The Murano Glass Museum houses examples of works from the fifteenth to the twentieth centruy, and is located on the upper floor of the ex Bishop's Palace of Torcello. This site has a wealth of further information on Murano / Venetian glass.

Opening times are, approximately, 10.30 AM to 4.30 PM November to March, and 10.30 AM to 6.00 PM for the rest of the year. The museum is closed on Christmas Day, New Year's Day, and May 1st. The ticket includes the Venice Lace Museum.


To reserve tickets for the Murano Glass Museum, just fill out the booking form, give us your preferences for date and time (dates are in European DD/MM/YYYY format), supply us with credit card details, and we'll do the rest. There will be no charge whatsoever until we confirm your reservation. We'll then point you to our secure page, where you can print out your entry voucher. Print it out, take it with you to the museum and present it at the ticket desk ... they will swap it for your entry ticket. As simple as that!

You won't have to join any queue, but nonetheless we'd advise you to arrive 20 minutes before your entry time.

PLEASE NOTE: You must present yourself at the galleries at the time specified on your booking voucher - admittance will not be granted at other times.

Please also be prepared to show some ID - It is sometimes difficult for Italian officials to understand that not all countries require their citizens to carry ID cards, if indeed they are issued in said countries at all. You will often find that nothing other than a Passport or Driving Licence (with photograph) will suffice.
