If you are at all interested in Peggy Guggenheim this is a fantastic place to visit. You can image and really get an idea about her life while she lived here.

I loved it. There was a great variety of modern art. The accompanying recorded audio toy was well done and offered great insight to the pieces. It was an excellent introduction to modern art for my son--- especially as he was tired of seeing paintings of the Madonna

So completely different to the other palazzo's along the canal. This really is a must see both for the fascinating and well ordered collection, but also the surroundings both inside and out.

I would suggest arriving at San Basilio vaporetto stop (or Accademmia) but then drifting through the streets towards it. The gallery is surrounded by a range of artists shops and galleries and it is fascinating to drift in and out of these before enjoying the Guggenheim collection.

I'm a big fan of modern art and this collection has some of the most compelling and beautiful pieces I've ever seen. The location is beautiful, from when you first enter the wrought-iron gates through to the canal side sitting area. Serious artistry on display here - Pollock, Picasso, Dali...something for everyone.

My largest complaint (and it is pretty large), is that the staff enforce respect from everyone for the benefit of all guests. There were so many children running around, snapping pictures (with their giant iPad), and loud, rude people, that it really took away from the quiet enjoyment of such great artworks. The staff literally stood by and watched.

Was recommended to go as told fab view from the roof. The roof was closed. It was quite expensive and the art is the type when you throw paint at a wall. Wouldnt go back better things to spend your money on
