There will always be wonderful exhibitions here so this is definitely worth checking out. It is not a large gallary - but it is well laid out and is right on the water so lovely to look out of the windows too!

Been to Venice so many times in last 15 years. Peggy Guggenheim collection I have seen couple of times and is interesting. Small collection, yet interesting to see her choice of art, sculpture. She loved living in Venice and this was where she lived which is now a museum.

Just loved sharing something from THIS century with my teenage daughter. (Don't know if she could handle the Salvadore Dali museum). This had all the romance and setting necessary to make a teen tune in, and she saw Picasso, Braque, Klee, Kandinsky, Dali, Chagall, Ernst, and of course Jackson Pollack. Loved taking pix on the terrace and imagining the chic... More

Loved spending a couple of hours here. Not a huge collection but many important pieces. Be sure to walk out by the canal. Enjoy!

How can one visit Venice and not stop at the Guggenheim Collection! The palace is great, spacious, bright, modern and well kept. The passion of Peggy for moden art collections is keeping the museum alive. In addition, staff is multilingual (mainly American), which is convenient for tourists. The location is one of the best, along the Gran Canal. Take a... More

I hadn't planned on going but it was right in the neighborhood I was staying in so I walked by it about 30 times. I finally decided to go in and I'm glad I did. I love modern art and might've been brought to tears at one point at the beauty and whole vibe of the place. Also the 2... More

This is a great space, not only because of its splendid collection of 20th century masterpieces but also because of the intimacy that brings the pictures of Mrs. Peggy Guggenheim when she lived in here. No need to say that you coul find masterpieces from Picasso, Dali, Calder, Pollock among other masters!

The museum located on the Grand Canal, is small, quaint, and packed with great, modern art pieces. This area of Venice is beautiful. You can do the museum in an hour easily.

This is a testament to a great lady who understood and loved art, she lived by her wits, not as wealthy as her surname sounds, but lived an amazing life supporting the arts in many ways, she is buried in the museum's garden along with her nine dogs...

A beautiful palazzo on the grand canal - Peggy's beloved pet pugs are all buried here - very unique - totally modern art and an extension of the beloved Guggenheim museum in New York City Note: there is an entrance fee!

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighborhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
