About
The exhibition Creature di Gomma - Venice Vintage Toys, was born from an idea of the Venetian collector Fabrizio Fontanella, matured over time and resulted in 2018 in a project that makes its private collection available to the public. It is an impressive collection, one of the most important in the world, of vintage puppets and toys from the sixties, seventies and eighties, the result of a passion that has lasted for thirty years. Today it counts more than 5.000 pieces. It is a Cultural Association and the entrance card, valid till the end of the year, is of 5 euro per person.

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.

A wonderful museum with more than 6000 vintage toys collected over many years by finder Fabruzip Fontanella. It is full of nostalgia and memories of childhood . It is well presented with helpful staff on hand to answer questions. Highly recommended - a must go to venue for all visitors to the city. It is just off Campo San Stin a short walk from the railway station or the San Toma bus stop.

20eu (2 adults and 2 kids) to look at a random collection of old toys. Small place, takes 3 minutes to look around. He promised the kids toys as part of their tickets and gave them plain looking fridge magnets. A total rip off.

Venice…. the most incredible and magic city in the world, where besides the magnificent San Marco and Rialto bridge, you’ll find a multitude of hidden, secret and unique spots you won’t find anywhere else in the world, if you have the patience to treasure hunt.
Creature di Gomma is one of those… An exposition of vintage toys from over half a century timeline, and each of them will bring back a long lost memory.
But what will make your visit special is Fabrizio and Beatrice’s passion.. they will take you through the visit, and tell the unique story of each piece: where they found it, who owned it, the connection with the movie or the cartoon, how they were manufactured, ….
When you fall in love with Venice, you will always want to find new special spots, this should be on top of that list..

So much fun to see our childhood cartoon heroes. Thank you so much for the personal tour and background stories. Great independent museum that everyone visiting Venice should pay a visite to. The walk of the beated path is a bonus.
