This place was recommended but in my view the entrance charge is too much and the prices in the cafe are also extreme. Notwithstanding the artwork are well worth a view. Very varied and interesting with a number of artworks and artists I had not seen previously.

Fantastic museum. The best part is looking at the old photos of Peggy in each of the rooms (this was where she lived!) and some of her furniture remains. It was fun to imagine living there, and wondering around. Wish they had the kitchen area available to view. As for the art: great. The night/day Magritte is incredible in person.

If you love modern art from the mid twentieth century this is a must. From the beautiful sculpture garden through the rooms of the Collection in what was Peggy Guggenheim's house the pictures and displays are an art lovers dream. There is more than enough to enjoy but you are not so overwhelmed that you end up with art fatigue.... More

The Kandinskys appealed to me. The garden area is lovely with small sculptures. Coffee not brilliant in cafe.

I nearly missed this one because the Guggenheim museums in Bilbao and New York are such spectacular buildings with such boring collections. This is the opposite--the palazzo is OK; charming courtyard--but the collection is fabulous. It's deeply personal, warm, humorous. Definitely a highlight of this trip to Venice.

I had looked forward to visiting this Gallery on my recent visit to Venice, and it didn't disappoint. The art was amazing. So was the house.....I'm sure Peggy thoroughly enjoyed living there. What a lucky lady.

I dreamt I was Peggy, when visiting her great mansion filled with the most beautiful paintings and sculptures. What a lucky lady although she lost her dad with the going down of the Titanic . No, seriously, some of the best modern art in the world is on display here.

For lovers of modern art, this is a must visit . A cool and peaceful haven away from the tourist madness of St Mark's Square.

We came here to look at the art, sadly we made a mistake. Modern art that needs more than a sentence so you can interpret it, is not for us. If you like modern art you'll love this place. The one picture we enjoyed was the Magritte but sadly that was all. What stood out for us was the terrace... More
