An internationally renowned art museum and one of the most significant architectural icons of the 20th century, the Guggenheim Museum is at once a vital cultural center, an educational institution, and the heart of an international network of museums. Visitors can experience special exhibitions of modern and contemporary art, lectures by artists and critics, performances and film screenings, classes for teens and adults, and daily tours of the galleries led by experienced docents. Founded on a collection of early modern masterpieces, the Guggenheim Museum today is an ever-growing institution devoted to the art of the 20th century and beyond.

The permanent collection of the Guggenheim Foundation embodies the institution’s distinctive history, which has intersected with and catalyzed the development of 20th and 21st century art. The story of the Guggenheim collection is essentially the story of several very different private collections that have been brought together. Augmented through numerous acquisitions under the leadership of the Foundation’s directors, curators, and international partners, these collections form a unique, shared global collection that reflects the rich trajectory of art from the mid-19th century through the present.
