Follow the spiral of this building to – Follow the upward spiral of this building to room after room of intriguing exhibits. The Guggenheim once had a "Scent Opera" and is taking a more avant-garde direction as of late.
This Frank Lloyd Wright-designed masterpiece of a museum ain't so bad on the inside, either. The museum's collection includes a generous array of works by Cezanne, Manet, and Picasso as well as other kid-friendly artists.
What I loved about this place other than the fact that it was the Guggenheim. I loved their purposeful attention to the young artists. Art stations were set up among the exhibits that encourage young artists to explore their creativeness with colored pencils & pastels. Floor mats were available to keep them comfortable and happy. Kid friendly books were available to read, look through, inspire or keep an uninterested little one amused. Another exhibit showcased all kid made art from neighboring schools. No extra fees for audio tours.
Such an Amazing Building with Interesting Exhibits – Everytime I've been to here, I've seen interesting and beautiful pieces of art from Architechture to Modern pieces. And of course they have their Van Gogh's and Picasso's that we all enjoy a peak at here and there. The architecture of the building in itself is breathtaking.. Walking around the Museum up a ramp... But you are better off starting from top to bottom and walking down instead of hiking...
