Galleria Dell' Accademia - Review
The museum, which houses pre-19th century paintings, was also one of the first institutions in the world to study art restoration. The building itself dates back to 1343, and is the oldest Scuola Grandi (Great Schools) of Venice. The collection here is predominantly Venetian, and the arrangement is very general. That said, practically all of the Venice’s greatest painters from that era are represented here.

Galleria Dell' Accademia, Venice Reviews
The main art gallery of Venice. Paintings are obviously amazing and the staff is also very nice. However the layout of the exhibition is not well thought and it doesn't have any labels or suggestions helping with the direction of exploring the rooms, so you must be careful not to miss some of it. Also, some of the exhibits arbitrarily lack any description in English.
Do not get the audio guide! It was absolutely ridiculous. One of the commentaries literally only described the name of a painting and the artist of another artwork beside it. This information was already next to the artworks and entirely unnecessary if that was all it was going to provide. Many artworks did not have commentary, only a few so this was especially aggravating. Aside from that, many artworks that had numbers for the audio guide, upon typing it into the guide, it said that there was no commentary. Something I can't complain too much about however is that much of the art gallery was closed for renovations.
Beautiful artwork. I mostly enjoyed Bosch works. The audioguide wasn't great, and if I knew what's gonna be on it, I wouldn't buy it. The baggage storage is for additional 1 EUR.
Beautiful collection of art. However it could be a bit easier to get round. We found ourselves frequently doubling back for large amounts of the exhibition and wondering if we'd missed any.
The Accademia *is* very good - it seems to pride itself on being Venice's best Gallery, and I'd think that a fair view so far. But its range is not as broad as the Vatican Museums - don't expect that epic range or scale. This isn"t the whole of Venetian Art (other galleries tell other parts of the story), but it's a really good selection for the eras it does choose to cover. Some very good uses of digital technology to enhance - at time of writing - the first few rooms: hopefully that willl be expanded more widely in future.
