Murano Glass Museum (Museo del Vetro di Murano)

Murano Glass Museum (Museo del Vetro di Murano) from Blog Friend Toni P

I saw this short (four minute) video of the Museo del Vetro di Murano (Murano Glass Museum).

I wanted to share it as a source of inspiration, especially for those starting a new semester.

The Murano Glass Museum (Italian: Museo del Vetro) is a museum on the history of glass, including local Murano glass, located on the island of Murano, just north of Venice, Italy.

The museum is located in the Palazzo Giustinian. The palace was the residence of the bishops of Torcello.

It was originally built in the Gothic style as a patrician's palace. The building became the residence of Bishop Marco Giustinian in 1659. He later bought it and donated it to the Torcello diocese.

The Glass Museum was founded in 1861. It is located close to the "Museo" vaporetto water bus stop. The museum is run by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia (MUVE).
