The Museo Correr (Italian pronunciation: [muˈzɛo korˈrɛr]) is a museum in Venice, northern Italy. Located in St. Mark's Square, Venice, it is one of the 11 civic museums run by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia. The museum extends along the southside of the square on the upper floors of the Procuratorie Nuove. With its rich and varied collections, the Museo Correr covers both the art and history of Venice.
The Museo Correr originated with the collection bequeathed to the city of Venice in 1830 by Teodoro Correr. A member of a traditional Venetian family, Correr was a meticulous and passionate collector, dedicating most of his life to the collection of both works of art and documents or individual objects that reflected the history of Venice. Upon his death, all this material was donated to the city, together with the family's Grand Canal palace which then housed it. The nobleman also left the city funds to be used in conserving and extending the collections and in making them available to the public.

Enjoyable, cooling walk around The Royal Palace's Imperial rooms. Most date back to the Napolionic era (circa 1810). There are plenty of guides around, many speaking multiple languages. There are also ample information cards, printed in many languages. Entry is included if you purchase an all inclusive ticket to Basilica, etc.

Great exhibitions, art and architecture. Well worth a visit and quieter than other more iconic tourist attractions

Nice exhibitions. The museum holds large collections of Venetian antiques, most of which unique to this place. Among all the items were a full collection of Venetian coins from its founding till its fall, which was quite stunning.

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.

Amazing inside, it's a shame all the staff apart from the lovely, bubbly and friendly lady in the cloak room have absolutely no sense of enjoying their jobs or making your visit a pleasure. Perhaps being miserable, rude and snarling at the public was part of the training. The information on the walls and most of the exhibits is in Italian, not much good to me. After amazing experiences in other tourist spots I'm not impressed

Its very pretty and is probably great fir its historical value but was just not my thing. Extremely crowded and in the month of July hot. Church rules are still oppressive of women which bothers me to much to comment further.

Naturally they do not need to adjust to people with handicap. For me with slight back problems the visit was useless as there are no places to sit down. (I need 5 minutes per hour). I still give it three stars as the things on show seemed superior to other museums in V.
