The Fondaco dei Turchi ("The Turks' Inn") is a Byzantine-style palazzo on the Grand Canal. Today, it houses the Natural History Museum of Venice, with historical collections of flora and fauna, fossils, and an aquarium. From the early 17th century through to 1838, the fondaco served as a one-building-ghetto for Venice's Ottoman Turkish population - hence it is often referred to as The Turkish Ghetto.
