The Museo Correr takes its name from Teodoro Correr (1750-1830).When he died in 1830, he donated to the city his works of art.
The design and initial building work on the Napoleonic Wing dates from the years when Venice was part of the Kingdom of Italy (1806-1814) of which Napoleon was sovereign and . The site had previously been occupied by the San Geminiano Church – an ancient foundation that had been rebuilt in the mid-16th century by Jacopo Sansovino – and ran between the Procuratie Vecchie and Nuove, the two long arcades of buildings which extend the length of St. Mark’s Square and had housed the offices and residences of some of the most important political authorities of the Venetian Republic.
The most important aspect of the Napoleonic Wing, which seems to set itself in deliberate contraposition to the old Doge’s Palace, is that this residence of kings and emperors was the expression of a desire to open up a new chapter in the history of Venice.

Educational workshops and activities
On Sundays the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia organises the weekly “Famiglie al Museo” events , a series of interesting recreational-educational activities aimed at children between ages 3 and 12, that stimulate their curiosity and also involve the adults who are with them.
Families composed by two adults and at least one juvenile (between 6 and 18 years of age), visiting the Venice City Museums, can make use of the Offer for Families ‘Museum Pass’ that consists of 1 full price ticket and reduced tickets for the other members of the family.
