Fodor's Review

The boat collection here includes scale models such as the doges' ceremonial Bucintoro, and full-size boats such as Peggy Guggenheim's private gondola complete with romantic felze (cabin). There's a range of old galley and military pieces, and also a large collection of seashells. A visit to the Paglione delle nave, a part of the museum, allows you to see a portion of the interior of the Arsinale otherwise closed to visitors.
