Accessibility for Visitors with Limited Mobility

Due to technical problems, the platform lifts are temporarily out of order.

The museum can be easily reached from the Accademia, Salute, and Zattere vaporetto stops (thanks to the ACTV public transport system and local administration).

  • The museum grants free admission to visitors with limited mobility and their carepartners.
  • Wheelchairs are available at the museum free-of-charge to visitors.
  • Museum staff are available to facilitate the visit.
  • It is not possible to access the museum directly from the Grand Canal.

The museum is accessible through platform lifts: one lift accesses the garden (seven steps); one lift allows access to the entrance of the palazzo where Peggy Guggenheim lived and where the permanent collection is on view (eight steps); one lift gives access to the museum café (four steps); another lift allows access to the temporary exhibition galleries (nine steps).
The museum’s barchessa (where the Schulhof Collection is on view) is directly accessible from the garden.
Three steps without a ramp lead to the internal Museum Shop, whereas the shop outside the museum is directly accessible.
