Oriental Art Museum


This is a museum within Ca' Pesaro - the entry ticket gives you access to the museum and the other galleries in Ca' Pesaro. There is a lot to see.
This is a museum run by the Italian state. On the first Sunday every month entry to the museum is free #domenicalmuseo - but in this case, the entry is only for the museum and not for the art galleries.

Most of the art they had was beautiful. They had a wide variety, but definitely a smaller collection than you may find elsewhere. Everything from cubism to Impressionism to sculpture and glasswork. I was there during the David Hockney exhibition, which I enjoyed immensely. I also really enjoyed the oriental floor, which had some beautiful ancient scroll paintings. The gift shop was disappointing, and there wasn't really anything in there worth buying, unless you need a pencil. Overall, it was a little expensive, but lovely, and their cafe overlooking the grand canal was very nice. Would definitely go again! Also great to sit in the lobby working!

This is a greatly underated art museum. I was visiting on a Saturday and there was almost no one else there despite the fact that the museum boasts some very nice modern art by worldclass artists (Warhol, Klimt, etc). The entry price cannot be the reason for its limited visitors as it is included in the museum pass which is 11 municipal museums for 24 euros grand total. The building is well-kept, the lighting on the art is good as well. If you're into oriental art then the topfloor shall be your destination. Overall I enjoyed this more than the Peggy Guggenheim collection, also in Venice.

Very nice selection of late 19th and 20th century at from Warhol and Liechtenstein to Chagall, Rodin, Sorolla and Klimt. Nice bright open and airy building.

Amazing modern art museum. The San Stae trio of museums are worth a visit themselves and rival in diversity what the San Marco museums have to offer. I was also fortunate to see a collection of portraits by David Hockney.

Went there with my daughter- 25 euros to see the thinnest collection of ordinary 20th century art I have ever seen. This museum should be free and even if it were I would think twice about visiting. No air conditioning, blinds falling apart, the place is suffering badly from lack of investment and clearly trying to find capital from extortionate entrance fees. Worth a glance from the Grande Canal at best.

Пройти через строй японских пик, ознакомиться с порядком одевания самурая и изучить 3 витрины с ножами для харакири. Translate
