The museum is organised by historical periods and it makes easy to understand how the glass art has developed though time. The first rooms are dedicated to the history of glass form the Fourtheen to the Seventeen century. Then, you can immerge yourself into the Eighteen century up to the mid Nineteenth century. The rooms dedicated to the 1850-1895 period are called ‘The revival’ and they open the way to the fabulous period of the design glass of the 1900-1970 and the one of the contemporary glass.
During your visit you will see amazing masterpieces such as the Barovier Drinking Cup (1470) and many other operas by the most famous Murano glass masters.
