Part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is Frank Lloyd Wright’s mid-century masterpiece of modern architecture, located alongside scenic Central Park. Visit the Guggenheim Museum and see collection highlights, including works by Manet, Picasso and Van Gogh and enjoy special exhibits in the iconic, spiraling rotunda.
Is the Guggenheim Museum handicap accessible?
All levels of the museum are accessible by elevator with the exception of the High Gallery. The High Gallery, located at the top of the first ramp, has two low stairs at the entrance. A partial view is possible from Rotunda Levels 1 and 2. A handout with images of and wall texts about the works in the High Gallery is available at the Admissions and Information desks.
Do they have Verbal Description Audio?
Verbal Descriptions use precise, evocative language to convey the visual experience of artworks. Developed for those who are blind or have low vision, these guides are valuable for all visitors who seek an in-depth exploration of specific works. For instance, the description of Pablo Picasso’s Woman Ironing (La repasseuse, 1904) gives the painting’s specific dimensions and proceeds from describing its central figure—“a tall, very thin woman with particularly long limbs and angular features”—to seamlessly presenting its overall compositional features.
