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

We visited here on our last morning in Venice as it was right beside our hotel and it was convenient. Very glad we did. The English audio guide was excellent and one of the simplest we've ever used. Lovely clear explanations and excellent displays. We...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

I didn't expect much but I enjoyed my time here. There are some interesting things on display and the entry fee is reasonable. The place was a little difficult to find. Be aware that there is no English language text for any of the exhibits....More

Though not the largest museum, there is enough packed into this place to keep you busy for an hour or so. Some very cool little exhibits on display

This museum is not large, but it is very well organized and the things you see are just amazing. For sure, I recommend this for kids, especially the dinosaur area which is really fantastic. In my opinion 2 hours are enough if you do not...More

The museum was interesting and very well presented. Kids would definitely enjoy it (there were a few school trips and the kids seemed to be having a great time and were really engaged), but grown ups would enjoy it too.

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
