This museum holds art, documents, and artifacts of Venice and maps that trace the history and daily life of the people of Venice in the 13th to 16th century through paintings, sculpture, coins and weapons. The museum holds a collection of work by Antoniao Canova, a Venetian sculptor who worked in marble.

A must see is the works of the Bellini family which include the Jacopo Bellini’s Crucifixion.

The final part of the museum is the Libreria Sansoviniana, which a wonderful mix of a historical collection with a magnificent old building is historically important itself.
