Wonderful collection of modern art, shown in Peggy Guggenheim's own house. I liked how you could learn about her as a person, and see her house and the way she lived, her taste, and also the artworks themselves. Some other installations and collections were also...More

Modern art (last 100 years) collection all under one roof. Brilliantly displayed and the wonderful atmosphere in this quiet place (they call it a palace) is definitely a must visit. Just cross the Grand Canal at Academia and you're almost there. It is a special...More

I am not a fan of any of the artists exhibited in this collection, but it was still a delightful visit to learn of Peggy Guggenheim's story and walk the rooms she once inhabited. I especially loved the photos of what the property looked like...More

The Peggy Guggenheim Museum is Interesting with some great art darling but does cater more for the abstract / modern art enthusiast.

This is a must see for art lovers with a passion for both art and how it is intertwined with history. Peggy was eccentric for sure, but, you will marvel at her home now gallery !

This was my second visit to the Guggenheim and it was a delight to see so many of Peggy Guggenheim’s great modern paintings and sculpture. But we particularly enjoyed discovering a early-20th century Italian artist, Osvaldo Liccini, whose work was featured in a special exhibition....More

On a rainy afternoon in Venice we took our two boys (aged 5 and 8) with their notebooks and a pencil to the Guggenheim Collection. Their challenge was to maybe try and draw something inspired by what they saw. They were so engaged by the...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob

Hi Cary The Museum was a home so it's not very large and probably could be done in around an hour. That said, if you want to spend a bit of time looking at the works more closely you shoud allow longer. My wife is very into... More
