Just as the name suggests, the Ca’Pesaro Oriental Art Museum is located in the imposing Ca’Pesaro of Venice, on the upper floor of the building. Thus, a visit to the Oriental Art Museum can very well complement the visit to the International Gallery of Modern Art the collections of which are sheltered on the lower floor of Ca’Pesaro, mostly if tourists take into account a common ticket for both of these museums is available at the sale points, granting visitors the privilege of enjoying a discounted admission price.

Most of the exhibits showcased by the Ca’Pesaro Oriental Art Museum are artifacts brought from Japan, but sundry museum pieces from Indonesia, Cambodia and China are also on display. Thus, visitors can admire a vast range of artifact (armors, vases, weapons), as well as a collection of fine art works (chiefly, paintings by Hokusai, Korvusai and Harunobu, just to list a few examples).

The origins of this museum can be traced back to the late 19th century, when Prince Henry of Bourbon-Parma donated his collections to the Italian state.
