I visited this small museum as an add on to the Basilica and Bell tower . It probably was the least interesting and relatively small . There were some interesting ancient pottery but not a lot else

This is a museum of bits and pieces - but so worth the visit because it is on the most delightful and little visited tiny island. This is the very original Venice - there before Venice itself, so the remains on view here, though few,...More

Fun little island. A must for lunch. The museum includes a throne from the 600s attributed to Atilla the Hun (probably not) which makes a fun picture to send back home.

This was a boring museum, I can’t even understand why they had developed it. It could have told the story of the history of Torcello but it didn’t.

Many exhibits showing the early history of Torcello, the first inhabited island in the lagoon. We took advantage of the free entrance for EU citizens over 65 while we can.

Torcello is not to be missed,the Basilica,tower and museum are well worth the boat ride to reach this wonderful island full of surprises no matter where you look. Originally settled after fleeing Alinto from the barbarians the museum is filled with items dating from early...More

The Museo Provinciale di Torcello has some items from the people who lived in the island between 500 a.c and 1800 a.c.The ticket was expensive and you will not miss anything,if you will not visit it!
