Just around the corner on Museum Mile is the unique Guggenheim Museum. Designed by legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the spiral building winds the viewer through connected exhibition rooms displaying cutting-edge and international contemporary art.

The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has expanded in recent years. It is home to some of the most impressive artworks of the contemporary world. Pushing the boundaries of experimental art as well as established icons, MoMA boasts an impressive open design and a world-class restaurant on the premises.

If you like your art more on the bohemian side, Brooklyn's premier institution the Brooklyn Museum has an impressive array of ancient Egyptian pieces (including a preserved mummy) as well as masterworks from Cezanne, Monet and Degas. Truly multicultural, it also displays American paintings and sculptures as well as Pacific and African art.
