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.

We only used this ticket to visit The Doge's Palace but it was worth the pre-booing yo skip the queues. The Doge's Palace was well worth the visit.

Strengths

Skip the queue.

Weaknesses

More costly than purchasing on the day.

I made a mistake and booked for the 26th and had to immediately book again for the 25th . It was very disappointing that the original booking was not able to be cancelled or the money refunded. We all make mistakes some time!

'Great. Is it but DON'T USE THIS SITE'

Ticket
Museums of St. Mark's Square

Used venetoinside.com to save time, and money if possible, as we wanted to visit the Palazzo Ducale in high season and had heard about the huge queues. Booked online from the hotel room the day before and paid €103 for the family. Got the email which said I had to have a PRINTED copy of the voucher - the museums don't have the capability to read a booking number on a mobile device (even though the museums use a person to check this). Not having a printer in myself pocket, I went at opening time to the Palazzo and tried to talk to the desk to see what could be done. Answered with a flat 'non' and directed to an Internet cafe that didn't actually exist (according to Google). Eventual used the goodwill of the hotel to get the voucher printed, and got the tickets exchanged only to find that the face value was €87!! So, moral of the story is: get up early, join the queue (which is manageable until 9.30 or so) and oh on the door.

Strengths

None. None at all.

Weaknesses

More expensive, time consuming, and stressful than space travel, let alone just getting tickets for yourself.

I suggest you guys not to go doge palace to issue your ticket rather go to correr museum because there is no queue to get your tickets , just show your booking and get ticket for all palaces n museums etc we only visited doge palace and correr palace because our daughter got sick and we could not roam freely but both places were so nice , Each place need at least 5 to 6 hours so better split your visits in two days , its good idea to skip the line !

'More than needed'

Ticket
Museums of St. Mark's Square

Booking was easy and getting the ticket was not too bad. Better directions to the ticket collection would have been nice. Since the pass is for all four museums, its a bit much. I would have preferred to book a ticket a la carte for whichever museum was needed.

Strengths

Easy to book

Weaknesses

Unwanted museums


Reply by venetoinside.com Staff

Dear Genie, 

thank you for your feedback. As reported on our website, the are two types of cumulative tickets and each typology has its own description explaining which museums are included. If someone is interested in a list of museums that does not correspond with those two previously mentioned, we also provide the possibility to buy the entry tickets separately.

'Disappointed'

Ticket
Museums of St. Mark's Square

We were unable to use our passes as we bought them in a hurry on our four hour stop in the city. The email from venetoinside indicates email on phone will be accepted and in our rush we did not open the vouchers to learn they had to be printed until we arrived at the museum. It left a bad taste in our mouth that venetoinside would not refund when had to leave the city without using them.

'early closing'

Ticket
Museum Pass

The pass was very useful and enabled us to avoid queues at the main museums but on the day we were in Venice the museums all closed early (15.00) to facilitate a union meeting. It would have helpful to have been made aware of this in advance so that we could have re-arranged our schedule.

Strengths

avoided queues

Weaknesses

Lacked forward warning of closures.


Reply by venetoinside.com Staff

Dear Tommy,

thank you for you feedback! Unfortunately we were not informed about this extraordinary union meeting and therefore were not able to notify our customers that the museums would have closed before the usual closing time. We apologize for any inconvenience!
