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.

What a collection! Goodness. Beautiful gardens. Nicely done exhibition space. Easily a good half-day out for the art curious, historically minded and/or modern enthusiasts. Staff are exceptionally helpful and courteous. (Image: Calder, Silver Bed Head, '45-46)
The staff here were great, and love to see some of the works by famous modern artists. It's worth a visit for that. A huge minus for allowing people with big prams in though. The corridors are quite narrow as it is.
Peggy's taste in art...abysmal. how come I can't throw gobs of paint at a canvas and make a living? Because I don't have a Peggy G. Peggy herself .. absolutely fabulous! Her life story is the real inspiration.
If you like modern art.This is for you. Beautiful setting on the Grande Canal. We went on a rainy day so could not view the garden and memorial were she and her many dogs laid to rest.
I personally don't like modern art, but my expectations are that modern art lovers are going to like it. It has a big variety of artistic pieces from different styles, for everybody's taste, both paintings and sculptures, with permanent and special exhibitions. It also has a wonderful view on The Grand canal.
