“Thrilling collection and presentation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014

If you're lucky enough to have a few days in Venice this museum belongs on your itinerary. Picasso, Dali, Pollack, and Warhol are all here along with others. The small grounds are beautiful and there are several spots for great photos. Don't miss going outside on the terrace facing the Grand Canal.

“Back to the future in old Venice - Perfect Fusion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

If you like Modern Art you will be surprised by the great "pearls" you can find in here. Surrounded by an old Venice, which makes you feel in another age, this museum will bring you back to other times of humanity.
At the same time, it was the house of Peggy, with an amazing garden and view to the Grand Canal. Perfect Fusion!

“Great way to spend a couple of hours...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Lovely gallery with permanent exhibition that ranks with the best of modernist art anywhere in the world. Also small but interesting sculpture garden. The visiting exhibition when I was there was ok but it is really the Miro, Rothko, Klee, Pollock, Ernst pieces you should go and see.

“Broaden your mind - explore your emotions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Spend 3 hours here and you will have a new understanding of modern art, in all its forms. The descriptions and help are excellent and the layout is superb.
As for the art, well, it is breathtaking, even if you don't understand it all, and I certainly didn't. I shall have to return.

“If you visit only one art gallery in Venice make it this one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

This is a beautiful gallery with a lovely garden and we found the story of Peggy Guggenheim's life fascinating. All the facilities were very good with a lovely cafe too and for us oldies the fact it was mainly on one level was perfect. There were lots of knowledgeable staff available if you needed advice. This was one of the highlights of our trip and we would love to return one day.
