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: Bathroom facilities, Stairs / elevator

Your ticket to the Doges Places gets you in here too, so take advantage of it.
We saw so many interesting things here and we also marveled at the sheer size of it. You think Venice is tiny and there couldn't possibly be such a huge space on St. mark's piazza. Think again, as this giant museum runs the length and width of the piazza. We liked looking out, knowing that no one seemed to realize this place was here. It was full of interesting items, but we especially liked the map room at the farthest point from the entrance. Where are all the people? It's hot in Venice, come in here to cool down and learn something of the history of the city. What an excellent discovery!

This was one of our first tourist stops while in Venice. Perhaps it's just the overall bombardment of art and antiquities everywhere, but the Museo Correr just did not have any appeal and truly we cannot recall what we had even seen there.

There is an awful lot to see at this museum and it is worth seeing too. We had a very good visit here and could have spent longer looking at all the different exhibits. There is something here to interest everyone and the coffee at the end overlooking St Marks square was an added bonus. The only mistake we made was to visit the current special exhibition of Caro's work. Still we could get out of that quickly!

The museum is huge, and it shows the different stages from the history of Venice. What is worth visit La Quadreria, where painting from Italian masters from the XIV century until the XVII century are exhibit.

The Correr was a welcome break from the hustle and bustle travelers experience in the St. Mark's Square and Basilica. There is a nice cafe that offers light fare and the view of the Square from the cafe was the best we had (great for taking a photo!). It's worth a visit!
