Peggy Guggenheim Collection of Venice

The Palazzo Venier dei Leoni – in which the Peggy Guggenheim Collection is exhibited and where Peggy Guggenheim used to live – is located at the end of the Canal Grande, just before reaching the Bacino San Marco. It is one of the four Guggenheim museums (along with Bilbao, New York, Berlin and soon in Abu Dhabi). The palace dates back to the 18th century, which is why not only the exhibition is interesting, but also the building in which it is housed. The palace can be reached by taking the boat to one of the piers nearby or have a small walk from the Accademia Bridge.

The sculpture garden at the palace

In addition to the modern art in the palace itself, you can also walk into the garden and view some statues. Actually, from the water – the palace has a rather sober facade – you don't expect that so much beauty awaits you as soon as you enter the museum. The plants along the top edge of the building itself stand out. The railings in front of the windows and gates also attract attention from the water, and once inside also the decorative elements are very special.

The focus is on European and American art in the permanent collection, but there are also temporary exhibitions.
