The whole of Italy organizes its recovery after the health emergency, adopting simple rules and rethinking the vital and existential spaces of each of us. Combining security, culture and social life has become a common national goal and the city of Venice participates in it by reopening in confidence some of its extraordinary Civic Museums. When? Every Saturday and Sunday starting from Saturday 13th June 2020.   

What museums are reopening?


Since 2008, the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia has been managing and enhancing the city's rich heritage in eleven marvellous museums: Doge's Palace, Museo Correr, Ca' Rezzonico - Museum of the Venetian 18th century, Ca' Pesaro - International Gallery of Modern Art, Murano Glass Museum, Fondaco of the Turks - Natural History Museum, Palazzo Mocenigo - Fabric and Costume Museum, Palazzo Fortuny, Burano Lace Museum, Carlo Goldoni's House and Clock Tower

At the moment three great museums will reopen in this first phase, following strict safety protocols: 

Doge's Palace (open from 10.00 to 18.00).

Glass Museum (open from 11.00 to 17.00)  

Lace Museum (open from 12.00 to 16.00)

Some of the main educational activities will also start again, such as MUSEI IN GIOCO, a summer camp for girls and boys aged between 7 and 11 years, active from Monday 8th June 2020. For adults, instead, it will be possible to book educational tours that will have the singularity of taking place in a closed museum at specific times and days, and therefore offer a truly unique experience for the visitor. The routes, organized for groups of maximum 10 people, will be guided by expert educational operators and will be activated in June and July for the Doge's Palace, Ca' Rezzonico - Venetian 18th century Museum, Glass Museum in Murano, Lace Museum in Burano and Natural History Museum in Venice Giancarlo Ligabue. These unique guided tours will also be available in several languages. A great opportunity to transform a moment of crisis into a sensational opportunity.
