About Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice
The American heiress Peggy Guggenheim made collecting tasteful art and hosting seasonal exhibitions a habit of hers. She lived here, at the 18th century Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, for over 30 years, and her influence has elevated the museum to a premier modern art museum. Picasso, Calder, Ernst, Pollock, Dali, Chagall, Giacometti, Klee, and some Italian Futurists – they’re all here. Over 400,000 people visit yearly, making it the second most popular building in Venice after the Doge’s Palace itself. Picturesque and elegant, the museum continues to collect art to this day. Her furniture and garden are nothing to be sneezed at either. Visits to the museum will also illuminate the woman who made it all happen, and the tragedy of her family life.

Peggy Guggenheim Collection, Venice Reviews - Write a Review
Very interesting collection. Particularly those who like interpreting abstract art. A lot of the collection needed the right mindset to indulge the artists.. It was a good and pleasant experience. I'd advise the physical or audio guide to provide more information during the tour.
A "who's who" of modern abstract art, incredible collection. Good audio guide. Not so large as to be overwhelming, although even off peak (in October) there were a lot of people and it felt a little crammed. Lovely garden and cafe. Recommended.
This place was a very moving experience for me. It perhaps was a highlight of visiting the entire beautiful city here. What moved me was the personal picture of Ms. Guggenheim that I felt. And it was touching to look at and read some of the personal pictures and notes from prominent artists to her.
Fantastic collection of contemporary/modern cubist, surrealist and abstract art. Absolutely loved the fascinating temporary exhibition which doesn't cost additionally to your entry ticket. Discounted price for students. Good layout and lovely terrace overlooking the canal to take a sit down half way through. Informative plaques. No queue for entry even in the height of August tourist season. Lovely cafe and gift shop too.
Nice little gallery, you can see the whole thing without getting footsore. The house & grounds are a beautiful setting for the paintings and sculptures. The surreal & abstract art are interesting for the uninitiated. Situated in a nice corner of Venice (they're all nice).
