  • Closed for repair work. No guides mentioned this. Save your self time and energy and wait to visit. It is a little tricky to find and seems like a dead end.  more »
  • I have been there several times, the main floor allows you to immerse yourself in the life of Mariano Fortuny. Temporary exhibitions are very interesting and never predictable (loved Romaine Brooks and the divine Marchesa Casati) some rooms are actually kinda dark but is what helps make this building an atmosphere of yesteryear. Staff Attention is not always open.

  • Axel Vervoordt is the great magician of this unique place. Each floor brings a glare through the architecture and decoration of the Palace by the works presented. Exposure Intuition, the last to Venice for Axel VERVOORDT is of incomparable beauty, well beyond that of Damien HIRT to the Pinault Foundation which looks sordid and unimaginative a distant past reviewed in the world today... A work of Anish KAPOOR at the ground floor, a Basquiat in the Middle Stone room dating back over 2000 years before Christ... and everything to match. If the exhibition is over enter even when immerse yourself you in this unique place in Venice and forget this time...

  • My favourite gallery in Venice. If you go to one Modern / Contemporary art museum while you’re in Venice make sure it is this one! Located in an old factory that was converted into the palace and gallery that you see today - the building itself is worth the 12€ entry fee. The gallery contains a number of well known artists such as Moro, Rothko, Munch and Duchamp. The gallery is beautifully curated, and is like no gallery I’ve ever seen before. W
  • The curators of this museum are wonderful. They ALWAYS pout on a remarkable exhibition. Often mixing contemporary works with older works from the collection. If you like art, when in Venice you must not miss Fortuny. Biennale or not, plan to visit.
  • Quite interesting. Best bit for me was the participative art installation on the top floor where you are invited to roll clay balls and add them to a giant table full. Found the lower floors mainly dark and gloomy. Had a lot of ' hmmm - but is it art' moments. Nevertheless reckon it is worth the entrance cost. By the way, very close is a decent lunch place. Kopflers, right by the front entrance to the Simply supermarket.
  • Stunning exhibits which fit seamlessly into the old workshop building. I loved it and it’s close to the Rialto Bridge and the Guggenheim.
  • Great place to visit in Venice Always a nice surprise Cozy and inspiring 360 art, not only masterpieces
