Came across this museum while walking from Accademia to San Marco. Attracted by the free entry of course, we found a sizeable collection of stringed and woodwind instruments including resonator violins which I've only seen in one other, tiny museum in Norway specialising in violins....More

We enjoyed seeing all of the instruments and how they are constructed. Great for children. Small. Free.

One of the few free museums in Venice this place has really old pianos and violins that are simply wonderful to gaze at. I wonder if they still produce music though. You can buy musical performance tickets from here.
