NYC - The Official Guide

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum


Housed in one of the most iconic buildings in New York, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s collection is filled with prized pieces. The Guggenheim always presents interesting and innovative exhibitions, and the museum’s layout is like no other, as visitors experience the artwork along a huge ramp that spirals up around the entire interior of the cylindrical building.

When are the best times to visit? Late afternoon on weekdays, and Tuesday nights when the museum is open until 8pm. Also, on Saturdays just before the pay-what-you-wish rush, which begins at 5pm.

How can I make the most of my visit? The Guggenheim offers a variety of tours, free with admission. Learn about Frank Lloyd Wright’s landmark building and the Guggenheim’s collection and exhibitions at

Can you recommend some exhibits? The permanent collection shows the 20th century’s revolution in painting, as artists embraced abstraction and impressionism. Be sure to visit the Guggenheim Collection, dedicated to the museum's extensive permanent collection.

Is there anywhere to eat? The Guggenheim houses two restaurants: The Wright, named for the building’s architect, and Cafe 3, a less formal space, located on the third floor.

Will I be able to see everything in the museum? During periods when the Guggenheim is changing exhibitions, access to the ramps may be restricted (admission is often reduced at those times). We suggest visiting the Guggenheim's website to plan ahead.
