What To Expect

Visit the museum that began as Venice's school of painting, sculpture, and architecture, founded in 1750 by the Veneitan Senate and moved to its current home inside the Scuola della Carità in 1807. The focus of the collection is artwork by Venetian painters through the 18th century, and the school was one of the first to study art restoration.

Many churches in Venice were destroyed during the Napoleonic period. Much of the art was confiscated. There are works of art from those churches that survive in the Accademia – the only testimony remaining from that era in some cases.

Tour the Accademia Galleries at your own pace, learning about the art on display and the history of the school.

Gallerie dell'Accademia

Founded in 1750 by the Venetian Senate as Venice’s school of painting, sculpture, and architecture, the school was one of the first to study and develop art restoration. The Accademia was renamed the Accademia Reale di Belle Arti and moved to its present premises in 1807 by order of the Napoleonic occupying forces. After the suppression of religious congregations and public Venetian magistratures, a large quantity of art works was confiscated. A selection of masterpieces was sent to Paris, to be shown in the Louvre Museum.

The connection between the Accademia Galleries and Venice is deep, as many important works from churches, schools, and public magistratures are preserved here. In some cases, the shown works are the only testimony remaining from churches destroyed during the Napoleonic period. Some of the most famous paintings form part of the collections thanks to the generosity of private collectors.

      The ticket gets you into the Accademia with no issues. There was no line when I arrived. Not too many tourists which is nice. The museum is worth a visit.

      nathalie_c, May 2022
      Ce musée est absolument magnifique. Néanmoins cette expérience avec viator a franchement laissé à désirer. Je n’ai jamais pu obtenu le vrai bon d’échange à présenter au musée. L’accueil a fait les démarches par téléphone, mais à contrecœur. Nous avons eu de meilleures expériences avec Viator

      suzan_v, Apr 2022
      DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE. We were told we would have the tickets emailed to us 2 business days before our booked entry time. Never GOT the tickets. Tried calling and emailing but no help. Went to the museum and they said this was a "scam"--their words. We had to buy tickets again--AND CHEAPER-- with no line btw!! So I am out $40 US. What a rip off

      Christian M, Jun 2017
      Der Besuch der Accademia Gallerie gehört bei einem Venedig Programm zum Pflichtbesuch. Dank des Tickets mit der festen Einlasszeit kann man schnell die Säle erkunden. Es ist im Vergleich zur Accademia in Florenz nicht so voll.

      Eric_T, Sept 2016
      This was fine but to be honest the queues were very short and so we could have arrived without tickets and still been admitted very quickly. This was at about 10.30 in the morning at the beginning of September. I clearly don't know whether there would have been longer queues at other times. The Gallery was well worth a visit if you like classical paintings.

      Andras V, Oct 2016
      The Accademia is surely in the league of the top-top art museums of the world! The best, time permit, is to buy two tickets for two consecutive days to cover and absorb its wealth.
      Pauline_M, Oct 2021
      The booking didn’t work, the tickets never arrived and the staff at the academia made us pay again. A very unsatisfactory experience
      Dringend abzuraten!!!
      Thies_C, Sept 2021
      Die Eintrittskarten waren länger Voraus für einen Mittwoch bestellt und bezahlt. Erst nach Nachfragen erreichte uns ein falsches Ticket für ein anderes Museum für den Donnerstag für Studenten. An der Kasse bei der Accademia hatten wir große Probleme. Viator hatte keine Bestellung bei. Museum hinterlegt. Erst nach einem Telefonat und mit Hilfe des Kassenpersonals gab Viator den Buchungscode telefonisch durch. Wir raten dringend ab, bei Viator zu buchen! Übles Erlebnis! Das brauchen wir nicht nochmal!

      disappointed that we didn't get our tickets
      Jennifer_S, Apr 2022
      Unfortunately, I could not get our tickets to download. I tried contacting the company to let them know that I was having a problem and did not get a reply. Viator warned that this trip was arranged by the museum and not by them. This visit was also non-refundable. So again, it was unfortunate that we were unable to go.
