Time Out says

The history of Venetian fashion explained.

An impressive Renaissance palazzo designed by Mauro Codussi in the first decade of the 16th century. Wagner died here in 1883. It now houses the Venice Casinò and holds a collection of perfumes, textiles and period costumes (including an andrienne dress with bustles so horizontal you could rest a cup and saucer on them, antique lace and silk stockings, and a whalebone corset), which are displayed among ne furniture and fittings, in rooms with walls now covered with exquisite Rubelli reproductions of the original fabrics. Added to the museum during the restoration is a fascinating section on perfumes and perfumery, with intriguing essences in lovely glass jars to explore and sniff.
