This is a wonderful museum. If you're interested in what an 18th century Venetian palace looked like, costumes and / or perfume then this is the place for you. Quiet, understated with friendly and helpful staff I loved this museum. It's been beautifully restored and...More

We visited this palace the day after we were at Basilica San Marco. It was such a relief to be in a place that was less crowded with tourists. In fact, the day we were there was very quiet. There was not any rush to...More

An interesting museum of Venice in the 18th century with costumes, furniture, décor, paintings and of course the collection of perfume bottles and ingredients. It is on the list of the museum pass. It was fairly quiet when I went (October) and my Airbnb host...More

Very nicely done museum, included in the Venice Museum pass. The museum itself was quite empty, maybe because we went just before closing. All the information is provided in English, German and French. They've got a great couple rooms on perfume and perfume collections, including...More

The Museum is fairly small but does an excellent job of displaying and explaining the history of fabric and perfume in the Venetian culture. Most of the displays had English writing and the video also came round to an English version. Wonderful to see a...More

The Palazzo Mocenigo is a beautiful palazzo, but the museum collection is nothing special. In particular many of the explanations of the perfume making process are in Italian, so it is difficult for English speakers to appreciate. Also the fashion collection was small. While there...More

Interesting museum housed within a traditional Palazzo. The museum holds exhibits on fashion and a perfume workshop and history of perfumery including exhibits. Interesting display of embroidered waistcoats from the 17th and 18th century. The content of the museum is slightly disappointing if your main...More

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

Hi Emma, you have to pay 8€ each adult and 5.50€ for children, perhaps you can go in cheaper with an Venice City pass.
