I loved this gallery for its scale, which was small and domestic (being in PG's home) and her very specific taste in painting and sculpture. It gives a great contrast to all the other incredible art in the city.

Lovely location, light and airy, friendly staff with excellent audio commentary. Collection with a very personal feel for Peggy Guggenheim reflecting some of the very best of 20th century art and sculpture. Excellent cafe and shop. Didn't dislike anything!

This place is a must see , I am not an expert on modern art but just loved our visit to this museum. In feel it reminded me a little of the Barbara Hepworth museum in St Ives. The garden is a delight we were fortunate enough to visit earlier in the day and enjoyed the museum in what I... More

We're not really into ultra-Modern Art, and some of the exhibits left us scratching our heads, but it was interesting nonetheless. Well worth a visit.

Its a beautiful view across the canal, if its a sunny day spend a few minutes sucking up the scenery, i wished have another few hours to pass there. The museum is ordinary compared to the rest of venice, not worth the money! But the canal is!

Modern art is not really my cup of tea but this is a stunning collection. My partner, who is more of a fan, would have spent all day here if we had let him. It is in a lovely building and whilst a small collection, there is no doubting the quality of the exhibits.

Visited this place twice now it certainly didn't disappoint. There's some famous pieces in here and some lesser known. I think it;s good to know a little about Peggy Guggenheim and the history of the place.

Loved the collection. Wish we had given ourselves more time. We spent the first hour in the visiting show and then unfortunately ran out of time for the Guggenhiem colledtion itself. Give yourself a few hours. Loved the old photos in the cafe as well.
