Museums in Venice

One of the European countries that promotes culture the most is Italy, and it is that by history it is known that the greatest monuments and the great geniuses of art come from here. That is why there are a lot of museums in Italy that delight all types of public, especially lovers of art or the many things that are exhibited in each of them. One of the most attractive cities in Italy is Venice , and although we all know that if you go there the first thing you want to do is get on a gondola, the cultural offer of the city is very important.

So, if you are going to visit Venice , I leave you a few very interesting museums so that you can make a route and visit at least some of them. Take note:

Gallerie dell’Accademia : It is a spectacular gallery on the south bank of the Grand Canal, in the Dorsoduro sestiere, and which gives its name to one of the three bridges that cross the canal. It is prior to the 19th century and at first it was opened as an art school in which the works of the students began to be exhibited and finally it was left as a museum.

Ca ‘d’Oro : Also called the Santa Sofia Palace, it is considered one of the most beautiful palaces on the Grand Canal, as well as one of the largest and most spectacular. It is called "House of Gold" for the exterior decoration, which is based on golden elements. It was built in the middle of the 15th century.

Peggy Guggenheim : Here you will find a large personal collection of modern art pieces that were collected by Peggy Guggenheim, one of the great art collectors in history and who was one of the wives of the surrealist painter Max Ernst. It also has a garden with lots of sculptures and in the gallery there are works by great artists such as Picasso, Dalí, Pollock, Kandinsky or Duchamp.

Museo Correr : It is the Civic Museum of Venice and it is in Piazza San Marco, right in front of the basilica that bears the same name. It has a spectacular collection of travel balloons, collected from the 16th century on.

Palazzo Mocenigo : It is a palace that Alvise Nicoló, the last descendant of this prestigious Italian family, ceded to the city in 1945. It began to be used as a museum to complement the Correr Museum and in 1985 it was named headquarters of the Museum and Center of Studies of the History of Fabrics and Costumes and houses large collections of typical costumes from all regions of the country and ancient fabrics, many of them almost impossible to find elsewhere.
