Museo (Murano)

From: Venice Waterbus Stops

Murano Museo is in the center of Venice's glassmaking island, on a major canal that bisects the island from east to west. (See our 11-page Murano travel guide.) Glass shops are among the businesses that line the fondamenta or canalside promenade to the east and west.

Several hotels are close to the Museo stop: most notably the LaGareHotel Venezia - McGallery Collection (four stars), which occupies a former glassmaking factory immediately behind the boat platforms.
