Treasures of the Querini Stampalia Foundation Museum

Located in the former Venetian residence of the Querini Stampalia family, the Querini Stampalia Foundation Museum is a superb example of a preserved historic house. Having been open to visitors since 1869, the museum showcases collections of rare, antique paintings, ceramics, furniture, sculptures, celestial and terrestrial globes and stucco decorations. Tickets are currently priced between 10 and 15 Euros and residents of the Municipality of Venice can visit for free on Sundays. The museum is closed on Mondays.
