The perfect escape on a hot Venetian day. The collection is open even on Monday, when most of Venice's museums are closed. We enjoyed the sculptor's garden. The elaborate permanent collection display pictures by Picasso, Dali, Pollock, Chagall, Margit, and many more. Till the 31st of August you can see 120 pictures from a private collection of Richard and Ulla... More

Simply can't fault anything here. The collection is a joy to behold,beautifully presented and in context. The jetty on the Grand Canal which allows uninterrupted views of all that Venice offers is was an unexpected bonus,and thus it is no surprise she located the gallery here.

The contents of the gallery are, of course, worth visiting in their own right, but the history of the collection and the insight into the life of Peggy herself is well worth the admissions fee. A beautiful venue, with anecdotes oozing from the walls. Classic Caulder, and a rare opportunity to gaze at a Dali while a gondola glides past... More

Third time – charm. On our 2 previous visits, the entry line was so long, and our time in Venice so short, we gave up. 3rd time – Friday around 1PM, no line at all, we went right in, and had a lot of time to see and appreciate all the collection, which is impressive. We even took a break... More

Took an hour to drop in to see the house, was pleasantly surprised by the art exhibited. Picasso's, Pollack's, Ernst, Dali, more than I expected. Worth the time to visit.

Not being a great lover of modern art I was only persuaded to go because of the guest exhibition For Your Eyes Only, a fascinating collection of the surreal and mannerism from the twelfth century up to modern times. Magritte, Bosch, Dali Picasso and many more. And of course you have the Guggenheim collection with Moore, Pollock etc etc. Not... More

For the permanent collection, I'd rate this museum as "average." The location is spectacular, though, and there's a pretty cool temporary exhibit entitled “For Your Eyes Only: Mannerism to Surrealism.” My favorite painting was Marc Chagall's "La Pluie" ("The Rain") that none of the guidebooks bothered to mention.
