  • It was a real thrill to see up close the works of Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Constantin Brancusi. And an exhibition of abstract art and Impressionist who absolutely deserves to be seen.

  • Very interesting collection in a beautiful house and garden, just next to grande canale! You'll not be disappointed! 
  • Lovely gardens here where we were given an interesting talk on her life. The position is right on the Grand Canal so don't forget to step outside for the stunning view. Mostly modern Art, a rather spl...  more »

  • An engaging collection from a number of notable artists. The outside spaces are beautiful, even in bad weather. The space is compact and gets busy quickly - we recommend arriving early to see some pieces in a quieter atmosphere. It would have been great to have more information about each piece or Peggy herself in the way of a guide, but without a doubt a definite must-visit.
  • 15 euro unless 65+ then 13. Written guide is 5 euro, audio guide is 7 euro. I got audio guide and would recommend written. It was crowded. There are sofas to linger in some rooms but mainly house is small and you are standing on top of the artworks. Be sure to walk outside on terrace facing canal and linger in patio. I wish I had time to have a coffee and absorb the atmosphere in the café but did buy wonderful earrings and souvenirs in gift shop. Memorable visit.
  • One of my favourite museums/collections that I've seen anywhere in the world. Very nicely selected pieces and laid out in a nice fashion. The location itself is lovely with a great view and patio out onto the canal.
  • Excellent selection of modern art in a fantastic location. €15 cover is reasonable and the gallery wasn't too busy when we went. Highly recommended!
  • Small but crammed full of treasures. It's always very interesting to see works that have been selected lovingly, rather than what conventional galleries feel are important. The space is gorgeous and we nearly cried seeing the shrine she made for her dogs. Brilliant gallery.
