How to book tickets for the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice.
Located on Venice's Grand Canal, the museum is often cited as one of the most significant - and eclectic - collections of modern art in the world.
The collection of early 20th century European and American works is housed in a pleasantly intimate setting and has become one of the most visited attractions in Venice. It is ordinarily open all year round (closed just the 25th and 26th of December, plus each Tuesday) and is located in an interesting artistic area of Venice, looking out directly onto the Grand Canal.
The Museum is open from 10.00 AM (last entrance time 4.45 PM) from Friday to Sunday.
The top collection of American and European 20th century art in Italy, this museum was created by the American heiress Peggy Guggenheim (1898-1979.)
Most of the important pieces were collected in London, New York and Paris in the late thirties and early forties, with the advice of artists and critics.
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is housed in her former home on the Grand Canal, the Palazzo Venier dei Lioni. Since 1980 it has been open to the public with many temporary exhibitions as well as masterpieces from the Hannelore and Rudolph Schulhof Collection, the Gianni Mattioli Collection and the Nasher Sculpture Garden.
