|About these ratings|
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, or simply, "The Guggenheim," is one of the most well-known art museums in the country, and it's just as renowned for its cutting-edge design as it is for its pieces. The coiled building (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright) stands out on Fifth Avenue at 89th Street. Inside, the halls are chocked with some of Norman Rockwell's, Pablo Picasso's and Wassily Kandinsky's best work. As one TripAdvisor user puts it the Guggenheim has, "Great art and famous architecture all in one package."
Located on Manhattan's Upper East Side, you can reach the Guggenheim on the 4, 5 and 6 train to 86th Street. It's open every day but Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. Admission costs $22 for adults; however, on Saturdays the museum stays open until 7:45 p.m. and features a "pay what you wish policy" from 5:45 to 7:45 p.m. You can visit the museum's website for more information on current events and featured exhibitions.
