  • Firstly, the museum opens at 1030 and not 1000 as indicated on TripAdvisor. It is definitely worth visiting at the beginning of our trip to the island as it sets the present day scene by looking back ...  more »
  • 14 the ticket for what we see, I found it average. It is true that the maintenance of this building and the staff are to be taken into account. Personally I enjoyed the visit of the building more than the exhibits... This museum is really not a priority in my opinion.

  • 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.
