If you're tired of all the crowds on the streets, yearning for some greenery and something modern - in contrary to everything else in Venice - then this is the place to go. Many great artworks and a relaxing atmosphere make this museum a great visit.

This is a gem of a collection set in an astounding location. I had visited Venice before and spent time exploring the venetian art and history. This visit I made time to visit the Peggy Guggenheim collection (which I just hadn't gotten to before), displayed in what was her home in the Dorsoduro and facing the Grand Canal. The permanent...

I enjoy some modern art but I am not an expert. For anyone like me, this collection would be a waste of time without the audio guide, because you would have no idea what you are looking at. The collection is a good survey of modern art and sculpture and is a nice respite from the renaissance and religious art... More

If you are a lover of modern art then this will be for you. I was personally a bit disappointed with the art exhibition that was on at the time as it was a little weird for my taste.

Our hotel gave us two free tickets to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection so we stopped by during our visit in Venice. It is a very small collection made up primarily of modern art. The experience was neither negative or positive, we spent a half an hour viewing the house, art and enjoying the view from the outside patio overlooking the... More

I think its common for visitors to get burned out a little on renaissance art in Venice, so this collection is a palate cleanser for that feeling. I really liked the room with multiple Jackson Pollacks where you can see his style evolve in a short period of time (which I have not seen in either the Tate or MoMa... More

This fantastic art exhibition is housed in the former home of Ms. Guggenheim and indeed it feels just like that, and not intimidating at all. As you stroll round the garden you can almost feel her presence. Not surprising really once you realise she IS there, along with her treasured dogs. The number of artworks is just right, not overwhelming... More

The collection of art is of a very good level, ut sincerly i think that the spot is more special.... A palace on the grand canal with a garden is rare to be open to the public. To take the chance to visit it and to take a coffee at the bar of the useum, watching tree in a soft... More
