Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Punta della Dogana
Housed in Venice's old customs building, Punta della Dogana is now a contemporary art museum. The name refers to the triangular area of the city where the Grand Canal meets the Guidecca canal, but it has now become synonymous with the building and its art exhibits. Previously empty for decades, the building was restored in 2009 by French art collector François Pinault, whose €20 million renovation showcases the building's "industrial and minimalist soul." Stand at the tip of the triangle, enjoying views of the vast sea ahead and the canals behind, before heading into the building for a look at some of Venice's finest contemporary art.

Punta della Dogana Reviews
museo di arte moderna, innovativo spesso nel genere, interessante soprattutto per i "veneziani" che in alcuni giorni hanno ingresso libero more »Museum of modern art, innovative, often in kind, especially interesting for Venetians that on some days they have free admission
Un endroit où il vaut la peine de s'arrêter en attendant le coucher du soleil et la lumière sur Venise et la Giudecca . De belles photos à faire entre ces affreux bateaux de croisière qui perturbent l... more »A place where it is worth to stop waiting for the sunset and light on Venice and the Giudecca. Nice pictures to make between these awful cruise ships which disturb the landscape and the lagoon.
Modern art! Well I just dont get it. In my opinion 20 euros to the garbage. The building is nice but nothing else. Dont spent your time and money here
Excellent view of all the edges of Venice. Very recommendable
