Museum Correr: Unique art collection by Teodoro Correr

One of the most important museums in Venice directly on St. Mark's Square

The Correr Museum, or Museo Correr in Italian, is undoubtedly one of the most significant museums in Venice. It is located on St. Mark's Square, in the heart of the city, and is named after Teodoro Correr, a Venetian nobleman and passionate art collector of the 19th century. Correr bequeathed his extensive collection of artworks, historical artifacts, and many other treasures to the city of Venice, leading to the establishment of this fascinating museum in 1830.

The Correr Museum offers visitors an impressive journey through the history of Venice, spanning from the Middle Ages to modern times. Its diverse collections include paintings, sculptures, furniture, historical maps, coins, medals, and historical costumes. These treasures not only provide insight into the city's past but also tell the stories of its inhabitants over the centuries. 

n the galleries of the museum, you will find works by famous painters such as Canaletto, Giovanni Bellini, and Tintoretto. One of the most notable exhibits is the original statues and horses from St. Mark's Basilica, which once adorned the facade of the cathedral. They are impressive examples of Venetian art and history.

The Correr Museum is also housed in the Palazzo Reale, the Royal Palace, which was once the residence of the Austrian rulers of Venice. The magnificent rooms of the palace are adorned with valuable furniture, paintings, and decorations, offering visitors insight into Venice's royal history.

The museum's location on St. Mark's Square makes it an extremely convenient destination for tourists visiting this iconic site.
