Punta della Dogana, Venice

4.2
#8 of 84 in Museums in Venice
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.

  • Museum of modern art, innovative, often in kind, especially interesting for Venetians that on some days they have free admission

  • 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.
