Over priced, surly attendants, expensive cafe, no information given with steep entry price, that requires more expenditure. Family of four 54 euros! Art great in places. The house itself is down at heel, tacky in places, lighting poor, paving in garden crude and poorly constructed. All in all not the backdrop you would expect for great art. Building desperately needs... More

Very interestingly displayed in Peggy Guggenheims modern palace on the grand canal. Interesting collection of art. Great views. Best tiramisu of many sampled!

Beautifully set on the banks of the Grand Canal it must have made a very comfortable home. A relaxed space with some fine specimens, great cafe with super coffee and cake or more hearty fayre if you're hungry. Definitely worth a visit

The setting and layout of this gallery is superb with a good selection of modern art to contrast the renaissance art all around you in Venice. Wonderful grand canal views from balcony and a good cafe.

This collection is interesting and attractive if you like modern art; my husband does not, so he didn't think it was time well spent. It definitely shows like a personal collection assembled by an individual, and that made the visit interesting and unique. Plus, the fact that it was in PG's former home is fascinating, and the spot on the... More

The Guggenheim museum might be one of the smaller ones around but we have enjoyed it the most. The art on display was incredible with various famous artists being shown. The museum was not crowded and the views from the balcony to the grand canal are wonderful. Do give it a couple of hours to enjoy thoroughly

The Peggy Guggenheim collection is located in her former palace right on the Grand Canal with beautiful views over the Grand Canal and delightful gardens to wander through. There are master pieces from Dali, van Gogh, Cezanne, Picasso, Degas etc., and you are allowed to take photos with your I-pad. A very enjoyable excursion in Venice and a must for... More

I liked that after such an overload of wonderful but centuries old art and sculpture something from the last century was given a wonderful place to be seen and refreshingly so. Also the touristy knick-knacks were less so, and quite different

The world most delightful art gallery. You feel as though you are visiting your eccentric aunties house, that is if aunty lived on the grand canal and collected art of the most famous surrealists of the early 20th century
