The visit to the Glass museum was lovely. The staff were amazing. Due to my husband being a wheel chair user they wouldn't take any entrance money from me and the lockers for bags were free too. A member of staff took us to the lift and told us where to go. The story of Murano glass from Roman times... More

10 Euro to enter and it is quite a boring museum. Lots of glass but little that was amazing. No sense of a historic timeline. A couple of glass blowing videos but no commentary. Good toilets. In and out in 15 mins.

Lovely Museum housed in an interesting building alongside the canal, with good views. If you want to learn about the history of Murano glass from its early days right through to the present this Museum has exhibits to cover it all. A very pleasant way to spend an hour or so.

Had hoped for the guided tour as advertised on the posters around town. They have been discontinued however the film shown in pleasant and comfortable surroundings seemed to tell us a great deal about the different types of glass manufacture The 16th and 17thC glassware should not be missed. A superb collection of glass up until 2016. Do nit miss... More

I was expecting much more from this museum - it feels quite empty and all you would see is just a display of glass without much supporting info and nothing i would really call a masterpiece apart from the chandeliers and miniature glass artwork. However you can see pretty much all of this in multiple glass shops around Murano, so... More

Murano is known as the glass-making capital of Italy and they have a multitude of wonderful glass works throughout the island and in shops, restaurants, etc. If you really want to view all of the different glass sculptures, however, then head on over to the museum, where you'll truly see all that can be made. The museum is not super... More

Once entered, we are spellbound by the beauty and the creativity of the beautiful minds. There is so much to explore. An exceptional place to visit. However, not a place for kids.

This museum explains everthing about glas making in a very understandable way. You can easily see and perceive, why and where there is a difference between the chinese "Murano" glas you can find in a lot of stores in Venice and the original designs from Murano. It is astonishing how and how long the glas makers of Murana were fighting... More

Beautifully & simply laid out, a succinct & interesting journey through glass across the ages - start upstairs after viewing the 'VT' on the ground floor, don't forget outside.

While visiting Murano, famous for its glass work, we decided to stop at the glass museum at Murano. It has a wonderful collection of glass work that pretty much walks you through glass works from various years progressively and one gets to see how the glass work has evolved over time. Enjoyed the visit!
