Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
UPPER EAST SIDE. The Guggenheim building, with its iconic, spiraling gallery resembling a nautilus shell, is impressive in itself. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and completed in 1959, it houses galleries whose artwork ably stands up to the dramatic architecture. Featured works showcase the talents of such greats as Picasso, Kandinsky, Klee, and even artists representing the height of French Impressionism. The museum’s second floor displays an impressively growing permanent collection. A museum store and café are available as well. Note: Admission is pay-what-you-wish on Saturdays from 5:45 to 7:45pm.
