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.

The museum is housed in the Napoleon Wing of the complex. The restored Imperial Rooms are elaborate and exquisite. The Neo-Classical-influenced decor is a blend of French and Italian art and tastes.

Rick Steves guidebooks stated the second floor exhibits were just OK. IF you have extra time it may be worth it. However, we went & did not feel it was worth it. We agree with Rick Steves- if you are short on time skip the second floor Venetian paintings and see the first floor only. Tip: bathrooms with no line... More

A ticket to Museo Correr is included in the entry ticket to the Doges, so we visited this immediately after. There are lots of interesting old coins, books etc. Too many marble statutes for my taste. A quick hour saw us through this, but if marble statues are your bag, then you could spend much longer in here. The cafe... More

This museum is often bypassed by tourists and, until recently, myself included. The exhibits are well displayed and varied. The Biblioteca and Archeological Museum are also included in the Doges' Palace museum pass so you should allocate sufficient time to explore all three museums as they are interconnected.

We were visiting with my partner's mother and sister and they were booked in for the Doges Palace Secret Itineraries tour which we had done before so we decided to visit Museo Correr as we didn't get here last time and then meet them back at the Doges Palace to visit it together. The best way to visit both is... More

This museum is great as it highlights many Canova sculptures that tantalize any art lovers palette. The original features along with traveling shows make it worth a visit!

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.
