  • The dullest museum I have been to for a long time. Given the rich maritime history of Venice that must have taken some doing. Glass cases full of dusty models and old muskets with barely legible descriptions that tell no coherent story at all. This place could be so much better
  • Amazing sublime and terrifying. Puts context into the events that are taking place now around the world. Shows the amazing skill, endeavour imagination and accomplishments of humans and how destructive and misguided we can be. An education. Don't miss it.
