HOW TO BOOK TICKETS FORTUNY MUSEUM AND WHAT TO SEE
Booking Fortuny Museum Tickets is the first thing to do if you want to discover one of the most fascinating places in Venice.
By purchasing tickets for the Fortuny Museum in advance, you can walk through the rooms where Mariano and his wife created the most famous and important clothes and furnishings of the 20th century.
Here, then, is all the information you need to book Fortuny Museum tickets.
Fortuny Museum Tickets
When Mariano Fortuny y Madrazo first entered Palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei in 1898, the building was in a state of decay and decay.
Mariano, a Spanish artist and brilliant entrepreneur, was fascinated by it and took about ten years to restore it to its splendour.
Soon the palazzo, which became home and workshop for Mariano and his wife, became the salon of the Venetian and international cultural elite.
Buying Fortuny Museum tickets means having access to a world of textiles, art and fashion in your pocket.
WHERE TO BUY FORTUNY MUSEUM TICKETS
Tickets to see the Fortuny Museum can be purchased in 2 ways:
1 – at the museum ticket office but at certain times of the year Venice is really taken by tourists. So don’t be surprised if you have to queue at the entrance;
2 – by booking online, choosing the day and time of entry and skipping the queue.
This way you will enter immediately at the time you set at the time of booking.

WHAT TO SEE AT THE FORTUNY MUSEUM
Thanks to a recent and important restoration and new layout of the museum, more than ninety per cent of the materials relating to Mariano Fortuny owned by the Venetian civic collections or held on loan, such as the precious antique textiles from the Venice Foundation, are all on display.
The visit is therefore an enthralling journey that combines the emotion of the house and the rooms he lived in, with themed rooms with a more museum-like flavour, and a section in which the objects and tools of Mariano’s innovative work are the protagonists.
