DESCRIPTION

New York’s Guggeheim Museum is a swirling atrium filled with modern and contemporary art and an architectural icon nestled beside Central Park on the Upper East Side. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the spiral building is just as interesting and attention grabbing as the exhibitions displayed inside. The gently sloped circular space creates a near perfect art viewing experience for visitors. One major exhibition occupies the museum’s atrium space, while smaller exhibits are displayed in off-shoot galleries. The Guggenheim does not have curatorial departments dedicated to specific mediums, and it has earned a reputation for unexpected but impressive exhibits of 20th and 21st century.

General admission is $18, students with ID and seniors are $15, and children under 12 are free.

The Guggenheim is my favorite museum in New York City. Of course the MET and MoMa are wonderful but I get overwhelmed by them often. At the Guggenheim you simply stroll down the spiral and the collection is all there. The audio tour is also wonderful which I think can make a huge difference for someone that doesn’t know everything about art!

I love the Guggenheim. They always have great shows and an awesome variety of events to complement the exhibits. By far, the Kandinsky retrospective was the best show I’ve seen here, possibly even the best I’ve seen in New York. And, no matter how many times I visit, I’m always awe-struck by the building.

The first time I ever went to the Guggenheim was when I first moved to New York in 2003- it was the Matthew Barney Cremaster Cycle exhibition. And it blew my mind. I couldn’t believe a museum would dedicate its entire building to something so edgy! I loved it. The Cai-Gui Xiang show was just as crazy, with actual cars suspended down the center of the spiral. bands also perform there- I saw Beirut play in the atrium last year! amazing
