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.

“Incredible collection”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This museum has a wonderful collection of artifacts, including coins dating from the 800s. There are some beautiful paintings of Venice and the glory days of the Doges. If you like majolica, be sure to see the room with the Correr family's collection.

“Rude staff”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

My partner were looking around by entered by the wrong door, we started walking around when all of a sudden this guide started following us around as if we were going to steal something, half way she told us that we were going the wrong way, so we went out and went through the right door. She started following us and shouting at us and asking us why we were back there, when i explained that she knew we came in the wrong door and she sent us back. She kept on saying that she was going to call the police and screaming at us in Italian. I told her that i did not understand her and that she should speak in English she just carried on. My partner told her she was very rude and asked for her name she would not give it to us. It spoilt my day!!

“They have a lot of stuff”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

After you battle the crowds at St Marks, head to the other end of the square and take a look at the Museo Correr. They have Acres of Antiquities to look at, and the Museo itself is large and spacious, so you don't feel crowded. It gives you a real perspective of the day to day workings of this once powerful nation state, it's easy to spend a couple of hours just looking, and wondering.

“A great historic insight”
Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

I recommend that visitors visit the Palazzo ducale first then visit the museum. Fantatic insight to history as well as decor. Good to do at your own pace with insight information cards.

“Amazing exhibitions”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

We stopped by primarily to see the Wunderkammer exhibition, and we were not disappointed. The museum's a welcome refuge from the über-busy St. Mark's Square. Also got to see the archaeological collections, and the Bronze Age finds in particular were impressive.
