Guggenheim Museum Tour in Venice is an half day guided tour. The Guggenheim museum is one of the most beautiful and interesting museums in Venice, and definitely worth a visit!

Every summer from 1951 to December 1979, “Peggy Guggenheim” loved to open to the public its collection of modern art. During Easter time of 1980, just a few months after the death of the patron (23 December 1979), “Palazzo Venier dei Leoni”officially reopened its doors under the management of the “Foundation Solomon R. Guggenheim of New York”, becoming the most important museum in Italy for “European and American art” of the first half of the twentieth....

Besides the personal collection of the Guggenheim, inside the museum you can appreciate the collection of “Gianni Mattioli”, temporary exhibitions and the beautiful sculpture garden “Nasher”. The museum is housed in the only building not completed in Venice, the “Palazzo Venier dei Leoni,” bought by the “Guggenheim” to create the largest “museum of modern art” of the ’50s. The Guggenheim collection is composed of works by the greatest artists of the time: from “Picasso, de Chirico, Pollock and Kandinsky to Duchamp and Brancusi.”

Works are visible in the different currents that influenced the art of the first half of the twentieth century as “Cubism, Futurism, Metaphysical Painting, Sculpture Vanguard. Of great interest is the “Gianni Mattioli” Collection, which includes artists such as “Italian Futurism” representatives”BoccioniSironiRussoloCarraBallaSeveriniSofficiRosai”, as well as some of “Morandi’s” paintings and a portrait by “Amedeo Clemente Modigliani”. The Museum continues to enhance its collections by exhibiting works donated to “the Foundation Solomon R. Guggenheim and masterpieces from private collections as long-term loans.
