The Venice Natural History Musium is a little eccentric, from the selection hunters trophies (complete with stern photo of the hunter) to the plasticised autopsies in process its not always for the squeemish. We spent about an hour and a half viewing the musium (its set up as one long guided tour) and definatly enjoyed it. Although not as big as natural history musiums in larger cities it definatly had an eccentric charm about it and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a break from the Renesaunce for an hour or two.
Word of warning: the musium is almost entierly in itallian but there are one or two bilingual exhibits indicating this will change in the future, if you have an Itallian speaker in your group like we did, you'll get a lot more out of the musium.
