Ca' Pesaro - Review
This 17th century Baroque marble palace houses one Venice’s 11 civic museums. The architecture by Longhena is sufficiently impressive, with a balanced and powerful Sansovinian influence. Pretty frescoe decorate the ceilings. Once, the building held a magnificent collection of the Pesaro family acquisitions – this has since been auctioned off to London. The city council now hosts the Museum of Modern Art here. Most of the collection, covering about 12 halls, focuses on Italian painters and particularly Venetian ones, right from the works of masters to WWII and post-WWII and contemporary works. There’s even a hall for the sculptures of Adolfo Wildt. The upper floor of the museum is dedicated to Oriental arts, with about 30000 pieces from Japan, China and Indonesia.

Ca' Pesaro, Venice Reviews
Wonderful, a lot of great art gathered in one place. I was absolutely amazed by it, also the place has the great atmosphere which lets you contemplate the art. I would love to come back here!
We had the distinct pleasure to visit this historic building. They had a special request exhibit of Fiorucci fashion from the 70's and 80's. Phenomenal. The other permanent exhibits were fantastic. Great place to visit!
I popped in here last week. It's relatively small, with a bunch of 19th/20th-century modernist art on the ground floor, a special exhibit with some modern art on the second floor, and an exhibition of oriental loot on the top floor. The collection isn't very large but has some big names, notably Gustav Klimt, Joan Miro, and Antonio Donghi. When I went the special exhibit was dedicated to disco-era fashion throwback Fiorucci. The oriental exhibit is relatively gloomy, slightly hard to access (narrow stairs) and feels less loved than the rest, although there were some neat boxes. The lobby has a piano which appears to be freely-available to passers-by. It also has a surprisingly large cafe that isn't all that expensive. I have to admit I went mainly for the cafe, because it was baking hot at the time; a chicken bun and spritz came to about €12 off the top of my head, not awful for Venice, and the spritz was nice. It's on the waterfront and if you get a nice table you can gaze at the canal traffic in relative comfort.
A great collection of art to see. The cafe is also very chilled, and has amazing views of the canal!
Good exhibition space, very nice oriental collection (issues with air conditioning on that floor). Permanent collection of modern art is not worth it, don't get fooled by big names
