Peggy Guggenheim Museum

This is a much visited museum housed in the unfinished former Palazzo dei Leoni on the Grand Canal.  It has a very extensive collection of American and European art from the first half of the twentieth century.  However, unless you are particularly interested in contemporary art, it may not be worth the expense and queues, although it does have a lovely garden.
