Great idea for creating the replicas of his work. Especially since this gives you an opportunity to see it up close and not behind glass.

Amazing place.. I did visit in morning when they just started working.. less people then and you can walk slowly around without noise..

The museum is very interesting, with really good information, what we liked the most was the interactive hands on activities.

Beautiful exhibit. Be sure to grab this ticket in advance because often sold out!

This is must see in Venice! The collections were just breathtaking!
