Housed in what was the Venetian home of Peggy Guggenheim this unique collection of modern art is unmissable. Allow several hours to review the priceless works of art from such artists as Jackson Pollack, Dali and Henry Moore.

So.... Peggy lived here for 30 years and her ashes are in the corner of the garden with her beloved pets. We listened to a talk on her life by one of the interns and Peggy G truly was an incredible woman. The names of the now priceless artists that she discovered and in some instances supported is awe inspiring.... More

It just depends on what you like. We're not big contemporary art fans, but we still enjoyed the visit. If you're into this kind of art, you'd probably like the place even more. Easy to find, well laid out and reasonable entrance fee.

The museum has it all: wonderful modern art, a cosy garden, a terrace on the Grand canal, a nice little cafe, benches, a fine shop. One can understand the high entrance price in this small paradise, and the crowds too.

If you like American and European modern art, this is the place to see it. The setting is amazing (right on the canal!) and a nice place to spend a few hours. We were able to visit without tickets in advance.

I am a great fan of 20th century art but was disappointed by the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.. I am pretty sure that with the possible exception of Alex Calder's kinetic art, there are bteter examples in other places like the Met or the Quay D'orsay or the Courtald. I felt that the sculptures were better than the paintings.

My husband and I visited on a Monday around 11:00am. It was not too crowded and we did not purchase tickets in advance. I enjoyed the sculptures and the gardens. This collection is worth seeing for the period that they are from and for the stories behind the art

Opens at 10am - a walk from Academia vaporetto station - museum entrance€15 per person op. All the great artist shown in a mind blowing cornucopia of art - from Cubist to art. Some of these shown in the pictures but wind or rain this is excellent

We loved this collection of Modern art. Famous names throughout the house and in the garden too, with the work by Anish Kapoor particularly wonderful to see. Collection, setting and garden an absolute delight. I have visited here on many occasions and always find this collection captivating. The cafe had a wonderful tea menu, which I loved, but the food... More

We visited this museum as we are interested in art and sculpture. It cost €18 per person for enterence which is quite expensive but there is quite a lot of different art work in different areas to see. There is a also cafe on site which we did not use so cannot comment. I think it is an excellent collection... More

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.
