There was a Pollack exhibit and the painting Alchemy was there after restoration. The sculpture garden is peaceful and there are many painting and sculptures there. You can sit on the patio and take in the Grand Canal. I would recommend this museum.

We are not 'art folk' but this collection of art and sculpture, and Peggy Guggenheim's house (an unfinished palace) is well worth the €15. In July 2015 there is also two exhibitions - Jackson Pollock and his brother Charles, and both are included in the ticket. Wander the gardens, wander through her house, see amazing works by Mondrian, Dali, Kandinsky,... More

30 euros for 2 people to see art that looks like a 5 year old has sat on paint. Might be worth it if your one of those people that can see the "hidden" meaning in artwork, and pretend the artist intended to do thing's in certain ways. But for those of us with our heads screwed on, better to... More

Nice rather modern building with only modern art. Situated along the Grand Canal. From the museum you can stay outside and view the Grand Canal. The collection of the Guggenheim is from about 1900 till present time. There is also a part with changing expositions. At the moment Jack Pollock. Very nice to visit this place, very near the Accademia... More

What an art collection! Dear Peggy knew how to collect interesting, often challenging, art and to spend a fortune in the process. I particularly enjoyed the Severrini, the Kandisnkys and the early 20c French artists, experimenting with the depiction of speed. There were also some gigantic Jackson Pollock paintings to decipher.the whole Palazzo is also an exercise in minimalist good... More

We visited the collection because of its namesake. There were some paintings that we could come to terms with, but unfortunately there were significantly more that we couldn't. Still, a very interesting collection.

I love expressionist art so as soon as I learned of this gallery I put it into my Venice plans. I wasn't disappointed. I got to see several works from Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Clyfford Still. There are also several cubist paintings from Picasso, Braque, Delauney, and others. I highly recommend it if you're looking to do something away... More

Beautiful location, interesting pieces- could spend all day looking at some of them. As a dog lover, I really loved to see that Peggy's ashes are buried beside all those of her dogs.

Housed in an 18th century palace, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection is very interesting. The building has lovely outdoor space and a patio overlooking the Grand Canal with amazing views. If abstract and surrealist art is your thing, the collection is eclectic. If not, a visit to the palace is enjoyable. The current exhibition of Jackson and Charles Pollack's work is... More

Pleasant collection of many famous artists. However in reality we spent more time discussing some of the alternative art exhibits we saw at the venice Bienelle

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.
