The Guggenheim Museum in New York City is home to an extensive collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, early Modern, and contemporary works of art. Located on the corner of East 89th Street and 5th Avenue on New York City’s beautiful Upper East Side, the museum’s ever-expanding collection includes significant pieces from artists like Vasily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock, and Pablo Picasso. Perhaps the only thing more breathtaking than the pieces housed within is the building itself, which is a veritable work of art in its own right. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright at the personal request of Solomon R. Guggenheim, the museum’s elegant open-air atrium and magnificent rotunda are a sight to behold. As you walk the circular ramp that winds its way around the space, you’ll be taken on a fluid journey past the museum’s impressive collection. A visit to the Guggenheim Museum is an essential New York experience you’ll remember forever.
