I.m not a musician, but enjoyed this interlude, with beautiful instruments and music playing. The mandolins were especially lovely, to my eyes. There were explanatory posters in Italian and English--mostly about Vivaldi. We walked on to a very nice lunch on St. Stephen's Square (Campo San Stefano)--a large and relatively uncrowded square lined with patio dining.

If you are interested in baroque musical instruments then this is worth a visit inside a church. Entrance is free.

it was only on the last day that we walked past this old chiurch to find its doors open. Inside is a wondrous collection of vilins, violas and other stringed intruments. The Lyre-guitars are particularly wonderful. If you play this is a must see though i fear for my non-playing partner it was rather dull. Only thing that got me... More

The museum of musical instruments is housed inside the Church of San Maurizio. Here you will find many violins, cellos, and mandolins. We were especially interested in the old woodwinds in one display case. The little museum is filled with music as you stroll by to see the various instruments.

It's free! Just wander in and peruse at your leisure. A must for anyone interested in the development of violins, etc. A windowed door looks into a facsimile workshop with all the necessities for instrument making.

This is a very nicely done display of musical instruments. Take time to read the information posters. It adds much to the instruments and history of the area.

We did not plan to visit this Museum, but by walking on the streets, we saw it and decided to give it a try. So many things to see and to learn! 5*!

As other reviews have said - this is an old church and is beautiful in that sense. It also has the added bonus of housing a museum of musical instruments with a small shop and ticket office. The background of Vivaldi in such a setting is divine. It is also possible to sit in the small square outside to have... More

This former church is now a small museum displaying musical, mostly string, instruments crafted over the past three hundred years. We found it quite by accident while heading to the Accademia bridge. With baroque music playing softly in the background it provided a nice change of scenery and a fascinating hour long experience.

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
