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.

In the far left hand corner of Piazza San Marco is Museo Correr. The original collection was donated to the City of Venice by nobleman Teodoro Correr with very specific instructions on how it was to be used, displayed and preserved. The collection has been added to over the years to become the wonderful display it is today. The building... More

We got admission to this museum as part of our combo ticket for the Doges Palace. It is in St Mark's Square and it was pouring rain so we said why not. It was actually three museums in one filled with room after room of artifacts from many different time periods. A great way to spend a few hours, and... More

This museum is missed by many of the throngs of visitors to St Marks square. It was very interesting, had many historical rooms from different eras, and you get the archeological museum for free with it. Also, the price of the ticket for this plus the Doge is not that much more than the Doge by itself so it is... More

The entrance is at the opposite side of St Mark's Square as the basilica and entry is on a combined ticked with the Doge's Palace. The museum stretches round two sides of St Mark's Square at the upper level and starts with a walk through various rooms used by the Empress Elizabeth then into the museum offering as election of...

The Correr Museum entrance is on the far end (west end) of St. Mark's Square, up the white marble staircase. It was built in the Napoleonic Era and then used by Emperor Franz Joseph I of Austria-Hungary and his wife Sisi as their palace. The elegant suite of imperial rooms reflect their tenure. The museum continues through the buildings on... More

I really enjoy going to libraries when I travel and I specifically went to the Correr Museum because of the library. It was terribly underwhelming though. If you want to see the art, it's probably worth it but I was disappointed because the library was not what I was expecting. The good thing is that the entrance fee for the... More

The museum is not well organised and one is kept going in circles. Nothing quite spectacular and there were this weird NSA exhibition when we were there. It looks rather strange to see such an exhibition in a historical room setting.

The collection displayed in Museo Correr is impressive and it can be of interest to anyone. The variety of the exhibits makes it easy for everyone to find something for themselves. However, the information provided to the displays is only in Italian, so international tourists can have troubles understanding what they are looking at - that should necessarily be improved!

Some lovely paintings and sculptures although you need to read in Italian to appreciate the posted descriptions, especially for the collections. This is part of the SanMarco Pass. No crowds to worry about. Beautiful, bright,and attractive interior.

My kids loved the newly restored palace rooms. We met a lovely security guard who really explained the rooms and their functions well. Brought it to life for the kids. My husband and I enjoyed some of the Venetian paintings relating to everyday life in historical Venice. Also, the wooden map is stunning. With a ticket to Palazzo Ducale, this... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
