The Murano Glass Museum was founded in 1861 when the darkest period in the history of Murano glassmaking had been overcome, following the fall of the Republic of San Marco ( 1797) and the subsequent years of foreign rule.
The collection are laid out chronologically on the first floor of the Museum. Starting from an archaeological section(mezzanine), which contains noteworthy Roman works dating from the 1st-3rd centuries AD, it then progresses to the largest historical collection of Murano glass in the world, with pieces dating from the fifteenth to the twentieth centuries, many of them world-famous masterpieces.
