Highly recommend the museum to anyone visiting Venice especially those pressed for time! Smaller museum and sculpture garden however collection is exceptional. Artworks from Picasso, Braque, severini, Miro, pollock and Kandinsky to name a few! You can buy informative booklets or hire mobile guides for some of the main artworks. Easy to wander around without a guide. great views of... More

Modern art doesn't appeal to us, but seeing Peggy Guggenheim's home on the Grand Canal was worth the cost of admission. You were able to envision Peggy and the likes of Picasso here out on the terrace or maybe in the garden. It was also touching to see where her ashes are interned next to her beloved dogs in the...

The last time I came was 16 years ago and I enjoyed it. This time it was even better. The sculpture garden is masterfully arranged with several main pieces of artwork that blend in with the surrounding superbly. The garden also helps to make the museum more able to accommodate people. I remember that 16 years, the main gallery was... More

What used to be Peggy Guggenheim´s mansion by the Canal Grande has been turned into a lovely mid-sized museum exhibiting an exquisite collection of modern art classics. Whether Ernst, Picasso, Mondrian, Giacometti or Rothko, Peggy had them all! Wonder through Peggy´s former living and dining rooms, her library as well as her patio right by the Canal and enjoy what... More

Although I'm a fan of some modern art, this had too much of the type that only works if you buy into some story about why lines your child could draw are somehow great art. Some interesting pieces but not enough.

This is a smaller art museum, with a sculpture garden. Many examples of Henry Moore, Calder, Pollack, Picasso, Dali. There is a small cafe where you can get a reasonably priced snack or coffee. If you like modern art, this is a must see in Venice.

I was a bit anxious as my husband is not known for his enthusiasm for modern art but he was absorbed by everything. As a plus the gates were really imaginative. The disabled lift was interesting as I got stuck in it and no one knew how to get it open. A knowledgeable American helped.

If you are at least a little interessted in modern art such as Picasso or Max Ernst then I'd strongly recommend you to visit that exhibition. Entry fee is quite okay with a student's discount and there was a short presentation refering to the life of Peggy Guggenheim for free which is pretty nice for some background information. :)

Thank Markus B

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
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 in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
