It is a surprise in Venice. The Palace was the beautiful residence of one of the most important families in Venice: it ha been beautifully restored. Inside there was almost nothing left, but through various loans they have been able to put in a small beautiful collection of objects. The main surprise is that Giovanni Grimani was a Renaissance collector of Roman antiquities, and the final room is a wonderful reconstruction of his taste.
This is a scam! Stay away at all cost. It is advertised as an "ancient sculpture museum" but has literally about a room and a half of sculptures. Most of the museum is empty and yet they still charge you the full price of 13 euros to see a mediocre Bacchus and an ever worse Venus. False advertising, and a complete waste of money. Do not go there! 0/10
