Expert review of Querini Stampalia Museum
The Querini Stampalia museum is a delightful place, still furnished with antiques from the Querini family collection, among which nestle artworks including a stunningly beautiful 'Presentation in the Temple' by Giovanni Bellini.
If you're travelling with children, they may appreciate the dozens of 18th-century paintings by Gabriele Bella depicting some of Venice’s odder historic competitive sports, such as head-butting a cat tied to a pole or shimmying up a greased pole to throttle a suspended goose. The vignettes by Pietro Longo of 18th-century Venetian society are rather less gruesome.
I generally try to time my visits for Saturday evenings at 5pm when the ticket price includes admission to a chamber concert of Renaissance and Baroque music.
€10, €8 reductions.
