Time Out says

Esoteric and avant-garde, the Prada Foundation is an art museum and cultural think tank in a grand palazzo.

In a stately 18th century palace overlooking the Grand Canal, Fondazione Prada aims to examine, per its mission statement, “intentions and relevance through an evolution of projects” involving visual art, cinema, music, science and philosophy. For lovers of contemporary art, this seasonal venue promises daring and inventive exhibits, plus pieces from Miuccia Prada’s extensive private art collection.

Time Out tip: Make it a palatial day with trips to neighboring museums in equally gorgeous palazzos: Ca’Pesaro and Palazzo Mocenigo are both close by.

Ca’ d’Oro: For Renaissance art and Venice’s most delicately-carved façade
Cantina Do Spade: For wine and cicchetti with shabby-chic ambiance.
Rialto Fish Market: For commerce and chaos in on of Europe’s oldest seafood markets


Address: Calle Corner 2215

Opening hours: Mon, Wed-Sun 10am-6pm
