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.
Children under 12 receive free general admission with a paying adult. Therefore, Child cards do not need to be scanned for entry.

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. Visit temporary collections as The Great Upheaval: Modern Art from 1910-1918, which teaches lessons about history and social psychology in its display of the art that emerged preceding The Great War. The Deutsche Bank Series: Found in Collection is a fascinating multi-media study of the artistic relevance of language and translation.
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.
