Nice museum!

We did not plan to visit this Museum, but by walking on the streets, we saw it and decided to give it a try. So many things to see and to learn! 5*!

As other reviews have said - this is an old church and is beautiful in that sense. It also has the added bonus of housing a museum of musical instruments with a small shop and ticket office. The background of Vivaldi in such a setting is divine. It is also possible to sit in the small square outside to have... More

This former church is now a small museum displaying musical, mostly string, instruments crafted over the past three hundred years. We found it quite by accident while heading to the Accademia bridge. With baroque music playing softly in the background it provided a nice change of scenery and a fascinating hour long experience.

I wandered in while passing by, looking for something else. As a string player and music aficionado, I was delighted to see the collection of historic string instruments on display. Entry was gratis. Very helpful and pleasant staff. The building is beautiful too!

Do stop by and enjoy a church in a different way. The history of string instruments and even a display of how they were made.

So, as per title, there was free entrance. There are music instruments, that are very old, also a workshop set to look at through window, to see, how the place where these instruments were made looked like. By the entrance there is a shop, where one can buy music CDs, etc. Worth popping in. Well we did.

An old church housing a wonderful collection of instruments dating from the 1500s. Mainly string instruments including violins,violas,cellos,lutes and mandolins. Some beautifully decorated old pianos too. Free admission.

We found this museum by chance and popped in (as there is no charge). Very helpful staff sold us tickets for a Vivaldi concert that night (excellent!). Lots of old instruments beautifully displayed so we were glad we went in.

If you studied classical music, spend 15-30 minutes in this free museum. They had a lot of unique instruments as old as from the 1500s that I've never seen or heard of. Very cool and a great time filler.

This place smells of music, looks of music and sounds of music, I loved it and leant a thing or two. Not the place for littlies buit that can be hard of on hiliday but it does require P&Q to absorb such history!

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
