The museum, opened in 1981, is located in the spaces of the historic Burano Lace School, founded in 1872 by Countess Andriana Marcello to recover and relaunch a centuries-old tradition.
Starting from 1978, a careful activity of rediscovery and cultural enhancement of this art begins, the archive of the ancient School, rich in important documents and drawings, is rearranged and cataloged; the venue was restructured and transformed into an exhibition space; thus the Lace Museum was born.
Over one hundred precious specimens from the School's rich collection are exhibited in the Lace Museum, as well as important evidence of Venetian production from the 16th to the 20th century. Included since 1995 in the Civic Museums of Venice, this space now offers not only the display of pieces of great value, but also the possibility of observing from life the processing techniques proposed by the lace makers, still today the custodians of this art and present at the morning in the museum. Furthermore, the archive is available to scholars, an important source of historical-artistic documentation, with drawings, photos and various iconographic testimonies.
