The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (usually abbreviated to "The Guggenheim") conceived in 1943 by the master architect Frank Lloyd Wright, opened its doors to the public for the first time in 1959 and changed the world of modern art. Its design is as innovative today as it was in the fifties, with its elegant spiral ramp entering the spectacular dome with a glass roof. Wright's futuristic hive is a highlight in the world of architecture, and the interior houses a collection of modern art, celebrating the twentieth century and beyond.
The exhibitions are updated frequently, showing a wide series of works created by new avant-garde artists and the greats of the world of culture. With free guided tours, downloadable audio guides and interactive augmented reality apps, it's a true contemporary experience: a highlight for art and architecture lovers.
