Despite having this name, it is commonly known as The Guggenheim, rather than a museum, it is by some called a collection house, with some amazing impressionist and post-impressionist works, and it also has important pieces of modern art and contemporary art.

An important feature of this museum is that it usually organizes special exhibitions throughout the year, being one of the best places to spend a different time away from the daily life offered by the city, giving it entrance to art and what it represents.

It is located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan. It is number 1071 on Fifth Avenue.

The Guggenheim Museum in New York is the first of the museums created by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation, dedicated to modern art. Designed in 1943, the Guggenheim Museum in New York is one of the most influential works of the great American architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The most prominent element of the building is its spiral ramp, for Wright, the ramp responded to the need to make the route of the exhibition more intuitive for the visitor.

Its exterior stands out for the simplicity of lines and the white color that makes it stand out among the ocher brick and gray cement constructions near the museum. Straight lines are perfectly combined with curved lines coming from the ramp. In 1992 a rectangular tower was added that distorts the original structure of the building.

Plasticity is one of the most important characteristics of this building, the sensation of movement that it conveys reminds of the architecture of Enrich Mendelson, this characteristic together with its interior distribution, make it one of the most influential buildings of the 20th-century architecture.

The museum’s collection has been extended over the years and is composed of works by authors such as Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Edouard Manet, or Vincent van Gogh.
