Peggy Guggenheim Museum, Venice, Italy
Dorsoduro, 701, Venice, Italy, Venice, Italy 30123| Map |
Located along Venice’s Grand Canal, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum is an interesting departure from the city’s sea of Gothic, Renaissance and Rococo art. Packed with stunning works by Max Ernst, Georges Braque, Jackson Pollack, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso and Rene Magritte (among others), the museum -- a palazzo that was once home to Ms. Guggenheim herself -- boasts one of the finest modern art collections on the continent. From Surrealism to Cubism to Abstract Expressionism, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum is chock full with bona fide masterpieces -- many from the donor’s private collection. Though more appropriate for older children, the museum can inspire imagination and creativity in visitors of all ages. After strolling through the collection, families can pick up a souvenir from the quirky gift shop full of truly unique items or indulge in treats from the café.
