Museo Correr Reviews
I didn't initially have this wonderful museum on my 'to-do' list when planning my Venice vacation. Happily, because it's part of the pass to the Doge's Palace and St Mark's we ended up spending a good... more »
Nous avons pris le pass pour plusieurs musées de la ville de Venise et nous avons commencé par le musée Correr. Nous avons été déçus par l'accueil (on fait une queue énorme pour le passage sécurité!) ... more »We took the pass for several museums of the city of Venice and we started with the Correr Museum. We were disappointed by the reception (we do a huge line for the security passage!) and then by the presentation of the works. No audio but sheets papers in each room, an order of the rooms not easy and above all I thought the story the city and it's more a bric to brac of lots of different topics. Damage
Man sitzt gemütlich, auch lange, kann seinen Laptop herausholen und wird nicht komisch angesehen. Tolles Interieur und toller Blick aus dem Fenster. more »One sits comfortably, too long, can pick out his laptop and is considered not funny. Great Interior and great views from the window.
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.
