New Feature!



Frank Lloyd Wright's enormously influential spiral structure is a dynamic addition to a tony stretch of Museum Mile. The building layout was designed to influence the way museum-goers experience the paintings, sculptures and multimedia pieces exhibited within, and the echoing atrium provides a good dose of drama. Sample exhibitions include works by modernists like Paul Klee, Kara Walker and Nam June Paik. Ever the powerhouse, since its 1959 Manhattan debut, the Guggenheim has gone global. There are now branches of the Guggenheim in Venice, Italy and Bilbao, Spain. An additional outpost is currently underway in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. 1071 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY. 212-423-3500





Insider Tips

Ten Best Logo 03 Local Expert Says:

"Befriend a member of the museum to check out Art After Dark, seasonal events that start after-hours, around 9:00 p.m., and are typically centered on exhibitions or programs. There is a cash bar plus hip tunes spun by local deejays and friends of the artists."

Best for Museums Because: Since its 1959 Manhattan debut, the Guggenheim has been a global powerhouse displaying the world's best contemporary artists.
