  • We went there without really knowing what was waiting for us. Starting from the apartments occupied by Sissi to the archaeological objects found in Venice, this visit was a pleasant journey in time. Paintings, sculptures, books... There's some for all tastes. The little more: in some rooms the restorators work without worrying about the visitors.

  • Eclectic Museum, it accomodates statues and paintings of the Great Venetian School (remarkable a sculpture of Canova and the Pietà of Cosmé Tura) together with archaeological finds of the Roman age. Some rooms then host ancient books, globes, historical documents, weapons: An immersion in the history of Venice. For me, not at the level of other Venetian museums, but definitely worth the visit. Visit with the Civic Museum pass.

  • One ticket includes three museums - Correr, two rooms from a public library and the Venice National Archaeological Museum. The Correr Museum is a palace with a variety of artworks. It's interesting. I think that when there's a big queue in front of the Dodge Palace, it's much easier to buy a ticket to visit the 11 major museums in Venice from here.
  • This is a very large museum that requires a lot of time and attention. It is neatly organized and spread out through a large space. The museum has lots of byzantine art as well as busts from famous characters in the history of Europe. It was nice to see the large paintings, which are elaborately made with beautiful art techniques, colors and materials. My only criticism would be that some areas of the museum seemed too spread out and it is rather large so it takes A LONG time to go through it.
