This museum is worth the small price for admission because it gets you to the balcony of the Basilica at St Mark's which is a cool view from above. Also gets you access to the 4 original bronze horses that date back about 1000 years.

I think that this museum -- on the floor above the Basilica's main level -- is well worth the climb and 5 E admission charge. It features the original Four Horses of Saint Mark's (aka Triumphal Quadriga) and access to the copies outside on the...More

It is a small museum, but getting to see the Basilica ceiling and wall mosaics from up high is fantastic. Another wonderful sight is the original Triumphal Quadriga, also known as the Horses of Saint Mark's. Access to the museum is through the steep stairs,...More

This museum holds interesting and beautiful art that you don't see every day. The mosaics are lovely. The four bronze horses are worth the visit. The stairs and floors are also works of art.

Yes-you can only access the museum once you are inside the Basilica, so you could pay to skip the line to get that far, but the museum is not a busy place, (almost empty compared to the church itself) so no waiting time at... More
