This is something of a hidden gem, looking quite inconspicuous. As you enter the rooms, however, it is a delightful surprise. The rooms of the grand house are much as they would have been in the 17th and 18th centuries, all red plush and chandeliers, and they have a lived-in air compared to the marble palazzi. This casa specializes in the history and making of perfume, and the display of fine silk embroidered fabrics. There are mannequins dressed in gorgeous suits/waistcoats and gowns, and a whole room full of silk embroidered waistcoats. You can also see other decorative original fabrics on display.
The perfume bottle exhibit is absolutely wonderful, everything from ornate glass and precious metals to bottles in the shape of cars, animals or buildings. Even better I thought they have all the basic ingredients - the four groups of 'notes' - in stoppered flasks and you can sniff them all/read about them. Beautiful! Also there are bowls of spices, herbs and aromatics to sniff and all the instruments used in making perfume to look at. If you then wish, there is a perfume range you can buy downstairs,

This was like a different world to the crammed and mobbed Venice outside, and we loved it. Do go here and leave the 20th century behind. What I liked too is there are loads of places to sit comfortably, even a little salon with magazines to leaf through. You also get given a magazine free full of ads for modern day perfumes and make-up!

It is not the most exciting museum, but if you have the City Pass to Venice (VeneziaUnica) it is free of charge. At the moment there is an exhibition on perfumes and flacons besides some of the usual dresses

This shows the life of nobility in Venice in very well. No religious artifacts and art work, but really practical stuff that is worth viewing. A large section is all anout the perfiume industry in Venice which is really interseting.

We were taking a stroll when we came across Palazzo Mocenigo. We had a quick look, but decided against going inside for a visit, not our cup of tea....
