  • If you are a fan of Da Vinci you must visit this gallery NOW! The "Vetruvian " man is on display, I believe it has not been on display anywhere in the world for many years, it is worth visiting Venice...  more »
  • I had been to Venice for the first time since 2002, and this was my fourth visit, but I have never been to this museum. This time, I finally visited. The famous "Witruvius Human body Chart" of Da Vinci is held, but it is not always exhibited. But this time, I was able to see it. Although I have seen so badly in photographs, the real thing is that I was impressed by the minutely strokes and the perfect drawings. The rest of the exhibits are mainly the works of the Venetian age, but I strongly felt the importance of the historical material to know the state of the city at that time, in addition to the religious significance of the works depicting the Venetian landscape of the old age.

  • 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.
