Located on the Grand Canal and housed in a late Renaissance palace, these two museums have an impressive collection of art. The first collection is the Museo d'Arte Moderna or the Museum of Modern Art. Here numerous works of art are displayed, most of which have been bought during Venice's own Biennale over the years. The artists displayed include Chagall, Kandinsky, Klimt, Miró, Henry Moore, Umberto Boccioni, Morandi, and Filippo De Pisis. The top floor houses the Museo d'Arte Orentale collection, which mostly comprises Japanese artifacts, and Chinese, Javanese, Siamese (Thai), Cambodian, and Indonesian pieces. This oriental collection might be relocated to the Palazzo Marcello.
