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!

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.

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.

Fantastic Palazzo gallery. Collection of 20th century art almost on a par with the Guggenheim, but far more spacious and fewer people. In fact, this was a ocean of calm in an overcrowded city. Also contains a floor of Oriental art, which has enough Japanese weaponry to equip a small army, in addition to ceramics, a beautiful chess set, and various other objects. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area.

The collection is nice, the palace is awesome. Be shure to stop at the coffee shop that has a very nice view on the grand canal. Also don't forget to visit the oriental art collection on the last floor: it's amazing expecially for the japanese arms enthusiasts.

De belles oeuvres, ça vaut le coup si vous passez pas loin. Translate

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