My high rating is based on what i believe this museum deserves. It is well laid out, the sculptures in the gardens are interesting and when you walk into the main building you are greeted by a lovely Picasso. But in order to really enjoy the place, you have to like Kandinsky, Mondrian, Dali, Max Ernst and Jackson Pollock. While... More

We enjoyed this collection in a wonderful setting. Some amazing art in one place. Had a tancredi parmeggiani exhibition there as well.

First of all, do not go to the Peggy Guggenheim Collection expecting a MOMA experience, that's not what the collection is about. It is more about one woman's commitment to late 19C and early20C art and how this is wrapped up in her life and experiences. This is a relatively small collection but in a stunning setting. It begins with... More

The house has a great view of the Grand Canal and some of the art collections it holds are really amazing. However, it's not the best and not worth the expense.

I very much enjoyed seeing early works from many artists I love (Rothko, Kandinsky, Klee, Pollock, Calder...) but they were clearly not their best works. Friendly and helpful guides throughout the museum were happy to answer questions and provide information - a great plus.

A wonderful collection of modern art in a beautiful building. Many great artists are represented in particular quite a good collection of surrealists, Magritte, Dali etc.

After 4 days of touring palaces, museums, art galleries and churches in Venice we were all Tintoretto'd and Titian'd out. What a nice change to walk through the relaxing galleries of Peggy Guggenheims old home and see some lovely modern art.

Some of the pieces of art displayed here are fascinating and well worth seeing, but the exhibition is a fairly small collection (for the relatively expensive price of entry) and although it's interesting to see it displayed in the collector's former home, the house is not a natural shape or layout for a gallery. There's no clear flow of movement... More

Although I'm not that big a fan of modern art I really enjoyed this place. There are works by lots of modern artists displayed in what was Peggy's home. It's an easy layout & the paintings have a very good description with them. There are sculptures in a garden & you can see where Peggy is laid to rest with... More

Great to visit a museum that is in the actual residence of Peggy Guggenheim, an early supporter and collector of modern art. This is a very personal collection with some of the art actually hung as she planned. The terrace on the canal is fantastic. No reservations required at the time of year we visited - November

Staying in Dorsoduro / Accademia

Neighbourhood Profile
Dorsoduro / Accademia
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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. Neighbours exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
