I have wanted to visit this collection for years. I've read about Peggy and the biographies of most of the artists she's collected. This was one of a couple of highlights of our stay in Venice. Do not miss it. We were here during the off season and the place was pretty packed. I can't even imagine trying to visit... More

Loved this gallery, all my favourite artists in one place and a bonus if you can get in for student price of €9! Cafe sells very good coffee and cake with lovely waitresses- would definitely recommend to anyone!

The galleries are inadequate for the art. Works are hung too close together. Visitors are packed in like sardines. It is not possible to step back and contemplate or even to isolate individual works. There are some treasures here but they can't be appreciated in this setting.

The collection gathered by the Guggenheim is diverse yet spectacular - from Picasso to Rodin to Red Groom. This is a must visit place in Venice.

All and all, Peggy Guggenheim's house, now a modern art museum, is warm and lovely - not overwhelming or cold and austere. It it a great location for getting up close and personal with stunning modern pieces. It is also near the university, which makes strolling in the area an even greater experience and pleasure. I highly recommend a stop... More

You come away from here feeling sorry for Peggy Guggenheim, a woman who obviously had lots of money but... Sterile surroundings (and, from photos, the rooms were the same when she lived there). There's scant information on the works and the vacuous young women working here could tell us nothing useful about what was on display. Don't waste your money,... More

Very small museum with beautiful garden. Interesting facts about PG life sprinkled around the museum- Jackson Pollack was highlighted but only a few pieces of his. Done seeing museum in less than an hour and not easy to get to. Make sure you take the right water bus or you will be walking to Academia bridge from San Marco square... More

I am not a big fan of modern art. But the Guggenheim is well down. Just across the Academia bridge. Loved the Jackson Pollack works.

I am not a modern art aficionado, but loved my visit to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. Loved that it is displayed in her home. There is a free orientation talk about Peggy and her collection in English that is presented daily. I felt the talk was beneficial to my enjoyment of the collection.

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.
