Punta della Dogana Information

Punta della Dogana, formerly a customs house, is a museum for contemporary art, situated between the Grand and the Giudecca canals in Venice, Italy. The building was designed and restored into its current unique triangular shape in 2009 by Japanese architect, Tadao Ando.

Today, Punta della Dogana permanently houses French businessman Francois Pinault’s collection of contemporary art. Past temporary exhibits at Punta della Dogana have featured modern artists like Pablo Picasso, and pop artists and like Raymond Pettibon, Jeff Koons, and Ed Ruscha.

Events at Punta della Dogana include corporate or private receptions and dinners held in one of the museum’s venue spaces like the Waterfront Platform, the Belvedere Roof Terrace, or the Central Cube.

Punta della Dogana also offers art school for children ages 3 to 19, Saturday afternoon art labs for families, guided tours, and educational visits for scholar groups. Private tours are available during the museum’s after-hours as well.

Fascinating Building, Compelling Artwork
Tara R. Dec 13, 2012
It’s strange and wonderful at the same time to have a contemporary art gallery housed in the late center of Venetian trade and affairs which made the Venetian Republic such a rich and powerful city-state in the first place. The building itself is fascinating as a triangular jetty jutting out into the canal, and the art exhibits the few times I’ve been are always fascinating. There was a three-meter plastic statue of a young boy the last time I was here—simple, though I don’t think anyone understood what exactly it was—and the Roman Barbarian exhibit was one of the most focused and well presented exhibits I’ve ever seen.
