Fondazione Querini Stampalia

The House-Museum has been open to visitors since 1869 telling by means of everyday life, traditional and cultural stories that reflect Venice’s lifetyle: a unique city in the world.

Querini Stampalia Foundation hosts a library, a museum and an area dedicated to temporary exhibitions.

An intense programme of educational activities offers various publics ever new interpretations of the Museum, Library exhibitions and architecture of the building itself, through laboratories and educational courses.

The ground floor was restored in 1963 by Carlo Scarpa while the site’s new service area was designed by architect Mario Botta.
