A comprehensive survey of works from Cubism through the latter part of the century in a delightful setting on the Grand Canal. If you’re an art lover, this ought to be on your itinerary. The cafe, however, is mediocre at best and rather expensive. Cost...More

Great way to see the city while walking to the site. The Museum was intimate. Closed Tuesdays, plan accordingly. Great small museum.

We really enjoyed our visit to this museum. The collection is quite extraordinary and there was an exhibition from the Picasso Museum in Paris. We wish the rooms were bigger so you could enjoy the paintings further away but we still admired the collection.

What a wonderful collection in a beautiful space. Can't recommend this museum highly enough. An expansive collection of works from Picasso, Max Ernst, Jackson Pollack and so many more. There is just so much to see and I found so much of it took my...More

This museum demonstrates what you can do with a lot of time and a whole lot of money. Ms. Guggenheim's collection is impressive - and I do not really like modern art. Her home has been turned into a beautiful gallery. It is worth the...More

Loved it then....20 years ago and still love it now. They've added to her collection and it really is a remarkable collection of one woman's taste. We were lucky enough to see the Picasso's bathers exhibition. Although only 3 paintings they were nonetheless fantastic. Would...More

This is an excellent collection of some of the greatest artists of the 20th century. This is a small museum, I would recommend going on a weekday to avoid weekend crowds.There is another great modern art museum nearby at Dogna point.

Right on the Canal Grande! What a location...for some of the most wonderful creativity in the world. The pieces are either something you love or hate; not too much middle ground, I suspect. But I loved the architecture, and the stunning location. You can arrive...More

The beauty of this modern art collection was strengthened by the way it was presented in the beautiful rooms in Peggy Guggenheim's home. The audio guide was extremely well done and added the context to the life of Peggy as a fascinating, self-determined woman.

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
