This must be one of the loveliest galleries to visit in the world. The collection is an embarrassment of riches (Pollack, Calder, Picasso, Klimt, Chagall...) and the villa is a beautiful oasis on the grand canal but the thing that makes this place so special...More

I love modern and contemporary art and thoroughly enjoyed this museum very much. The setting is fabulous - a beautiful palace and garden, looking out on to the Grand Canal. My only negatives are that this museum isn't included on the Venezia Unica museum card,...More

Modern Art aficionados will enjoy this focused museum. The nucleus of the collection is art collector and socialite Peggy Guggenheim's splendid personal collection of pieces from the 20th Century artists she knew and/or supported, including Picasso, Jackson Pollack (whose career she launched), Miró, Arp, Braque,...More

Had a really nice time taking in the amazing artwork. The 2 young kids were interested to see a few bits of ‘craft’ and went back to our hotel trying to copy them! One staff member annoyed me when they asked me take the 2yr...More

Beautiful palace with such a huge private collection that is not to be missed. The museum cafe was a bit overpriced with mediocre service but the area is spectacular.

Visited during the heat wave and the relief offered by this gallery both inside and out was amazing. I can but imagine how superb it would have been living in this oasis of calm. Artwork was typical of a modern art collection. A real mix...More

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
