Peggy Guggenheim Collection

A must visit for lovers of art, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection that is located on the Grand Canal of Venice is arguably one of the foremost of museums in Europe that are dedicated to modern art.

Visitors to this museum can find masterpieces that range in style from Abstract Expressionism, Surrealism, and Cubism. Though there are some other cultural attractions in Venice, there is no contradicting the fact that this collection attracts the maximum number of visitors.

Special exhibits are hosted over here from time to time, but the permanent collection is also awe-inspiring. They consist of masterpieces by famed artists like Kupka, van Doesburg, Picasso, Duchamp, Pollock, Klee, Leger, and many, many more. Do not miss out on the photograph of Paggy along with her house.

This museum, that was inaugurated in 1980, and which is now 3 decades old, also displays the personal collection of twentieth century art by Peggy Guggenheim. The reflections of the museum’s light on the Grand Canal at night are also an enthralling sight, which can be enjoyed by taking a trip on the gondola.

You should also spend some time to check out some of the famous exhibits like `The Angel of the City,’ a 1948 sculpture by Marino Marini.
