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 was a reprieve from the crowds in the piazza and filled to the brim with history, art and architecture. The view of the canal from Princess Sissi's rooms are gorgeous and the Murano glass chandeliers are not to be missed. There are also two mummies tucked into one of the corners!!

If you always wondered what was above the shops and cafes of St. Mark's Square, this is it. Bellini, Carpoccio and Canova are featured. We ate at the cafe at a window table and watched the action on the Square. The 10 EURO special is worth it for a sandwich, drink and fruit. Hard to believe we overlooked this on... More

Recently visited the 'Poetry of Light' exhibition here. The exhibition was excellent, many beautiful etchings, sketches and watercolours related to Venice. Very disappointing is the cafe which should have been a convenient place to have lunch if you have a busy itinerary. We attempted to eat there around 1pm and despite tables being available it was impossible to get served.... More

Stuffed full of Tinterettos, Canovas & Titans, bolstered with ancient artefacts, this is a journey through the history of Venice. The views through the windows show various stunning glimpses of San Marco. Avoid the middle of the day when all the school children visit and go early or late.

So much to see here! It is included in the Doges Palace and after wandering around there we figured we would take a look. The collection is HUGE. You know that building to your left as your walking in the Piazza, that is the museum. All those rooms on the second floor. It is packed with interesting things and neat... More

So much history and artefacts to see here. It was interesting. Need an hour or so for this tour. If you purchased a ticket for the Doge's Palace and Cathedral then this is free

As many reviewers already mentioned, this place is huge. It includes not only Museo Correr but also The National Archeology Museum and Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana. This was the first museum I visited in Venice by accident and I am now glad it happened. It should be one the first destinations for anyone who wants to explore the history and art... More

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.
