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.
