Museo Correr, Venice: 12 reviews and 18 photos
Teodoro Correr is responsible for creating the museum and the many treasures it holds. He was born in Venice in 1750, and worked as an administrative official. Most of his life his ambition was to collect valuable and antique pieces. The city of Venice started the exhibits of the collection in 1922, and it is mostly laid out in the Napoleonic wing. The museum has three parts, including the collections in the main museum, archeological and Biblioteca Marciana. The Correr section contains a huge impressive ballroom and throne room on the first level. The next level holds coinage, armory, information of the life of Venice during its sea empire, and many art works and statues form the 14th century through 18th century. The archeological section has Greek and Roman collections. The Biblioteca has many religious order items and and paintings and books of that order.
