Most people come to a museum for the art inside. And with masterpieces on par with the Louvre, it doesn't disappoint. But the building alone is worth the trip. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it is one of the world's most unusual feats of architecture.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is a nationally recognized landmark and one of the 20th century’s most significant and unusual architectural structures. Whether the museum’s contents are as impressive as the exterior remains to be decided by the individual visitor, but it is certain that you will not leave this building without feeling 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 Guggenheim’s astonishing galleries are home to the works of Cézanne, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Pissarro, and Renoir. From Impressionist and Post-Impressionist, to sculpture and the Avante Gardes, this museum truly has it all and is an art-lover’s paradise.

Take in the magnificent colors and textures that make up the permanent collections of Guggenheim, such as Peggy Guggenheim, The Thannhauser Collection, The Karl Nierendorf Estate, The Bohen Foundation Gift, the Panza Collection, and others. Visit such special 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”, another special exhibit, is a multi-media study of the artistic relevance of language and translation and is fascinating even for those who don’t claim to have a love of art.

The Guggenheim is a truly international art house, and while New York is certainly 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 standard museum layout, which arranges artwork by genre, instead opting to display the art holistically and 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. 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, and a visit to the Guggenheim is the perfect opportunity to spend a day reveling in their splendor.

Tourist scam!
By Marc from Netherlands on
Cons:
Unfriendly Personnel Gugenheim Is A Tourist Of Rip Off For Tourists Almost No Paitnigs Shown 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
