"Glass museum" Isola Murano Tip by derzse
Isola Murano, Venice: 46 reviews and 68 photos
The Murano Glass Museum was founded in 1861 when the darkest period in the history of Murano glassmaking had been overcome, following the fall of the Republic of San Marco (1797) and the subsequent years of foreign rule.
Following the fusion of Murano with Venice Municipality in 1923, the Glass Museum became part of the Venetian Civic Museums.
The museum?s collection was further expanded by the addition of the Correr, Cicogna and Molin Collections which include, among other things, the most beautiful Renaissance pieces in the museum.
