A patrician residence at San Stae, Palazzo Mocenigo houses valuable 18th century artworks and is also home to the Study Centre for the History of Textiles and Costumes. A fine selection of rare textiles and costumes of particular importance are displayed. The collection is laid out with a significant importance given to garments and accessories. Mainly of Venetian origin, the works are often embellished with lace and embroidery, skills of several artisans who made such a contribution to that refined luxury and elegance for which the Venetians of those days were famous for.

We hadn't planned on going to this museum, but as it was on the museum pass, we thought we'd check it out. It's a very interesting museum full of textiles, paintings and perfume materials. They're not really our areas of interest, but it's unusual to have a museum with exhibits for the olfactory senses. There is a section of glass... More

Fascinating collection of historic textiles, costumes and embroidery.... and a perfume display! A little hard to find on foot - take the vaporetto.

After reading some reviews here on tripadvisor, I was full of expectations, because I love fashion.The entry fee with 8 Euros is a little high, because the museum is not that big and you are "done" within one hour. If you go there just for fashion, I would'nt expect much. Maybe 3 rooms with baroque dresses and menswear. Still stunning,... More

A little gem that I nearly didn't bother with. As it is quite near Ca’ Pesaro and was included in the Museum Pass, I though to myself "why not?". I'm so pleased I did. It provided another insight into aristocratic life a couple or so centuries ago. However, for me, the real surprise was the exhibition on perfumery ...... a... More

The Palazzo Mocenigo is not really a tourist place but has a nice collection of clothing from the time of the Doges. It gives a good idea of how they lived in the roooms in a Palace. I would certainly go back when in Venice.

We spent a morning happily exploring this building. Lots to enjoy - especially the display of embroidered silk waistcoats. A fascinating and informative exhibition about perfume too. Well worth a visit

At Palazzo Mocenigo you will discover not only the interior of a house where people lived until the begining of the 20th century, but beautiful costumes of another era and perfumes! In fact, you will learn a lot about the history of perfumes, you will be able to smell nice little bottles, see the basic ingredients and tools they used.... More

A pleasant surprise to discover the Museo di Palazzo Mocenigo near the Ca’ Pesaro. One of those hidden treasures, on walking up the grand staircase you discover the 17th century Palazzo’s aristocratic state rooms with painted ceilings on the first floor along with a collection of fabrics and costumes. At the time of visiting there was also an exhibition on... More

This palazzo is a pleasure to visit. It offers a sense of life for the Venetian noble family in such a palazzo, and retains a remarkable quantity of the original Mocenigo furniture and artwork (including a Bellini), but it has been beautifully refurbished recently with exquisite silk wall coverings that are modern yet complement the mood of 17th and 18th...

A very curious example of how the Dodge's families used to live, with a vast amount of details, furnitures and objects.

Staying in San Polo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Polo
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.
