Peggy Guggenheim Collection (Collezione Peggy Guggenheim)
One of the most popular and prestigious museums in Venice, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection of modern art provides a welcome contrast to Venice’s ornate Gothic and baroque art and architecture. A visit here is a must for any lover of 20th-century art.

The Basics
Peggy Guggenheim, an important New York art collector who spent the last 30 years of her life in Venice, amassed an important collection of early 20th-century European and American art. Upon her death in 1979, her home on the Grand Canal, Palazzo Venier dei Leoni, became the Peggy Guggenheim Collection museum. The palazzo and sculpture garden include works by such artists as Picasso, Kandinsky, Magritte, Dalí, Calder, Giacometti, Marini, and Pollock. 

Because of the scope and importance of the collection, it’s best to visit as part of a Peggy Guggenheim Collection guided tour, or take an after-hours private tour to enjoy the art without the crowds.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • In addition to the permanent collection, the museum also hosts temporary exhibitions and retrospectives.
  • Photography (without flash) is allowed inside the museum and sculpture garden.
  • Both the museum and garden are accessible to wheelchairs and strollers.
  • The museum has a shop and a café serving lunch and snacks.

How to Get There
The easiest way to reach the Peggy Guggenheim Collection is by water: take vaporetto 1 or 2 to the Accademia stop. 

When to Get There
Palazzo Venier dei Leoni was retrofitted as a museum after Peggy Guggenheim's death, so the rooms are small and the collection is best viewed early in the day before the crowds arrive. The museum is open daily except Tuesdays.

The Guggenheim Museums
Before her death, Peggy Guggenheim donated her palazzo and art collection to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, created by her uncle in 1937. It was this same uncle who commissioned New York's famous spiral-shaped Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in the 1950s.

The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is the most important museum in Italy for European and American art of the first half of the 20th century created by the American heiress Peggy Guggenheim (1898–1979), who acquired most of her works between 1938 and 1947, in Europe and New York, thanks to the advice of friends, artists and art critics. The Peggy Guggenheim Collection, which includes masterpieces of Cubism, Futurism, European abstraction, Surrealism and American Abstract Expressionism, with works, among others, by Picasso, Pollock, Kandinsky, Miró, de Chirico, Dalí, is based in Venice, at Palazzo Venier dei Leoni on the Grand Canal, in what was once the home of the American patron. Opened in 1980, in addition to presenting the personal collection of Peggy Guggenheim, the museum houses the masterpieces of the Hannelore B. and Rudolph B. Schulhof Collection, from the Gianni Mattioli Collection, the Nasher Sculpture Garden and organizes important temporary exhibitions.
