Museums in Venice

Marciana National Library

Also known as St Mark's Library, as it lies in the famous square of the same name, the Marciana National Library is one of the most important in Italy.

It is particularly renowned for its collection of Greek, Latin and Oriental manuscripts, which are among the greatest in the whole world. The architectural structure, by Jacopo Sansovino, is also impressive and adds to the beauty of one of the most famous squares.


Correr Museum

Correr Museum

Correr Museum in Venice


The Correr Museum was born in the nineteenth century and has been moved twice since then, as the ever-growing collection became too large for the rooms it was originally housed in.

Its current position in the Napoleonic wing of the Procuratie, in the heart of the city, in its most symbolic square, gives the museum the prestige it deserves.
