Museo Correr is situated in the ex-Royal Palace in Piazza San Marco and includes the Napoleonic Wing and the Procuratie Nuove. It was created out of the art collection which Teodoro Correr left to the city in 1830 and offers various tours: from the neoclassical rooms, with sculptures by Antonio Canova, to historical collections on the city’s institutions, urban history and daily life. The picture gallery, one of the most fascinating collections of Venetian painting from its origins to the early 16th century, includes works by Lorenzo Veneziano, the Bellini family, Carpaccio, Cosmè Tura, Antonello da Messina and Lorenzo Lotto, displayed in an interesting layout by Carlo Scarpa.

This museum was interesting, especially the rooms once occupied by Napoleon etc. The collection of artefacts was interesting, but it seemed to go on forever, we got a little bored and also a little lost!

Visited as part of a Doge Palace ticket. Well worth a visit. Was quiet when we visited. I think it probably gets missed. Lovely rooms, filled with interest.

Located on the western edge of St. Mark’s Square, the Museo Correr is a worthy stop for those interested in investigating what’s behind the superficial façade, both literally and figuratively. Entrance is up two large staircases, with a combined ticket providing access to a number of museums across Venice and the islands. A bookstore is found immediately adjacent to the... More

This is a great way to spend an afternoon, to be honest though it is really hard to give it the full attention it deserves as you just want to get back out and see all other wonderful sights of Venice. The museum pass is excellent value for money.

The Correr Museum, which has been significantly improved over the past two years, is really several disparate collections under one roof, which. when taken together, are very impressive. The Correr Museum ticket gets you into the Archaeology Museum (small collection of Greek and Roman pieces) and the Monumental Rooms of the library (quite grand and ornate), which are all housed...

This museum is all about Venice. What its all about. It is the private extensive collection of one of Venice's own citizens, Sr. Correr who while gathering his collection allowed the public to view it and upon his passing, he donated the whole collection that spans from the first century to his 19th century, to Venice. He left a great... More

Yes, don't throw away your Doge's Palace ticket because you can get in here free, absolutely free, (on a different day if you wish) but it's a huge bonus because this is a beautiful museum (combined with the Museo Archeologico) and worth a visit in its own right. It certainly deserves a higher ranking. The collection of the wealthy collector,... More

to be honest we only went in cos we had free tickets but what a lovely gorgeous house. A bit like a National Trust House followed by a small museum. We totally fell in love with it and it was not over much. did not bother with the cafe as felt it was overpriced

The museum itself was fine. Some nice pieces to look at bit they must have searched far and wide to find such a mix of staff, the most polite was the reception gentleman who appeared to have turrets and had a constant tic although he was friendly enough, from then on the staff just grunted and pointed at where we...

I honestly don't remember much about this place. I'm sure I blocked out some of it after encountering the surly guard who really needs a personality check. The musrum had interesting pieces, I remember globes and coins, religious themes as expected, paintings that may have been important but didn't leave an impression. Together with Doge's palace, made for a good... More
