  • A great Museum in every sense of the term: a lot of different rooms on a huge surface, the paintings of high quality, and sculptures in very good condition, little flat, I expected to see more works by Veronese.

  • I really enjoyed this museum in Venice, more than the Dodge's palace which is obviously the more popular attraction. The gallery contains a nice collection of venetian art ( especially religious inspired) dating from 1300-1600. The audio guide was ok, but i felt I could have went without too. The true surprise was finding a Hieronymus Bosch exhibited ( as part of a temporary exhibit?), that really made my day. I can totally recommend visiting it, if you have to choose between this and the Dodge's palace I'd choose this.
  • We visited during the renovation so one of the rooms we wanted to visit was closed to the public. Make sure to visit their website as they have a document that lists the paintings available for viewing. There are guides in some rooms so you can learn more about the art that are displayed and even the rooms themselves. It was interesting to know that the Vitruvian man is in the archive of this museum and only displayed every 5 years.
