After a fire in the earlier building the splendid administration building was erected on the north side of St. Mark's Square in the 16th century. The formerly rectangular square thus acquired its present distinctive trapezoidal shape. Striking features of the building are the numerous rows of arcades: 50 arches grace the ground floor and 100 each on the first and second floors.

It is not known for certain who made the mid-14th-century Golden Altar Piece. It is a masterpiece of engraving that uses Byzantine ancient enamels, which originate from the pillage of Byzantium in 1204. The Treasure of San Marco should not be missed. A large part was melted down to mint money, but what remains can satisfy the curiosity of even the most demanding visitor, from an artistic and historic point of view. It can be accessed directly from the Basilica di San Marco.
O museu situa-se no 1° andar da Catedral de S. Marcos e integra obras de arte litúrgicas e tapetes.
Located in the Procuratie Nuove, two minutes from Biblioteca Marciana Marciana, this is one of the oldest museums the city has to offer. Built at the bequest of Domenico Grimani in 1523. Museo Archeologico houses findings of Egyptian, Assyrian-Babylonian, Greek and Roman origin. This includes coin collections, Grimani statues dating from the 4th and 5th Centuries BCE, as well as pieces from the classic and Hellenistic periods, Latin epigraphs, vases and male busts from the imperial era. The museum is slightly off the tourist trail, which makes it all the more interesting.
