The Correr Museum in Venice has been developed along fascinating thematic itineraries on art, culture and history of Venice. In addition to this, the elegant rooms of the Museo Correr in Venice accommodate a large collection of sculptures by Antonio Canova, pieces of ancient art and a Venetian art gallery.

The history of the Museo Correr in Venezia began with Teodoro Correr, a descendant of a noble Venetian family who bequeathed to the city of Venice his important art collection and a place to displaythem to the public. After several reorganizations, transfers and new acquisitions, since 1922 the Museo Correr has been located in the elegant Neo-classical Rooms of the Napoleonic Wing of the Procuratie Nuove in St Mark’s Square.

The start of one’s visit to the Venice Correr Musem – in the Napoleonic Wing - includes some environments, which show a fascinating example of neoclassical art, with fittings and decorations to the French taste without forgetting the traditions of Italian art: the vestibule, the Napoleon loggia, the Ballroom, the Throne Room and the Dining Room.
In line with the neoclassical style of these rooms in Venice, the Correr Museum Canova finds his ideal location: the Neo-classical Rooms are the perfect location to fully appreciate the art of this great sculptor.

The Napoleonic Wing also houses the rooms of the Empress Elisabeth of Austria, the famous Sissi who starred in several films and novels. The apartment of Sissi at the Correr Museum is made up of nine beautiful rooms in which the Austrian sovereign resided during her stay in Venice.

On leaving the Napoleonic Wing - entrance to the Museo Civico Correr in Venice, Italy - the tour continues along a fascinating itinerary through the history of Venice divided by themes: the Doge, the sea, the weapons, everyday life, crafts, parties and games. Among the exhibits include: manuscripts and printed books dating from the sixteenth and eighteenth century, a dedicated room in the Arsenal of Venice - which houses a rare example of a 'view' of the Arsenal usually protected by military intelligence - and on to Bucintoro; floor plans and maps that depict the urban development of Venice and some rooms dedicated to Francesco Morosini - one of the greatest admirals in the history of Venice.

Among the collections in this section of the Correr Museum in Venice, the numismatics play a very important role: grouped in a chronological order visitors can admire almost all the coins minted by the Republic of Venice from the ninth century until 1797.

The visit to the Museo Correr, Venice then continues to the 'Wunderkammer' a sort of 'cabinet of curiosities' of Venice lagoon that includes more than 300 works from the collections of the city museums of Venice. Sacred art objects, bronzes, paintings, prints and drawings from various sources, rarities and oddities that continue throughout the nine rooms of the Correr Museum that were completely rearranged in 2013.

Considerable attention should also be given to the great art gallery of the Museo Correr, with works by Venetian painters from the origins to the 16th century.

From the fourteenth century, with the introduction of the Gothic art in Venice by Paolo and Lorenzo Veneziano, to the fifteenth century with the International Gothic artist Michele Giambono and Jacobello del Fiore; from the influences of Cosmè Tura from Ferrara to the transition to the Renaissance culture thanks to Bartolomeo Vivarini, the Museo Correr in Piazza San Marco in Venice, Italy holds true masterpieces that tell the evolution of Venetian paintings, the influences that incurred, and the extraordinary artists who have profoundly made a mark on history.

In addition to numerous works of Flemish art, among which the Adoration of the ThreeWise Men by Pieter Brueghel il Giovane should be mentioned, some of the most famous artists exhibited at the Correr Museum are: Antonello da Messina, the Bellini, Alvise Vivarini, Lorenzo Lotto, Vittore Carpaccio, El Greco and Michele Damaskinos... important names that make this museum of Venice an unmissable destination when holidaying in the lagoon.

'Everyone should visit here!'

Ticket
Museums of St. Mark's Square

We were fortunate to be able to go to Italy/Venice during the off season, so there were less tourists/shorter lines. Get this pass, so you can get in quicker. Also, this pass includes multiple museums, so it's a great dal/price. It was a little confusing at first, as you had to cash in your voucher first. But, there was good English speaking customer service personnel, so they gave great intel.

Strenghts

Multi places included. Beautiful place. No pictures allowed

Weaknesses

No pictures allowed. Some places included in multi pack were places we didn't want to/have time to go to. Visit to cell-Bridge of Sighs was not clearly marked.

Dear Susie Q,

thank you for your feedback! Please note that both online and on the voucher, we specify that you are required to change the voucher into a physical ticket at the ticket office of the first museum you will visit… We regret this was not clear enough to you! Concerning the Bridge of Sighs, we can assure you that it is included in the standard path inside the Doge’s Palace therefore you would have been able to visit it without any problems!

Best regards,
The Insidecom staff

'Excellent service'

Ticket
Museums of St. Mark's Square

Booking tickets for the Dodges Palace online meant we didn't have to queue. It was really smooth and easy and a great experience to see. Also included in the price were tickets for museums on the square. Unfortunately we only had time to see one of these, but if we'd stayed longer we could have made even more use of them.

Strenghts

Simple to book and can use them for multiple museums and avoided the queues.

We were only in Venice long enough to see a couple of the museums on the pass, but Dodges Palace was worth the price alone.

'So easy'

Ticket
Museum Pass

Very straight forward ticket collection with voucher at Doge's Palace early in morning before the queues had built up and then easy to access some very interesting museums included on pass. All had great facilities and very well kept informative collections. Places we managed to visit over a long weekend were: The amazing Doge's Palace, surprisingly large Correr Museum, fascinating Glass Museum on Murano, classy Casa Pesara (Modern Art and Japanese artefacts), beautiful Ca Rezzonico (18th Century palazzo). Fully recommend buying a Museum pass and I would do it again.

Strenghts

Ease of collection; peace of mind, value for money; several beautiful museums well worth seeing

Weaknesses

Some museums were not included but are on the map i.e The Clock Tower. Also two museums are within the Correr Museum anyway (Archaeology/Library)

Dear KLW,

thank you for your kind and detailed review! As for the museums included, please consider that they are indicated both online and on the voucher issued at the end of the online reservation. On the voucher there is no map showing the museums, so it is not clear to us where you found the map with museums not included in the Museum Pass. Please send us further detail at info@insidecom.it.

The Museums of St Mark's Square does not include the museum upstairs in St Mark's Basilica. The museums that are included are very nice to go and see. They provide some needed relief from the summer sun and heat.

'Welcome to the 21st Century'

Ticket
Museum Pass

We purchased 4 tickets on-the-go. Afterwards we realized that we needed to print them but, of course, the museums don't have the facilities and the people who were working there the day of were rather dismissive of our predicament. Almost 100 Euro straight down the drain. Even with the emailed confirmation we were barred entry and, in this age of digital technology, that was completely inexcusable.

Dear SavvyTraveller,

we are deeply sorry about what happened. Unfortunately a paper copy of the voucher is required by the Venice Civic Museums and therefore we have to comply with their official regulations. The necessity to print the voucher is specified on venetoinside.com before the beginning of the online reservation procedure, as we are transparent in conveying this important information to our customers… We regret you missed this important detail but hope that your comment will help other travellers to avoid the same omission.
