Gorgeous location set in lovely gardens and the collection is fantastic, definitely pay for the audio guide - tad pricey but will significantly improve your experience. Really nice staff and some quite astonishing paintings

It has that special quality of a collection put together by one person especially when that person has the taste , and funds that she did. A wonderful Kandinsky , a Pollock a Rothko as well a couple of quite stunning Brancusis .

The museum is beautifully laid out. The works well displayed and it is just so nice and relaxing walking round. The gardens are wonderful with some nice works of art too.

I loved this place, all of my favourite artists in one small but beautifully formed gallery. I enjoyed every room and outside was fantastic too with a sculpture garden to the front and then a terrace on the banks of the Grand Canal. The number two Vaperetto stops at the Academia stop which is just a short walk away and... More

This is a little gem with a good collection of sculpture and pictures. Café sadly was closed for refurbishment and the Jackson Pollack room was crowded by consecutive school parties with teachers that droned on for ever so you couldn't get a proper look. That aside really worth a visit.

This is a gem! Modern art in a palace that was Peggy Guggenheim's home for 30 years. She was a woman who fostered and brought to light some of the great modern atists: Jackson Pollack, Max Ernst. Her checkered personal histpry is also intriguing. A must for the art-lover. Guides give a short story of Peggy and the museum's personal... More

Loved this collection. Don't need more than a couple of hours to get round it, I got the guide to go round, very informative, but also tagged on to some of the groups to listen to the very well informed guides.

I have been visiting Venice since 1967 and never miss this museum and the revolving collections. The outdoor sculpture garden/pet cemetery is beautiful. I would like to see a room dedicated to her personal belongings! In the past the gift shop had reproductions of her shoes and glasses which I would like to see once again.

Entrance through an Iron gate takes you into the Museum/Gallery. Sculptures in the small garden lead you into the Galleries where art abounds. Spend a few minutes on the Terrace to watch life pass by on the Grand Canal, then back inside for the art. You will need a number of hours to get it all in, ideal on a... More
