VENICE MUSEUMS - VENICE ITALY MUSEUM - VENICE

Venice Italy MuseumsVenice Museums – If you love the arts and music then you will love the museums that Venice, Italy is so well known for. The dominance of Venice for so long between the 13th and 19th Centuries means that the city now has a wealth of treasure of great antiquity. We list out a few here but believe me there are many more.

The Venice Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Oriental Art, both have an extensive collection of paintings. You could spend hours in this building and see only some of the marvellous paintings of these most talented artists that are represented. You will also wish to see the Peggy Guggenheim Museum and the Correr Museum for even more unrivalled art paintings.

Peggy Guggenheim Gallery
Palazzo Venier dei Leoni

At the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Dorsodura you will find a stunning collection of modern art. Peggy Guggenheim, the American heiress, lived in Venice in this building. She brought her extensive collection of sculptures and paintings to her house. When she died in 1979 her Foundation developed the Museum and it is now one of the leading collections of Modern Art in the world. Famous modern painters and sculptors such as Picasso, Chagall, Mondrian, Kandinski, Dali, and many more are represented here. This Gallery is next door to Accademia (see below)

Accademia Gallery
Campo della Carita
Accademia

This is the Art Gallery for Venetian Art – and one of the most visited attractions in Venice. There are paintings from the 14th to the 19th century. It is a collection of Venetian art. For those not heavily into Art, it is well displayed in a number of rooms with the paintings in chronilogical order. Accademia is devoted to Venetian paintings. With paintings by Venetian painters such as Titian, Tintoetto (some of his amazing St Mark paintings) and among them a Canaletto (one of only three in Venice – the rest were sold abroad by his patron), this is a treat not to be missed. Almost next door is the Guggenheim gallery.
