The Guggenheim

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is housed in Frank Lloyd Wright’s spiral landmark building – where the architecture is as much of a draw as the paintings inside.

One of the most popular museums in NYC, the Guggenheim is dedicated to collecting modern and contemporary art – housing the most Kandinsky pieces in the U.S., and the largest collection of Mapplethorpe photographs in the world. The museum also has noteworthy work by masters Manet, Cezanne, Picasso and Chagall, in addition to the buzz-worthy special exhibitions presented throughout the year.

The intention of Frank Lloyd Wright’s eccentric spiral design was for visitors to ride an elevator to the top of the museum and then leisurely wind down the ramps on foot, admiring the artwork.

The Guggenheim is easily accessible by Citi Bike from anywhere in the city, so plan your visit today!
