There is a silent and almost respectful ambiance in this museum. Visitors enter Museo Correr by means of a staircase, originally built as a grand entrance to the Napoleonic royal palace. From here, the tour continues through neoclassical rooms, the Royal Palace, the Canoviana Collection, Venetian Civilization, Antique Art, and Renaissance Bronze. There are many sculptures by Canova and decorative objects by Francesco Hayez. Venezia by Jacopo De' Barbari can be admired in the entrance. The hours of operation may vary according to the months.

The Piazza San Marco can be a little overwhelming but at the far end of the square lies the Correr Museum. We made the Correr Museum our first stop and it turned out to be a great one since it gives an excellent overview of the history of Venice. The museum is housed in a magnificent building with an imposing staircase. We bought a two part ticket that got us into the Correr as well as the Doge's Palace so it saved us time and I think a little money. The Murano glass chandeliers, the views of the Square and the Canal all made it a beautiful and peaceful experience in the midst of all the crowds down in the Piazza. Highly recommended.
