The story of one man’s passion and drive in restoring a medieval building and then filling it with personally chosen treasures. These included exquisite examples of fine art, sculpture, bronzes, ceramics, silverware, tapestries... A wonderful chance to see one of the very best palaces on the Grand Canal along with its eclectic art collection - a real highlight of our... More

I specifically wanted to see the floor at water level of this museum. It did not disappoint. Wonderful views from the upper floors and then to stumble upon the Jewish treasures once hidden, now found and restored, was a wonderful unexpected treat. I was moved by the experience. Our visit was special to me.

There's a very interesting mix of classic and modern art, the obligatory religious art and the rediscovered Jewish treasures hidden in the Ghetto before WWII. Such a lovely building too with impressive views of the Grand Canal.

We appreciated being able to see this lovely structure. We enjoyed the religious art from Franchetti's collection. We weren't as excited with the pieces that had been added to fill up some of the upper floors. For us the modern art was a miss. The special Jewish Ghetto collection was interesting. Expensive for what it is.

This museum was completely empty when we visited it and we figured out why as we were looking around. Its not very interesting. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy a good museum but this one wasn't worth the 6 euro per person entry fee. There is a neat view of the channel from the upper floors but other than that... More

Sorry, I was not very impressed with the Galleria. It was ok, although the tapestries were pretty incredible, I didn't find that a visit to this Galleria was worth the time and money. Maybe if you are "looking" for something to do, but I wouldn't put it on any list of "must see" places.

I visited the Galleria Franchetti a couple of weeks ago and I was most impressed by the collection of Hispano Moresque pottery and Venetian ceramics. Most of the pieces belong to the former collection of Prof. Luigi Conton, a passionate scholar and collector. The history of Italian ceramics and their tribute to Hispano Moresque pottery owes a lot to his... More
