On the island of Murano, the museum is housed in the noble Palazzo Giustinian, formerly the seat of the Bishops of Torcello. The collections are ordered chronologically: in addition to the archaeological section, which includes significant Roman finds between the first and third centuries after Christ, there is the largest historical review of Murano glass, with important pieces produced between the fifteenth and the twentieth century, between whose masterpieces of world renown.
Remarkable is the garden, in which contemporary glass works are often exposed in a particularly suggestive context.
