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 Museo Correr is another of the buildings surrounding St. Mark's Square. An amazing collection of art and artifacts.

As part of your entry to the Doge Palace your ticket also gives you access to this museum but it didn't have the same WOW factor as the Doge Palace. One tip for this museum is that there is a Café on the upper floor where you can have a coffee or lunch and , if your lucky, get a... More

The Museo Correr is very large - effectively about 3 museums in one - and it needs considerable stamina and a careful plan to see it all! I suspect that many of us go there initially because of the shared ticketing system with the Doge's Palace, but it deserves better. The State Apartments are excellent, the Canova display is informative,... More

Very well preserved apartments of the Sissi. A very large museum including some wonderful exhibits of Venetian art and history. There is a lot to see here. There is also a little cafe on site overlooking the square, although I found the staff member to be a little unpleasant.

This is really 3 museums in one and seems to occupy most of the upper floors on the west and south side of St Marks square. It includes the restored rooms from Napoleonic and subsequent years, as well as extensive art and archaeology collections. Well worth several hours.

It would be easy to think that once you've seen the Doges Palace and St. Mark's Basilica, that's about it in St. Mark's Square. But no, this extensive museum is well worth a visit and included in the Museum Pass that gets you into the Doges Palace anyway. Awesome palace rooms with lavish furnishings and numerous works of art. There's... More

There is so much in here that it's almost overwhelming. The royal palace was itself a delight - starting with an amazing, simple ballroom. Then we have the museum. Then the archeological museum. Then the two rooms of the library. By which time the pictures upstairs - many of them masterpieces no doubt - didn't get the attention they should... More

We bought our package tickets (Doges, Correr, etc,) early one morning at the Correr. It is a very interesting museum, many different displays of a variety of subjects. NOT just an art museum. Located opposite end of St Mark's Square from the Basilica. NICE BATHROOMS.

The museum is in a magnificent building that is on two sides of Sam Marc's Square. There is, once again, a mass of art and historical items on display. It is a bit of a warren and it is easy to miss parts. Worth an hour or two.

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.
