Museo del Merletto (Lace Museum)
The Lace Museum on Burano contains more than 200 examples of Venetian lace-making dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries. The collection is organized in chronological order over two floors, including a section on the Burano Lace School, which existed on the island for nearly 100 years. There are also special exhibits that are on display periodically, so check at the museum ticket desk to find out what extra collections are there when you visit.
In addition to the exhibits in the Museo del Merletto, you can also see traditional lace-making being done by hand by people who still maintain and practice the art form.
