Stunning location & collection

Loved the photos showing Peggy living in the villa. Great collection of mid 20th century art and lovely garden of statues. Visiting changing exhibitions

We loved the villa and the sculpture garden. We love surrealism but there's a limit to how much Jackson Pollock one can take. Surprised to see a Warhol we actually liked

Dragged in here against my will, full of modern scribble. Sorry not my idea of art. So I wasted precious time here.

Who goes to Venice to see Pollick? Well maybe that's the clue here for the indomitable Peggy G. Subtle and well done, the grounds and the exhibitions are well developed and set up. So I liked it - my wife loved it.to. Get me back to Michel A and those other guys.. those guys.

At last you can get away from Renaissance Art and spend a quiet morning appreciating 20th century Art. There's not too much, so you can see the whole thing in a few hours and have time for lunch or a coffee in the delightful - and very reasonably-priced - cafe in the walled garden.

I am very keen on modern art so this was a top place for me to visit when in Venice. There are works by Picasso, Jackson Pollock, Dali, Kandinsky, Twombly. It's a small place and can at times feel cramped (when groups of guided people are gathered around a work of art). It also makes a change to see works... More

We walked here from our hotel near the Rialto bridge which a good excuse to explore the quieter streets of Venice. The museum has a beautiful location over the grand canal which you can enjoy from the house's riverfront though you may find a children smiling at the rather phallic equestrian sculpture you're keeping company with. The museum is Guggenheim... More

This is a peaceful and different kind of museum from the rest of Venize. Situated by the Grand Canal with a quiet garden it is worth a visit.

I am not a lover of modern art... But I did enjoy seeing the art... But I loved seeing the palazzo and thought it was a truly lovely setting... Enjoyed sitting in the courtyard and seeing the house on the canal.

Peggy gungenheim museum in Venice is well worth a visit just for the colorful personality of Peggy if not for her modern art collection. Hidden away, the muzeum is not too difficult to find. There are no discounts for students and the entrance fee is €15. Not only is the collection interesting for any modern art lovers, it also provides... More

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.
