There is a combination of some very early classical works here intermixed with modern abstract art. Since I don't truly appreciate the abstract, I did not give it five stars. It is not overpriced though, and is worth a visit if only to see the other classical displays.

this is one of the best collections of art from the first half of the 20th century in Europe, or the world even. It situated in Peggy Guggenheims own, little palace in Venice and you will certainly get that personal feel to it that you wont get in an ordinary museum. Not to be missed. And don't forget to go...

This was one of the highlights of our one-week trip to Venice. We hadn't planned on seeing this collection, and the entrance fee was a little higher than most, but we really enjoyed it. To the impressive and surprising art collection itself adds the charm of the villa, with its sculpture gardens and great waterfront terrace. A must see if... More

This was perhaps one of the best things that we did in Venice besides the gondola ride. Peggy Guggenheim had a fantastic collection of artwork and it was a refreshing change from artwork elsewhere. If you like Pollock, this museum is a must.

The perfect escape on a hot Venetian day. The collection is open even on Monday, when most of Venice's museums are closed. We enjoyed the sculptor's garden. The elaborate permanent collection display pictures by Picasso, Dali, Pollock, Chagall, Margit, and many more. Till the 31st of August you can see 120 pictures from a private collection of Richard and Ulla... More

Simply can't fault anything here. The collection is a joy to behold,beautifully presented and in context. The jetty on the Grand Canal which allows uninterrupted views of all that Venice offers is was an unexpected bonus,and thus it is no surprise she located the gallery here.

The contents of the gallery are, of course, worth visiting in their own right, but the history of the collection and the insight into the life of Peggy herself is well worth the admissions fee. A beautiful venue, with anecdotes oozing from the walls. Classic Caulder, and a rare opportunity to gaze at a Dali while a gondola glides past... More

Third time – charm. On our 2 previous visits, the entry line was so long, and our time in Venice so short, we gave up. 3rd time – Friday around 1PM, no line at all, we went right in, and had a lot of time to see and appreciate all the collection, which is impressive. We even took a break... More
