Owner description: 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.
Useful Information: Stairs / elevator, Bathroom facilities

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

The library rooms were particularly nice, the painted ceilings had some interesting scenes. I liked this better than the overdone Doge's Palace.

We bought a combined ticket for the Doge's Palace, and so went round. I'm glad we didn't pay to go here separately, as we would have felt disappointed. The rooms were well-appointed and decorated, but after having seen the splendour of the Doge's Palace we weren't to impressed, and were beginning to get bored.

Likely one of the most well-appointed, elegantly decorated and curated museums in Europe. Not to be missed if interested in history of Venice, art, decoration and much more.

I sometimes find that a trip to a museum is disappointing however I was not disappointed with this one. The entrance was included In the ticket for the Palazzo Ducale but I would pay a separate ticket to visit again. I found so much to look at and read which helped to show some of the history of Venice and... More

The museum is well worth your visit. We needed a break in our busy tourist day and found the coffee shop upstairs at this museum and felt transported to a elegant century. (We who love Venice read Donna Leon's novels).

It's a nice extra to have as an addition to the Palazzo Ducale's entrance but I would never buy the ticket t view this museum alone. It has some nice attractions and it is very large but it holds nothing impressive overall. If you're on a tight schedule, skip it even if you paid for it in the combined ticket... More

It is a kind of "all in one" art museum. You'll find everything that is related to art (except for music) in there.
