This is a small museum and can get quite busy, so plan to visit early in a day. We were there in June and there were several school excursion groups sitting on the floor in couple of rooms making it difficult to enter some of the rooms. Never the less the museum is worth visiting and the views from the... More

This collection, by Peggy Guggenheim (American mining heiress), of work from a range of 20th C artists from Picasso to Jackson Pollock, via Dali, Giacometti and Ernst, is well worth a visit even if you're not hugely into such work.The location is fabulous; the scale is small and not overwhelming and the glimpse into Guggenheim's life is revealing.

In fairness, this is Peggy Guggenheim's home and not a purpose built gallery so perhaps we were unrealistic in our expectations. The gallery is small and the range of work limited. The garden,with it's sculptures, was pleasant. Don't expect too much and you may be pleasantly surprised.

A bit hard to find but if you are lost in Venice it is still great! The mansion and the art are not fun to see. Her grave is located near the graves of all her dogs. Great views of the Grand Canel! She certainly lived a different lifestyle.

There are a lot of paintings by well known artists here but frankly they are not the best. The building itself is much nicer. If you are into modern art this is a must see but otherwise it is quite expensive to visit so give it a miss. There are so many other things to see in Venice!

We've all been to places with X thousand exibits that overwhelm (Hermitage, Louvre?). This museum is focused and accessible, and for anyone with teenagers (limited attention span,, even more limited appetite for all that 'boring' old stuff like Tintoretto, Titian, Boticelli etc) then this is a great place to go. The most poignant this was to discover that Peggy is... More

A beautiful setting to enjoy a great collection of modern art, the views from the terrace along the Grand Canal were fabulous. However, as the room space is smaller than some, the amount of people given access really impeded our enjoyment of the collection. Each room, was very busy and therefore the opportunity to study and enjoy the art was... More

It's hard to go wrong when you have an amazing collection of modern art set on the Grand Canal in Venice. The gardens are beautiful, the little restaurant is pricey and the service slow but look where you are. Just breathe and enjoy! Don't forget to pop in to the gift shop for some unique souvenirs. Thank you for sharing... More

Well worth a visit if you find yourself with some spare time in Venice and like art. The entrance fee of 15 euros each was very good value in what is an expensive city. The collection includes works from contemporaries such as Jackson Pollocks, Picasso and Dali and there are free talks given by the museum staff.

This museum has a wonderful collection of modern art. The gardens contain a treasure trove of modern sculptures. The museum itself contains great works by Jackson Pollock and Alexander Calder as well as a number of others. If you are not into modern art, you should not plan on seeing this museum.

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.
