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 - 6.00 PM (last entrance time 5.00 PM) every day apart from Tuesday, when it is closed. Once you've selected a date on the calendar a 'Click to continue with booking' button will appear - details on pricing and ticket types will be shown on the next page.

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.

This is a unique museum, on the grand canal of Venice, displaying works by many well known artists of the mod-twentieth century.

Easy to get tickets at the museum and fast track skip the queue is well worth having. Wasn't overly impressed with the collection in the museum though.

We LOVED the Guggenheim! Such a marvellous and refreshing contrast to the classical art collections of Italy ( which we also adored!) and the site on the Grand Canal is amazing!

We forgot print our tickets but they had details of our booking and so it wasn't a problem. A truly stunning collection - not to be missed.
