We visited the Peggy Guggenheim Collection and enjoyed it. It is not part of the museum pass so adults need to pay 15 euros to get inside and the price for people over 65 is 13 euros. We used the vaporettos to get there using the Accademia stop and then walking east to the museum. Peggy actually lived at this... More

This collection of modern art was wonderful comprising many works by Picasso, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollock amongst others. It took us about an hour to get round. We felt it was a little expensive and was not as wheelchair friendly as we had expected from their website.

This museum has a great collection, both in terms of the number of works from well known artists and the variety of unique pieces, as a result of Peggy Guggenheim's firsthand relationships with many of the artists. Shortly before our visit, I watched a documentary on Peggy Guggenheim. I recommend learning about her life prior to visiting since it will... More

Peggy Guggenheim collected 20th century paintings and sculpture that is showcased in her former home that sits on the Grand Canal. The garden surrounding the home is filled with wonderful sculptures. Peggy's ashes (along with her many dogs) rest in the garden. We wandered in the house and garden for an hour and a half - enough time to enjoy... More

Dragged my husband and 10 year old son here! It is a piece of total calm in the madness of Venice. Lovely garden to park the non art lovers in and a wonderful romp for anyone who appreciates modern art or just wants to spend time in the cool learning about this amazing woman and her collection. My son loved... More

The permanent exhibition here (based on Peggy Guggenheim's own collection) is fantastic - pretty much all still in the rooms where she first put them; clearly a very personal collection - and some real gems of modern art (as well as others that left us rather cold). The views from the villa across to San Marco; the excellent restaurant/cafe; and... More

Not expecting the Peggy Guggenheim Collection to be more than a nice but quick stop while in Venice, my mother and I were blown away but not just the incredible pieces of art Peggy Guggenheim had amassed while in Venice, but also the extraordinary beautiful and peacefulness of the place itself. Her palazzo-turned-museum is quiet and calm and filled with... More

I wanted to visit this gallery and booked tickets online. Collection is very interesting, if you are art lover - especially - modern art lover. To see artworks of Picasso, kandinsky, Pollock, ect. was very impressive for me.

If you get tired of all the Tizians and Canalletos, go to the Guggenheim. Located on the slower side of the Grand Canal, with a nice garden and a decent gift shop. My favorite were several Polocks.

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.
