My husband and I happened upon a post card which showed the museum and I begged him to help me find my way there which was easy thanks to signage along the way. The museum was right on the Grand Canal and the most beautiful villa along the waterway-clearly, Ms. Guggenheim had exquisite taste in all she did and collected.... More

Immerse yourself in the story of her life and get the Peggy Guggenheim's biographie before you go and take a look at her collection and her house. What a woman!

The Peggy Guggenheim collection was fabulous. She was obviously a king maker. All of the work was by major artists and based on the year of the works, she collected these works very early in the artists careers. A must see collection!

Great villa and very cool art collection. You can imagine how it must have felt to live in the villa. Beautiful garden as well.

This was one of my favorite museums in Italy. Absolutely flawless collection, intimate setting that really gave you a sense of its history, and a very nice change from days of heavy religious imagery. The ability to sit on the terrace alone is worth the cost of admission, and next time I'll plan to spend time just sitting there and... More

Our 11-year-old daughter is the modern art fan who insisted no visit to Venice would be complete without touring the Guggenheim Collection. Her highlight was the Jackson Pollock room. As it turned out, we each found something to catch our interest here. My spouse was quite taken by the Pegeen Vail paintings and I was drawn to Egidio Costantini's Picasso-inspired... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our trip to the Peggy Guggenheim collection. The art was very thought provoking and interesting. it was also interesting to see the pictures displayed of how the rooms looked when Peggy herself lived there! I bought the autobiography from the onsite shop as I was intrigued about Peggy Guggenheim and her life and it... More

This is a mostly quiet haven which is more or less away from the crowds. Some of the paintings and sculptures are a little challenging - such as the Jackson Pollock splatter paintings. If you like that sort of thing, you'll like the Peggy Guggenheim.
