Touring The Palazzo Grimani, Venice

Venice is filled with old mansions, left by various doges, that have been turned into museums. Not really. There are plenty of palaces, but maybe only small sums of Euros available for the transformation for public use.

One recent addition to the Venice museum scene is the Palazzo Grimani, opened in 2015. It dates to 1569, once the home to the doge Antonio Grimani. The museum is still figuring out how to use the space. No matter, the space itself is worth a look.

Entrance courtyard.

Inside, walls dripping with ornamentation. A clash of old and new, marble and Italian plastic.

Fireplace and sly door.

Brooding art.

Some more Italian plastic, left behind.
