Museum Correr (Venice)
Travel comfortably without queues, buy tickets online beforehand:
The name of the museum goes back to Teodoro Correr. He was a wealthy citizen of the city of Venice (1750-1830) whose passion and life's work was collecting things. After his death he donated all objects of the city of Venice. These included, for example, more than 10,000 manuscripts, some of them very valuable.
The Museum Correr is divided into two parts. One part contains historical objects from the city of Venice. These include, for example, weapons, maps, technical instruments, coins, statues and clothing such as uniforms and costumes from the great time of the city. A great sight are also the many ceramics, especially the vases. The other part in a gallery. Here you can see many famous works of art by artists from Venice. From some windows in the Museo Correr one has a marvellous view to the Piazza San Marco.
Famous pictures in the Correr Gallery (some examples): Giovanni Bellini: Crucifixion (1460, Crocifissione), Vittore Carpaccio: Two waiting Venetian women (1490, Due Dame Veneziane, probably the most important painting in the Museo Correr), Vittore Carpaccio: Man with red hat (about 1492, Uomo con berretto rosso). Other famous paintings include Bartolomeo Vivarini, Lorenzo Veneziano, Antonello da Messina and Paolo Veneziano. Important works of art by important foreign painters such as those from Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium (Flemish) are also among the highlights of the Pinacoteca (Pinacoteca) in the Museum Correr on St Mark's Square in Venice.
