Well worth seeking out this gem of an art museum, if nothing else for its beautiful courtyard. When we visited, we loved all three current exhibits, which were modern - a good respite from all the Renaissance art. We also ate in the cafe, which was delicious, and shopped in the museum shop, which had an excellent selection of items.... More

The first time I visited Querini Stampalia was because my husband wanted to see Scarpa's architecture. We now visit every time we're in Venice as it happens to have a great cafe with a shaded outdoor area just next to the garden. The menu is limited but always tasty and it is excellent value for money. No extra charges! Just... More

this is a great attraction. We had heard of it through an Architectural book. Great bookshop as well as modern art exhibits. Also visit the Olivetti showroom designed by same architect who started the foundation (Scala I think)

It was set up to help the working man become educated, hence why it is open in the evening until 11.00 every day except Monday when it is closed. There are interesting paintings by Bella of Venetian life in 17/18th centuries. Excellent examples of the work of the artisan/self taught architect Carlo Scarpa, see the garden. Great coffee shop. Probably... More

Not only is this a museum showing how a phenominaly rich family lived in Venice hundreds of years ago, it also is a historical showcase for Venetian art and history in general. In addition to the museum there also is a cafe and a library with 350,000 volumes from the 1400's to the 1900's.You can see musical instruments, family portraits,... More

We stopped here on our walk to San Marco from our B&B located in San Croce. A friend had recommended it and she was right. Downstairs a lovely museum with a beautiful Bellini. We were in off season and had the museum to ourselves and were able to sit - alone - with the painting and just savor it. Upstairs... More

When we entered we thought that this was going to be an exhibition space and the gift shop is full of design classics and modern gifts. We then entered an industrial style lift and on the first floor it opened up into a lobby with modern metal fire doors.....and then..on opening the door you enter a Venetian apartments with original...

The museum was very expensive for what you got and the audio guide was a tad over produced. Information, rather than a theatrical production would have been quite enough! However, it did manage to bring alive the life in the Venice of former years.

This museum is a little hard to find but well worth the effort. From the north side of San Marco (to the left as you face the front of the cathedral with the Campanile on your right), you need to follow the yellow signs for Fondazione Querini Stampalia, and after about 10 minutes crossing bridges and going down quiet little...
