Avoid. Expensive. Completely boring and pointless - nothing to see. Unintelligable piece of paper for a 'guide'.

Rather well hidden and poorly signed, this museum is worth a visit. It gives an insight into the wealth and history of the Grimani family. You need to think about what you see, the time at which it was created, the craftsmanship of the items...More

I was looking forward to going to this museum because of its grand name and promises of something special on the website. How different and how sad was my experience. The ticket was among the most expensive for similar places in Venice. The sign posting...More

This renaissance style palace became museum in 2015 thus it isn't as popular as the others in Venice but it's truly worth to visit. The decorated ceiling is breathtaking and you can have it to yourself for a long time since there aren't many tourists...More

It cost Euros 5 each for us to go into this 'palace' and they are basically empty rooms in quite a bad state of repair. The notes you are given to explain the appropriately 14/15 rooms reveal that all the statues and paintings are elsewhere....More

Beautiful stucchi and decorated ceilings. Imposing palace housing a few statues. Easy to visit thanks to extended opening hours and uncrowded rooms

I had seen images of one of the rooms of this palazzo-turned-museum, before my visit, and knew I wanted to see it in person. The museum was exceptionally empty while I was there -- maybe 10 other attendees the whole time; I felt like I...More

We lost ourselves, and ended hier. It was amazing! The reception was super friendly, and it offers lots of discounts

Venice is full of spectacular, outstanding, wonderful palazzi. Palazzo Grimani is probably not one of them. And maybe this is why it is so interesting. That said, it hosts a wonderful painting by Bosch (temporarily on display at the Galleria dell'Accademia). And a single room...More

We were fortunate to find some displays of great appeal but it is not always the case. This palazzo is down the Venice equivalent of a side alley (a narrow quiet canal) and you feel the contrast between being in the vast rooms and being...More

Because this place contains no furnishings, one is able to concentrate on the architectural concept of a Venetian palazzo and examine fascinating decorative details which might well be overlooked if the rooms were full of distracting objects. The building is a monument to the power,...More

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
(districts), and the only one not facing onto the
Grand Canal. More than half of Castello is situated
within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a

Heather, you're quite right, you need to map or satnav your way there. It's obvious when you are in Piazza Maria Formosa but that takes a bit of doing. The pleasure of walking through the little alleys to get there is what... More
