It costs 10€ person to get into this place. The collection is not even that great. One can see the entire museum in about 45 mins to an hour. We honestly had much more fun going around to the different shops and galleries and looking at the Murano glass items they had on display. I wish we hadn't gone to... More

We aren't big fans of the typical Murano glass designs, especially the cheap stuff in the tourist outlets. So it was eye-opening to see the wide range of designs in this museum. Definitely worth the entrance fee. [Also a good WC]

This is a rather small museum, one can go through all of it in one hour. It provides a fascinating history of glass manufacturing, from antiquity to the present time. The glass objects are beautiful. The most interesting, I thought, was the milk glass (imitating porcelain). One shouldn't miss the introductory video they project in a small room at the... More

Lots of the exhibits show the history of the local glass industry, however it's fairly small and some of the later rooms are a bit dull and the temporary exhibit we saw was very pretentious. The ticket price is a little high compared to other local attractions and in my opinion the gift shop is very over priced.

Having seen various articles made from Murano glass since arriving in Venice it seemed appropriate to visit the island where they are made. The museum has an introductory film which helpfully shows the techniques used in producing a range of glassware from jewelry to chandeliers. You can then go round the museum at your leisure to see examples of glass... More

If you are visiting Murano you should really find out a bit about the history and the process of Murano glass. Yes you can do this by being dragged into one of the still operating glass factories for a demonstration followed by the hard sell. Or you can come here. We visited the museum and we were glad we did... More

It seems compulsory to undertake a diversionary circuit, with fellow day tripping visitors fresh off the vaporetto, around Murano with its historic yet bespoke glassmaking furnaces and sparkling showrooms. We all collide on narrow, humid streets along canals, so it was with some relief that we found our way to the Glass Museum, where it’s small but green gardens offer... More

We loved watching the master glass blower show us from beginning to end how to make art from colored sand-like materials. We purchased earrings for 10ero & were invited at no additional charge to enjoy the demonstration. Highly recommend!!

Included in the Venice Museum Pass. Great introduction to a range of glass making processes. Enjoyed seeing the Ange and age of glass on display including some amazing Chandeliers and a contemporary thought provoking exhibition.
