The Palladio Museum is housed in the Palazzo Barbarano, of Palladio's design. It has exhibits about Palladio's work as well as more general architectural topics. Although we are not architecture experts, we had a wonderful time.

This will be of interest to fans of Palladio as well as novices to his work who just want to learn the basics of his 'grand designs'. The models around the different rooms really brought to life his achievements. A must see part of the city tour

Not a bad museum, but it lacks something. In fact the entire way Vicenza presents the history of Palladio lacks something. There are no Palladio walks (showing you the different buildings), the city tourist maps are inaccurate. The museum is in a Palladio Villa - which is exciting in itself - and some of the models are very impressive - but it could be so much more.

We were visiting Vicenza specifically to see Palladian villas, so this was a great addition to our trip. It is a small museum in one of Palladio's buildings, without "artifacts" from Palladio's life, but with good biographical details & terrific models of many of his buildings.

We were expecting something more from this building. After the impressive and vast amount of stairs we had to negotiate to get to the top we discovered that there was a lift round the corner out of sight of the entrance desk. Not a good start! Then we were very disappointed to find only wooden models- magnificent models - of Palladio's buildings and a film projected onto a wall. That was it!
