    Visited with my partner on a short stay in Venice. This is definitely worth a visit. It has some stunning paintings.

    We didn’t have to queue for long & there was no time limit for your visit.

    This museum is fun, and it's really cool that you can actually touch and play with the various contraptions that Da Vinci came up with. My only complaint (if we can call it that) is that it seems a bit small and put together in a bit of a hurry. Otherwise, a fun experience!

    I highly recommend to visit this treasure trove. The action hero’s and dolls that are in there will bring back memories of tv shows and movies from the that everyone would recognize with nostalgia(1930s onward). The owner takes pride in this amazing collection and I do plan to come back for another visit! It’s worth a look even if this is not your thing.

    The museum is a really special place. Beautiful building, inspiring music atmosphere, and beautiful instruments. If you like music I totally recommended, and you should go for the classic music concerts where the musicians play master pieces (such as the Vivaldi's ones), with the exposed instruments. Giovanna, the women, who is in the museum, is really nice and kind. She has a really contagious music inspiration, special energy, and she also can gives you useful information about the museum and concerts.

    Small musuem in the Venice ghetto which traces the history of the Jewish community in Venice. Ends with a exhibit of the holocaust impact on the Jewish community in Venice. Very moving.
    The historical are exhibits are good and provides a history that puts Jewish life in Venice in perspective from its beginnings to the present time.
    Worth a visit. Spend an hour.

    Located in the St. Mark's swuare. I would suggest a visit to this museum if you are interested interested in historical monuments, paintings etc. We went there early and waited for 10 minutes but some people say that the waiting time is 45 minutes, I wouldn't be happy to wait for 45 minutes.

    A remarkable series of paintings by Carpaccio and Dalmatian painters. Just as importantly, the Scuola represents a glimpse into the history and importance of Venetian fraternities and associations. Friendly and knowledgeable custodian. The place is listed on the Chorus ticket but charges an extra few euros, which was a surprise; similar experiences in a few other churches (eg, deli Frari), clearly Chorus does not have it all together. A must visit for art lovers.

    I am not sure we would pay to see the Scuola, but we visited as part of an opera evening. Good singers, and entertaining ‘show’, we enjoyed it. Not too much, for those who do not know opera, and a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

    Great exhibition! Tells of the history of torture, justice and execution in Venice. It’s the best historial museum in Venice. Comes with detailed descriptions through an audio device. Even shows a lot of the torture devices used from 1200 up till the renaissance.

    Out of the three institutions accessed through the Museo Correr entrance this was the most interesting for me, as a graduate in Roman imperial history.

    I was particularly wowed by the collection of coins from the Roman era and even before then, back to the earliest years of the Republic. Another highlight was the collection of Roman funerary sculptures.

    On the downside the information boards, which seem to have been intended to be in both Italian and English, often omitted the English version. But, to be fair, it is an Italian museum!

    So thumbs up, albeit with some concerns re interpretation for international visitors.

    Spent about 45 mins . Interesting to view models of Leonardos ideas. Some are working models which you can try.
    Slightly aloof attendant not particularly welcoming

    You must book at least a week in advance. Tours required and offered in many languages. It feels a bit dusty and musty, but is great for Wagnerites, though none of the furnishings were Wagner's. He died here, in his modest 18/room rented flat.

    This is one of the churches where Vivaldi's students performed. They originally lived in the building next door, which is now a hotel. In addition to the beautiful church, there is a small, but fascinating, museum that has artifacts from earlier centuries that show how children were left at the orphanage. Most interesting for me was the display of musical instruments from past centuries. It is interesting to climb the stairs and see where the performers played and sang, and to examine the church's organ.

    In the museum there is also a wonderful painting, called "Dinner at the House of Simeon the Pharisee." The painter is from Brescia. He is usually referred to as Moretto da Brescia.

    There are also performances held at the church in the evening. I attended one and it was very well done. The music was all Vivaldi.
