The Museum was established in 1523 following the bequest of Cardinal Domenico Grimani and Giovanni Grimani who donated to the Serenissima ancient bronzes and marbles. Many of the artefacts exhibited there are the result of donations of the great Venetian families.

In the course of the following centuries the Statuary was enriched by further donations. In the twenties of the twentieth century collections were placed on the first floor of the Procuratie Nuove, which is still home of the Museum, and was then expanded between 1949 and 1954 due to the Correr filing and the allocation in Venice of ceramics, glass and gems of the Museum of San Donato of Zara.

In addition to the many Greek sculptures, including architectural and sculptural fragments of the Roman age, epigraphs, marbles and busts, bronzes, ceramics, jewelry, gifts of the Etruscan, Egyptian, Mesopotamian and Roman age, gems, ivories and a coin collection (with coins of the Republican period from the III to I century BC). Are part of the exhibition also cameos and precious stones, gems and coins.
