If you are thinking of going to visit Murano and its glass-making sights, be very wary of anyone offering you a "FREE" Vaporetto ride there. There is NO such thing as "a free lunch"; yes, you'll get taken to Murano but you will be herded...More

One of our party is very interested in glass production so we visited the newly reopened museum. We felt that the entrance fee was high. There are some lovely displays of glass. However, some of the cabinets had no labels so you had no idea...More

We saw the Compagnia in the Murano Glass Museum. Their costumes and appearance among the crystal and glassware, inspired us . Their appearance made our visit fun. The chandelier, and crystal reminded me of my heritage an experience

This is great if you want to understand how the famous Murano glass is made and see the trends through the centuries. They have a very informative film and several rooms of everything from chandeliers to vases, glass art, jewelry etc.

This museum is part of the Venezia Unica Tourist Pass, so definitely worth a visit. There was a special exhibit they were setting up for Venice Glass Week, but you could see some of it from above. I really enjoyed seeing all the different items...More

This place should be free to show history of Venetian glass making. Poor collection! 13 Euro is overpriced. Not worth to pay

Great place to start before purchasing glass so you know how the style you want to buy is made. Plus they have lots of old and new masters’ pieces on display to admire.
