A patrician residence at San Stae, Palazzo Mocenigo houses valuable 18th century artworks and is also home to the Study Centre for the History of Textiles and Costumes. A fine selection of rare textiles and costumes of particular importance are displayed. The collection is laid out with a significant importance given to garments and accessories. Mainly of Venetian origin, the works are often embellished with lace and embroidery, skills of several artisans who made such a contribution to that refined luxury and elegance for which the Venetians of those days were famous for.

nice opportunity to watch inside

The Museo Palazzo Mocenigo offers you a nice opportunity to see a Venetian palace from the inside. I went because it was included in the museum pass and was not disappointed.

This is a very pleasant museum, right off the San Stae vaporetto stop. It is far from the maddening crowds of Venice. The rooms show the Mocenigo family house with displays of clothing worn in the 18th century. It also has a perfume collection. We bought our museum pass here without any lines. It gives entrance to 11 city museums.... More

Short visit, took us about half an hour, very close to the vaporetto stop. If you already have the Museum Pass make sure to go there, but do not worry if you can't make it, as it's nice, but not a must

Great little show on perfumes, but what I loved were the period clothes. I could live in the room with the men's vests. Why is there no place in Venice that reproduces these?! I got the 24 euro museum pass, a real bargain.

Maybe we expected more in terms of costume displays but the visit was short and somewhat disappointing as the ground floor was not accessible and they were in the middle of setting up displays in the main room on the first floor at the head of the stairs.Perfume displays interesting and as you would expect in a Venetian Palazzo some...

We were a little disappointed because it seemed as if less was on display due to renovations. We expected to see lots costumes and dress of the period and information about that. And maybe the English translation cards didn't have as much detailed information? We did enjoy the perfume section.

This old palace shows a good selection of rooms, along with displays of Venetian clothing and (currently) a collection of modern fabric design and a small interactive display on perfumes. A really interesting museum, where a small thing like the history of the Venetian waistcoat can be found. Part of the Venice Museo ticket that gets you in to a... More

Wow. Just got back from Venice and visited the Mocenigo museum for the first time. It is not my favourite museum, but what a surprise I had when I climbed the stairs. I walked into a large room, with magnificent proportions, with a collection of modern textiles that are simply stunning and unusual. It was as if music was suddenly... More

We have just just returned from a short break in Venice, where the high point proved to be HKF's exhibit at the Palazzo, the existence of which does not appear on the official website. Helene's fabrics have been part of the fabric of Venice for over 30 years, and this collection reveals an artist at the top of her game.... More

Being a fashionista, this museum is right up my alley. The textiles used in the garments are a history of the industry in Europe...simply grand! The architecture is worth the trip even if one is not into historical costumes. The interactive perfume room is contemporary scent at it's best...and the perfume can be purchased. The gift shop is also a... More

Staying in San Polo

Neighborhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighborhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
