  • I'm so happy me and my husband stopped in here! I was pleasantly surprised by the very large collection of Japanese pieces from swords to paintings on silk, but what I found most fascinating was the r...  more »
  • .... except for the usual lack of state funds, the display of the pieces started in old storefronts that would be enough to change the glass with an anti-reflective one to see something. I do not say to buy the latest generation of museum exhibitors with stabilized microclimate and cold led lighting system (UV free) as they have the most important museums in Japan, but at least of the very simple anti-reflection and beam shielding glass to allow for a slightly more usable ambient light. However, I agree when it comes to keeping the preservation of the works in a dim environment as a priority until more suitable means are available. The beauty of Japanese llackeys lies in the micro details depictive... almost impossible to appreciate in such conditions.... it's a shame. The quality of the works on display is very varied and includes some pieces of the highest quality. Perhaps the amount of works in the showcase is also too much, at the limit of assembly. It would be better to lighten the number (some pieces are of little artistic interest) valuing the best elements with good exposure (perhaps with turnover programs of the works). It would be enough to copy as do the best museums in the world nowadays... here we are at the Middle Ages of exhibition culture. Suffice it to say that it is the only collection in the world that does not yet have a catalogue of works... Cursed funds... Beyond these small flaws the Museum and its collection is worth a trip.

  • Great museum with a lot of items displayed. Worth a visit if you like Oriental art...
  • I have never seen such refined examples of oriental art! Also, the Ca' Pesaro palace is a wonderfully boroque building, the white stone simply shines on the Grand Canal, exemplifying venetian glamour.
