Museo del Vetro Reviews
A nice little museum that contains the full history of glass from ancient times. Really enjoyed seeing both the old Murano glass and some of the more recent examples, which are really impressive... more »
Museo del Vetro, or Glass Museum, is located on Murano Island and is part of Venice Civic Museums – for this reason, the Museum could be included on Venezia Unica City Pass, which we did. The Museum.... more »
I was fairly excited to see this as used to work with glass professionally in the past. After the visit, my conclusion is that it is not worth it, unless you are museum enthusiast. My wife and I have visited in Aug. '19 and including boat ride from Venice and entry fee (€14 x 2) we have spent almost €60 for this fairly boring experience. It is mostly collection of finished glass products that is easily overshadowed by what's on the offer in numerous glass shops on the island.
Completely not worth the visit unless you get a discount or get to go free. The museum is small and only has 10 show rooms with glass products, which you can spend maybe half an hour in if you move slowly. The displays don’t explain the history particularly well. Spend your €14 on glass souvenirs, masks, or food, but don’t spend it here.
