  • Such an inspiring person - such a beautiful place and a great legacy! The museum and life story of Peggy Guggenheim are highly unusual and interesting (happy to recommend biographies in the museum shop - available in English, Italian, French and German). The garden is very relaxing place - oasis of greenery and freshness in the busy hot city.
  • Not worth its admission fee. Nice museum with works of huge artists as Miro, Kandinsky, Picasso, Tapies. Unfortunately its more of a checklist of those well-know names than a well curated exhibition. For 5-10 Euros it would be a nice to see place, but 15 Euros is simply too much - even for Venice.
