Strolled into this church and found very interesting exhibits of all wood sting instruments. Fascinating to see displays how they are made. Some were very old but the shape the same as todays modern instruments. i think lovers of classical music will really appreciate this...More

There was no charge for us to walk in and view the beautiful musical instruments on display. We did not attend any events there but would be a lovely venue.

This is a nice little museum for a quick look at period musical instruments.There was a good collection of instruments, mostly the whole range of string instruments. Entrance is free by the way.

Admission to the museum is free. Once again it is a small jewel in the crown of Venice but for a music lover a peaceful place to visit with an interesting selection of exhibits. A beautiful Baroque church too.

Even though it isn't big, they have a pretty wide collection and even a place where they demonstrate how string instruments are made. Also, it is free. I definitely recommend it!

This museum/church came our way and we went in. It is free to go in, doesn’t take too much time and it is interesting to see the string instruments as well as the ancient instruments. There is also a museum shop inside.

This is a free attraction based in an old church. Attractive interior with an interesting array of violins and other old instruments. Small shop selling various music styles from classical to jazz. Makes for a nice browse.
