We were lucky enough to,attend a free talk which was just starting when we arrived. It was interesting and informative and the young lady knew her stuff. It is a lovely museum. Go outside on the terrace for great photo opportunities.

With the range of exhibits everyone should find something appealing, ranging from Picasso, Miro to more classical this is a truly stunning collection.

Great Palazzo. Art well displayed. We were there for a Jackson Pollack presentation - not my favorite, but he was Peggy Guggenheim's. Brilliant collection in a great setting and area

On a rainy day in Venice we took the kids over to Dorsoduro to experience modern art. Like the other Guggenheim museums around the world, the Venetian home of Peggy Guggenheim is filled with interesting and thought provoking pieces. It is always fun to try to explain the deeper aspects of cubism or surrealism to an eight year old. The... More

Great collection of avantgarde art, a must-see in Venice. Also, it's a nice contrast to everything else in the city

The whole experience is simply wonderful and to be marvelled at. Peggy Guggeheim was clearly a woman of great intellect, taste and she, with her family have left an art collection for all who appreciate fine art to appreciate and enjoy. Fantastic!

Took a break from the hurly burly to visit the former home of Peggy Guggenheim. Saw Jackson Pollock exhibition. She sponsored him. Lots of imaginative modern art, some outside.
