Museo Correr - Review
This civic museum covers art and history of Venice. Its initial collection (and the building itself) was donated to the city by the famous collector Teodoro Correr. Most of that original collection was acquired from nobles selling of fine stuff in the wake of the fall of the Venetian Republic. Various bequests, donations and acquisitions added to this through the centuries. While the building’s own history is impressive (Wikipedia it), it’s the art collection that dazzles. It covers paintings, manuscripts, print work, portraits, numismatics, naval instruments, mini-ship models, maps, and military artefacts.

Museo Correr, Venice Reviews
Before reading further, know that you can't take bags into this museum. They offer free storage lockers behind the cafe, so take advantage of those if necessary This museum was way larger than I expected. They had a wide array of information and exhibits including architecture, historical artifacts, paintings, sculptures, and other odds and ends. It's worth spending a good couple hours here, though most tourists ignore this place or simply breeze through it without truly taking in what the museum has to offer. Make sure to read the information cards in reach room, which provide excellent information and background knowledge. Also, be prepared for the large size of this museum, which encompasses the "noble floors" (the upper floors) of the buildings on the south and west sides of Saint Mark's Square (Napoleon's Wing and the New Offices). Also, there is only one place to sit and rest while in the museum, since most of the furniture is original. Be prepared to be on your feet for a while. The museum also has a water closet, but can only be accessed after paying the entrance fee. This is also a great place to buy tickets to other museums since it typically doesn't have a ticket line.
Museum was OK. Many things were not translated and lacked explanation. Big difference between the quality of various exhibitions. We went to the cafe afterwards. The service there is laughable. We wanted to order at the bar but were told to sit down and that they would come take our order. We were not in a hurry which was good because it took 30 min for someone to come by. In the mean time we saw three other groups of people leave without having ordered anything. Worst service ever, but comfortable seating in cafe.
To be quite honest, me and my partner found this museum to be really dull and the staff to be extremely rude and judgemental. Some of the content was interesting, but a lot of the displays simply showed old coins, statues or paintings without giving any explanation as to their context or history. Me and my partner went to learn about the history of Venice and definitely left disappointed; I learnt nothing about the history of the city other than a few small interesting facts. The biggest part that ruined this experience however were the staff. We were wearing comfortable summer clothes as it was 30 degrees outside and we were constantly looked up and down, side eyed and openly whispered about, to the point where I wanted to leave. Completely ruined any positive aspects of our experience and I would advise against going. Amazing view of San Marco square though.
A fantastic museum set in an old part of the Doge’s palace complex. The rooms are lovely with period furniture. The art is heavy on the religious side with many Madonnas with Jesus. All very well displayed. Also several fantastic libraries. Well worth a visit. Plan several hours. Lots of walking. Signage is a little weak.
Nice museum, ticket was included with our Doges Palace ticket. I would highly recommend taking a coffee here or something. The cafe is nice and overlooks St. Mark’s square and is not ridiculously up charged like many of the places in St Mark’s square.
