The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is one of the 20th century’s most significant and unusual architectural structures. Whether the museum’s content rivals its exterior remains to be decided by the individual visitor. One thing is certain: you will not leave this building without a new-found sense of awe and respect for the great artists whose priceless masterpieces are housed within.

Calder, Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee, Picasso and van Gogh are all here on permanent display. The astonishing galleries at the Guggenheim Museum are also home to the works of Cézanne, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Pissarro, and Renoir. From Impressionist and Post-Impressionist, to sculpture and works of the avant-garde, this museum will make a huge impression on you.

You don’t have to travel to Paris to see the works of the great masters—they are right here on display in the cultural hub of the United States. A visit to the Guggenheim is the perfect opportunity to spend a day reveling in artistic splendor.

Take in the magnificent colors and textures that make up the Guggenheim Museum. Here are a few examples of its permanent collections: Peggy Guggenheim, The Thannhauser Collection, The Karl Nierendorf Estate, The Bohen Foundation Gift, and The Panza Collection.

The Guggenheim Museum is a truly international art house, and while New York is its masthead, the museum also holds collections in Venice, Bilbao, Berlin and Abu Dhabi, allowing the museum a global flavor and keeping it totally relevant and unrivalled in the art world.

The Guggenheim Museum is unique in that it does not subscribe to a standard museum layout, which arranges artwork by genre. Instead the Guggenheim displays art holistically, in a way that does historical justice to the individual pieces and the collection as a whole. Anyone with even a remote interest in art would be remiss to skip this world-famous art institution.

Save on admission to the Guggenheim Museum, plus New York City's top museums, sights, and tours all for one low price with the New York Explorer Pass!

Tourist scam!
By Marc from Netherlands on
Gugenheim Is A Tourist Of Unfriendly Personnel Almost No Paitnigs Shown Rip Off For Tourists No Photographs Allowed
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Guggenheim Museum:

The gugenheim is open for entry, accepts the entry coupons but has almost nothing in exhibition, they decided to redo all floors of the circular part at the same time. Only a few less spectacular works are visible in the small side floors. To make it worse, routing is unclear, personnel is bullying disappointeed visitors, taking pictures, even without flash is not allowed. Pricing of articles in the shop is 3x over the top, one advantage: there they sell the reproductions of what you were not allowed to see in the museum! After visiting many top musea in the world, i felt really cheated for the first time ever in what should have been a top museum. The management should be replaced. DON't VISIT!, (go to the MoMa, that's top class!)

special with the lights, rest is boring
By Nathan from Belgium on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Guggenheim Museum:

great to spend an hour relaxing downstairs. For taking special shots you can use as profile pictures it's an original spot as well! But there's nothing to see at the museum itself, unless you are an expert in art
