Peggy Guggenheim Collection - Review
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
I won’t lie I’m not an art expert, no I’m the complete other extreme, in fact if you asked me about artists I’d only be able to name a hand few, those would be famous because there were films of their lives. So I went here as a complete art novice, one name I knew instantly however was Salvador Dali, never in my life did I think I would see genuine works of art by Dali. Well that’s what I saw, multiple works of art by Dali, so enthralled was I with this notion, little else mattered. We spent a few hours here, looking at art, enjoying the story of Peggy Guggenheim by her art and her furnishings. It was all quite fascinating to me, lovely pieces inside and out. Strong, knowledgeable staff all of whom spoke perfect English, even if they were not native speakers. The complex is quite small, but winding enough to fill a void of time while showing you phenomenal art pieces. My experience of similar is normally quite dull, Guggenheim clearly was intelligent a lover of art, but she clearly also had a good sense of humour, some playful humour really comes out at you during your visit.
Don't bring a bag with you unless you feel comfortable placing it in a locker. They don't tell you until you are ready to walk into the gate after you've paid that you have to put it into a locker. There was a key to the locker that you hold on to, so it wasn't that big of a deal. It was awesome to see some Picasso's and the Salvador Dali. There were several Jackson Pollock paintings and several other famous pieces. It was well worth seeing. When we went, it wasn't very crowded. The audio headset was well worth the money.
If you appreciate modern art, I would definitely recommend coming here. This was one of my favorite stops on a recent trip to Venice. The collection itself was wonderful, the entry price was very reasonable, and it's off the beaten path some, so there are less crowds to deal with. It's also situated right along the Grand Canal, so you can enjoy some great views of Venice right out the back door! Worth the visit in my book.
I had a lovely experience at this quaint museum. Between Ms. Guggenheim's superior collection and her beautiful palazzo, it is hard for even an art novice's soul to not be touched by the charm of this space. The staff were also warm and informative. I went on a tour with a young American, Monica, who was brilliant and a captivating speaker. My few hours here will be a wondrous memory from my time in Venice for years to come.
A lovely residence with a calm central garden & courtyard. Simple gallery setting with a collection of artists on display. Beautiful waterfront views are worthy of a visit alone.
