This house were Peggy Guggenheim lived is a big place divided into different expositions, all showing different examples of very fine modern art. The permanent collection includes paintings from Picasso, Dali, Magritte, Mondrian and many more. If you like modern art this is a must see.

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is an absolute must for art lovers. The setting is just glorious, on the Dorsoduro, with a courtyard at the entrance and sculpture garden, while the rear looks over the Grand Canal. We were drooling over what is a really eclectic collection covering Surrealism, Futurism, Cubism, Expressionism, you name it, she had it! Picasso, Braque, Duchamp,... More

Peggy Guggenheim was a great "picker" and managed to collect every 20th c. artist worth having...not to be missed, plus the cafe is nice, too, to say nothing of the amazing views from her terrace...

Like most things in Venice this is not cheap but in February it is reasonably quiet. Some of the works on show are iconic even the Jackson Pollock but you either like him or think he's one of the best conmen of the 20th cent art scene. There is an excellent sample of great modern art from Modigliani to Ernst... More

Great museum, stylishly curated within Peggy's home and featuring some amazing works by Picasso, Klee, Kandinsky to name but a few. Her personality and character shines through and we were fascinated to hear a bit about her from an intern who gave us a 10 minute biography in the garden, complete with photos. What an extraordinary woman Peggy was. It... More

Go early to avoid the lines. You can purchase tickets online, but you have to trade them in on site for tickets, so I don't know if you save any time. Feels crowded fast as the rooms are small. The exhibit on Jackson Pollock was very interesting. The collection is punctuated with photos of the art as they once hung... More

This is one of those museums (think YSL's Marrakesh!) that you walk into and POW, you are hit with a series of amazing paintings in a palace (Peggy's former home). Amazing! A highlight of our trip.

Absolutely stunning collection of modern art. A must while visiting Venice. Nothing more to add really. Oh, and nice coffee bar too.

The museum is situated in a very nice place, near Gran Canal. The building and little garden are charming. The collection is great - Cubism, Futurism, Surrealism - all the great representatives. I an art expert and whenever I go I try to visit art museums. This collection is really worth seeing. Many museums have great reviews in the guide... More
