The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum was founded in 1937 on the Upper East Side of New York City. It is a modern art museum and very well-known throughout the world. It is the best-known of the museums operated by the foundation, and it is often referred to as "The Guggenheim". It is easy to get to at 89th Street and Fifth Avenue with your car rental in New York City.
The mission of the museum is to "promote the understanding and appreciation of art, architecture, and other manifestations of modern and contemporary visual culture; to collect, preserve, and research art objects; and to make them accessible to scholars and an increasingly diverse audience through its network of museums, programs, educational initiatives, and publications". Anyone interested in art should come down with their car rental in New York City.
The architecture of the building is itself unique. From the street it looks like a white ribbon curled into a cylindrical stack. Inside, the viewing gallery forms a gentle spiral from the ground to the top of the building. Paintings are displayed along the walls of the spiral and in viewing rooms found along the way. In 1992 another structure was added to the building. It is an adjoining rectangular structure was taller than the original structure.
