The historical and artistic heritage of Venice is of immeasurable value, even more so for the fact that many of the works can be seen in the very place in which they were created.
The Venetian Civic Museum system is composed of a group of buildings and collections of enormous artistic and historical value. It is organized into thematic areas (the San Marco area, eighteenth-century Venice, modern and contemporary, and nature and ethnography) and offers numerous educational ways to share the experience with children. Within its museums’ rooms you can find both temporary exhibitions relating to the contents of the collections and art and history exhibitions on international themes.
The Venetian Civic Museum system manages 11 sites. The most visited one is the Doge’s Palace, a place which is symbolic of Venice. It is also the closest one to the Hotel Londra Palace (a few minutes’ walk).
We suggest you visit the official websites of the sites to find their opening hours and updated events:
The State Museums of Venice are managed by a special state body responsible for historical, artistic and ethno-anthropological heritage and for the museums of the city of Venice and the towns around the lagoon. These museums also offer activities for children and frequently have prestigious exhibitions.
In addition to the civic and state museums, there are a large number of foundations, institutions and galleries in Venice. There’s not room to list them all here, but we have made a selection based on what we believe our guests’ preferences to be. Close to the Hotel Londra Palace, there is, for example, the prestigious Fondazione Giorgio Cini which can clearly be seen just across from us, only one boat stop away. For contemporary art, there is, for example, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, and also the Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana. There is the Casa dei Tre Oci in Giudecca for photography enthusiasts, the Casa del Cinema for cinema lovers and the Fondazione Querini Stampalia for browsing ancient volumes. However, there are many more.
