  • What a lovely museum - and a powerful experience. Touring the home of such a trailblazer for women’s rights was truly life-changing. Get tickets ahead of time, or come within an hour of closing. The cafe is lovely, the service was blah, but the food was very good. Take time to listen to the scheduled talks. The tour guides are students, quite charming and knowledgeable. On the terrace, the soft scent of jasmine is the backdrop for one of the best views of the canals in the city. Highly recommend.
  • Another great experience that a trip to Venice has to offer. ADA accessible, well laid out with great documentation. Plan to spend some time to enjoy all of the collection. Online ticketing. There is a small Cafe. There is an audio tour available. There different exhibits that travel through the gallery. Enjoy.
