The area
Address
Neighbourhood: San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.

The museum is a really special place. Beautiful building, inspiring music atmosphere, and beautiful instruments. If you like music I totally recommended, and you should go for the classic music concerts where the musicians play master pieces (such as the Vivaldi's ones), with the exposed instruments. Giovanna, the women, who is in the museum, is really nice and kind. She has a really contagious music inspiration, special energy, and she also can gives you useful information about the museum and concerts.

On arrival in Venice we discovered that our hotel was just five minutes' walk from the deconsecrated San Maurizio Church, in the San Marco district not far from The Academia Bridge. This building now houses the permanent Artemio Versari collection of stringed instruments, illustrating the history, diversity and construction of violins, 'cellos, etc - as well as some very strange-looking instruments! The displays are all on one floor, and there are plenty of English language descriptions. Entry is free, unless you want the audio guide or a private tour.

There is also a small museum shop selling a variety of mostly music-related items, including several CDs of baroque music played by the wonderful Interpreti Veneziani ensemble, who I understand are responsible for curating the museum (you can buy tickets for their concerts here). The museum is quite small, but will certainly be of interest to anyone who plays a stringed instrument or is a regular concert-goer. The lady at the reception desk, Giovanna, gave us a warm welcome and was very helpful in answering all our questions!

TripAdvisor lists this as temporarily closed, but it was open in October 2021 when we visited. We stumbled upon it while walking to the Accademia bridge and when we saw it was free we knew we had to pop in! We only spent about 20 minutes here since we didn't have much time to spare, but if you plan for it, you could easily spend an hour. There is a ton of information and history on Vivaldi and a lot of old instruments and sheet music which was cool to look at. The church itself is very beautiful too. Definitely recommend stopping by!

This small museum displays antique musical instruments of Antonio Vivaldi's era. It was easy to go in and look at them while strolling to and from the Accademia bridge.

In this deconsecrated church of Saint Maurizio you can see an exhibition dedicated to one of the artistic demonstrations that highlighted the Italian culture: the liuteria ( the making of musical instruments)
Venice has always been, since the Middle Ages, the ideal place for music.

Strolled into this church and found very interesting exhibits of all wood sting instruments. Fascinating to see displays how they are made. Some were very old but the shape the same as todays modern instruments. i think lovers of classical music will really appreciate this display.

There was no charge for us to walk in and view the beautiful musical instruments on display. We did not attend any events there but would be a lovely venue.

This is a nice little museum for a quick look at period musical instruments.There was a good collection of instruments, mostly the whole range of string instruments. Entrance is free by the way.

Admission to the museum is free. Once again it is a small jewel in the crown of Venice but for a music lover a peaceful place to visit with an interesting selection of exhibits. A beautiful Baroque church too.

Even though it isn't big, they have a pretty wide collection and even a place where they demonstrate how string instruments are made. Also, it is free. I definitely recommend it!
