space is rather limited in this historic jewel, the number of museums as well as the richness of their collections is very surprising. Not only are the museums with historical theme so numerous and with rich collections, but there are also museums dedicated to contemporary art. Therefore, visitors will be able to learn about the wealthy period of Venetian commerce, expansions and falls, but also to learn about contemporary art where some visitors will admire the modern art, while others will wonder if this is really art. On this page you will find a full list of museums in the city of Venice.
This art gallery is located in one of the historically most important palaces in Venice. The trouble is that the main facade is facing the Gran Canal and stays hidden for most tourists that tend to visit the city on foot. Nevertheless, this art gallery is worth visiting for those interested in the Venetian art, architecture and history.
This beautiful building is located just next to the beautiful Basilica of Saint John and Paul. Its façade is simply an architectural masterpiece that hides an entrance to a modern hospital. However, on the first floor of the building there are still two rooms that belonged to this great school and that are certainly worth visiting.
The Archeological museum in Venice is one of the museums that belong to the group of San Mark Square Museums. It is connected to the Museum Correr and it seems as an integral part of it. Even though the collection consists of some of the very old and important artifacts, to some tourists it may seem a bit small especially in comparison to certain other archeological museums, for example in Rome.
This is yet another attraction of San Marko Square Museums. Visitors will be able to see two rooms of the library that once hosted precious manuscripts and that were later added to the new palace envisioned for the King of Italy.
