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.

Great for Italian primitives and Icons

Lovely museum on St Mark's square with an excellent collection - especially the early paintings at the top of the building. Nice friendly café too

I certainly agree with the previous reviewer - a must see. Buy a museum pass, cost 24 Euros rather than just 17 Euros for e.g. Doges palace. Well worth it. Found the Museo to be very interesting and imposing. Some painting and restorations taking place at present. The museum can do with some reorganisation. You need to complete go back... More

probably not as popular as the main attractions, but definitely worth a visit, good idea to buy the tourist ticket which covers most of main local attractions. Very interesting, beautiful architecture, art & finds.

I think this museum is highly underrated. My wife and I greatly enjoyed our visit. Like many museums we visited on our trip, there is only so much you can see on one visit. But I would plan on spending a few hours to take in as much as possible before reaching "museum burnout".

A large part of this is walking through a home type set up. All the museums connected to the Doge's Palace ticket are in the same area and it is very large. There are statues and paintings.

This is the museum across the square from St. Mark's Basilica. The only reason we came here is because we bought a combo ticket for this museum and Doge Palace. We also had to buy our tickets for the clock tower (separate admission) at this location. I just found the museum to be unmemorable, dark, and as most people mentioned,... More

Centrally located in a beautiful building on one side of San Marco square this museum is the only to show some of the history of the Venetian republic over thousands years. As for most italian museums, it is expensive, poorly designed and organized but it has the real things in term: boats, weapons, doges dresses, paintings etc. There are several... More

The Museo Correr occupies the first floor of the southern arm of St Mark's Square. It is devoted to the history of Venice and is very much worth a visit if you are interested in the 1,000 year history of the Venetian Republic, La Serenissima.

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.
