Overview

The museums part of Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana are currently closed to the public. Both museums will reopen on April 9, 2017. Inaugurated in 2006 and 2009, Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana are two contemporary art museums. Renovated by Japanese architect Tadao Ando they present personnal and collective exhibitions. Palazzo Grassi and Punta della Dogana aim to share with the public the extraordinary Pinault Collection and to strengthen the priviledged relationship the institution has developed with artists, especially thanks to works specifically conceived for its exhibition spaces. Since May 2013, the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi complements this artistic and cultural programme. Conceived by Tadao Ando, this 225-seat auditorium offers a wide range of events - conferences, concerts, screenings - that underline the will to establish a dialogue with a Venetian and international public.

This has to be seen to be believed. The theatre of the so called salvage, the beauty of his innovative sculpture, the whole Damian Hurst concept - just mind bending and fantastic. You must pay this a visit to open up your mind.

We visited this exhibition yesterday. It was interesting and very well executed. We particularly enjoyed the films of the 'recovery' of the items from the seabed. It is quite remarkable just how many items there are on display.

Genuinely one of the most transporting shows I've seen - pop culture and mythology clash in such an incredible way. You must see this show.

Centrally located, the Palazzo Grassi now hosts the Damien Hirst exhibit "Treasures for the Wreck of the Unbelievable", as spectacular as it is confounding to the art maven. A must experience when in Venice.

Like many other stops in Venice, this give you another place for pictures as well as enjoy the sights of what makes Venice a nice place to be. Can be crowded at times. You can board gondolas at this place as well.
