Beautiful location for a beautiful building, hosting a very interesting exhibition of Modern Art. We advise to end the visit at the cafe, where you can get healthy food for a good price. If you like Arts, you should go there.

Place is wonderful and masterpieces are greatly enhanced. One annoying point with children: the male guardians (male only) are over-protective and even disrespectful to the visitors and the quietness of the palazzio. Almost between you and the art you try to appreciate. To improve or to close to children.

Earlier in the day we went to their sister museum , Punta della Dogana and since the tx was good for this also we made a point to visit. Glad we did. The art probably isnt for everyone but its our style. Even if we didnt like or even get a piece, it got us talking and that's the point... More

Some very interesting art on display by a French artist, some clearly Warhol-inspired and lots of overtly political and feminist pieces.however, the majestic. Building is the star. Lovely cafe too.

I had a great time at this museum. It has an unusual system; the whole museum exhibits only one artist at a time. When I went, they were showing the works of French artist Martial Raysse. Some of his experimental works were very intriguing, yet some were definitely not his best. Despite that fact, the staff were very kind to... More

Living in Florence, you are surrounded with the Renaissance. Which is great a lot of the time. But not all of the time. If you are interested at all in contemporary art, this is a great exhibition space with a great collection. Again, it is contemporary / conceptual art. If you are someone who has uttered or thought, "My kid... More

The Palazzo is a truly beautiful building which we appreciated without enjoying the modern art on display. The staff, at the ticket office were particularly unhelpful, and when the wrong ticket was purchased, due to their incorrect advice, were really grumpy and almost rude. Not a good experience.

This is a sister gallery to the Punta Della Dogana and we visited both on a recent trip to Venice. We enjoyed this exhibition much more. A stunning building and a wonderful exhibition of sculpture, paintings, prints and installations displaying brilliant technique as well as a wicked sense of humour. Don't miss the video in the café.

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
