Easy to get around and see all the art inside. Takes time to go around so you can go only to the parts that interested you.
I love modern art, but it has it's place. Personally I love to see ancient roman artefacts and statues alone, without odd art displays between, around and with the antiquities. Found it very disturbing and off putting. If you have already visited the palacio Ducale then you have a free entry ticket, so use it, but don't go out of... More
I especially enjoyed the antiquities section of the museum which included classical sculptures as well as a very good collection of Egyptian mummies, canopic jars and friezes of chariot warfare. The Venetian part of the building is lovely, but you can't take photos there as I found out after the first one. If you're interested in ancient history, this is... More
Located on the other side of San Marco. One of the tricks to avoiding the line at Doges Palace is to buy a ticket here. I enjoyed this more than I enjoyed the Secret Itineraries tour at the Doges Palace.
We love all the museums in Venice, but this is our favourite. Take the trouble to visit this exciting building, it's works of art and exquisite apartments. The Museo Correr originated with the collection bequeathed to the city of Venice in 1830 by Teodoro Correr. A member of a traditional Venetian family, Correr was an avid collector, dedicating most of... More
We had time in the late afternoon to visit this museum before it closed and wanted to take advantage of the entrance fee being included in the combo ticket for the Doge's Palace and St Mark's Basilica. We were amazed at the variety of art work, antiquities and modern items, plus other displays about life in Venice. Admittedly, we were... More
Maybe we'd just hit cultural overload at this point in our holiday and just couldn't take any more. The state apartments were very nice indeed, though, and I liked the 'history of Venice' rooms, but after that... it all got a bit samey - room after room of the same sort of thing with nothing really standing out. As an... More
We'd read some professional reviews before visiting, one of which said most people spend only about 20 minutes there, so we weren't expecting much. However, once we got past the surly, unfriendly and, frankly, miserable officials who refused to engage in conversation with anyone except their colleagues, we had a great time wandering round the rooms and soaking up a...

We were not planning on visiting this museum, but glad that we did. We purchased the ticket for the Doge's palace and 3 other museums were included and this was one of the. Excellent historical items of Venice can be seen here. In particular, I enjoyed the different coins with the heads Of different rulers on them.
Beautiful museum definitely worth a look, especially if you have purchased a ticket for Doge's Palace, which I believe grants you free admission to this museum, unfortunately we weren’t aware of this, thought we had to pay separately to get into this museum and ended up paying twice! Try not to make this mistake. Worth a visit when in St... More
