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.

we visited the museo Correr after we could not enter the Basilica because of a small bag and were happily surprised

The views you get from the inside onto the piazza, cathedral and tower are worth the small cost. We did not see an elevator (did not ask) and the stairs are very high and long but... read more

This museum blew our minds. The sheer size of it all was one thing, but the amount of artwork, gilding, and design of this building highlights the power and wealth that Venice had when it was a kingdom. It is worth a few hours of your time. We wished that we would have booked one of the special tours!

The museum itself is a bit boring with lack of English translation in many cases. Though there was an interesting demonstration about the Mose Project, the flood protection system being built now.

I've been here a couple of times in the past for different exhibitions. This time they had paintings by Ippolito Caffi. Very beautiful and you must visit it. The shop is very nice and has interesting books and publications about Venice.

The views you get from the inside onto the piazza, cathedral and tower are worth the small cost. We did not see an elevator (did not ask) and the stairs are very high and long but not all too difficult. The exposition is a mix of interesting things and too much old stuff but some people may like it all,... More

We bought our ticket in Museo Correr to avoid the queu at the Doges Palace. Nice collection of ancient art, but don't forget to look out the windows!

The museum cafe has a fabulous view of the Piazza San Marco, but is run like a typical public sector outlet in Italy. Don't expect any service, and the food is poor. Try a nearby coffee shop where people care about customers and the prices are lower.

Do go to the Correr for the art - but don't expect any help from the Staff, who make it clear - in Italian - that they do NOT speak English.

In a city full of museums, it's easy to get a bit blasé - but this really is brilliant. It combines a historic palace with fantastic artefacts, wonderful paintings and an archeological museum - and more besides. Don't make the same mistake as us and leave it until last - we wished we had spent more time there. We particularly... More

The majority of visitors to St Mark's Square are mostly interested in the Basilica, the Palace and the Campanile understandably, but I highly recommend allowing yourself the time to visit this Museum at the opposite end of the Square. It is crammed with a nice mixture of artwork and historical objects covering a variety of periods and the shoo provides... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighbourhood 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.
