The Glass Museum
From that moment on the museum has been enriched by several pieces of art that make it a unique place to visit. Here you can indeed admire masterpieces of the ancient art of glass, starting from the Roman Age to nowadays pieces, passing through hints of the 700-year-long history of glass making in Murano: you will be able to enjoy rare products famous worldwide, like the famous “coppa Barovier”. If interested, you can also learn about the techniques of glass manufacturing.
The museum organizes guided tours for adults, and offers also a wide range of activities for school children and for families who want to spend their free time in a different way: “Museo per tutti - Museum for everybody”, dedicated to grown-ups, and “Famiglie al museo - Families at the museum” are special programmes to get acquainted with the special art of glass through games and workshops.
The Glass Museum is now on the online platform “Google Art Project” too, where 54 among the most famous pieces of art are shown, both from historical tradition and contemporary.
