Track its trace and find it camouflaged among the other buildings in the centre. Its textile collection is worth it.
Walking around Venice often leads us back to other eras. But it is in this museum that you can delve a little deeper into that environment between the 17th and 18th centuries, which engulfs its streets. The palace stands near the Grand Canal in the district of Santa Croce, next to the Church of San Stae. It was occupied from the 18th century until the mid-20th century by the aristocrat Mocenigo family and, after the death of its last descendant, it passed into public hands. Although somewhat difficult to find, it can be a very interesting site on the way to the city centre. There, its façade is disguised among the other buildings, but unlike them it retains the same look inside. Perfectly preserved, it has maintained its classic decor and ornaments to serve as a museum about the history of the city. Its most popular and abundant asset is textiles, because it has lots of clothing covering four centuries of fashion. But the mere decoration and furnishings of the palace are in themselves an image that overflows with history. Apart from this, the museum has a library holding nearly five thousand volumes from various periods.
