Not included in the museum card, this vast building houses several different galleries, all of which have separate pricing and house rotating exhibits. The building is impressive and worth a venture inside even if you don't visit any of the galleries it contains.

We were under the wrong impression that this was a grand palazzo to tour like some of the others. Not so! Upon entering, there was a tennis exhibition in the main entryway. There was an exhibit of works by Picasso, but it required a separate...More

The Ducal Palace is used as exhibition space mostly. We viewed the Picasso exhibition which was worth a visit.

The Doge's palace has secret passage ways and a labyrinth of rooms and passages. There's always an art exhibition on here and this trip I caught Picasso! Well worth a visit.

This is really an exhibition centre, though the entrance on the cathedral side is quite impressive, and you can cut through here to Piazza di Ferrari via a large open span reception area.

If you are claustrophobic don't go to the cells. They are however fascinating and even though you are not allowed all the way up the tower there are some views.
