Really impressive. Beautifully displayed. Interesting. Amazed at the amount of displayed items in a not so big space. All information only in Italian but easy to follow. Something different than the normal sightseeing but we'll worth a visit.

The design and layout of this museum is brilliant. The exhibits are very well displayed and provide unflagging interest to a visitor. Children would be captivated by this place and it would also be educational for them too. My only criticism is that the reception...More

This museum was a welcome break from the madness of St Marks etc.This quieter side of the Rio Grande rewards exploration of the narrow passages. A pleasant half hour in this small museum is reccommended

OK, this place cannot even begin to compare to what we get here in London for free, yet I appreciated the place for giving me an insight into the Venician mind. This was the first place we visited in Venice and only stopped because it...More

Not the largest natural history museum, but, full of interesting exhibits as it winds up and down through a historic building. A lot of the exhibits do not have English descriptions, but, in general these are not required. There is a large display of stuffed,...More

My partner and I love a museum! We have been to the Natural history museum in the UK, NY and Milan. When we decided to go here I thought it might be a bit of a flop like Milan's but I was completely wrong. We...More

Santa Croce
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district)
when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring
cars and buses close to the center of Venice.
Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking
Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes
with energy from travelers and students. Historic
palaces and former industrial buildings house some
departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture

Take vaporetto to San Stae station. Walk straight forward from the stop then turn right when just past Palazzo Mocinego. After crossing two rivers turn right again down Salita Fontego. It takes only 5 minutes to walk there... More
