Overview
More
The GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts counts among the most significant of its type in Europe and stands out for a completely new permanent exhibition. The first tour “From Ancient times to Historism” is a call to a journey covering over 3,000 years of the history of art. Amongst others, the fascination in this journey is the Roman Hall, the Piranesi Gallery and precious Baroque Items of the Treasure Chamber. The second exhibition area “Asian art: Impulse for Europe” is above all else, dedicated to art treasures from China, Japan and Iran. In the third trip “From Art Nouveau to the present day”, there is a series of treasures from the period of Art Nouveau of known and unknown Bauhaus pieces, design highlights as from 1950, East German design and pieces from the immediate present. Each year at the end of October the Museum held the GRASSIMESSE, an international forum and fair fur applied art and product design from all fields.

It looks good, large museum, in front a lot of activity with some interesting stalls selling local pottery and porcelain, but that might be only a summer’s day once off event. Not sure really. Museum itself is solid and good, art through the history, some...More

Beautiful museum , part of the Grassi museums, in a beautiful building. It does not seem big but we spent three hours on this collection, that takes you from the classical era to the modern times. It is an excellent complement to the Stadtmuseum in...More

I thought that the museum of applied arts was absolutely worth seeing. The permanent exhibition is great. The displays were in German and English and they did provide headsets for English-Speakers. They offer booklets in English, French, Spanish and Russian.
