Get to Know the Guggenheim Museum with ART SMART

Discover the Guggenheim in NYC on a Private Tour

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York City is one of the most well-known art venues in the world. Boasting locations around the world, the name Guggenheim is synonymous with spectacular collections of modern and contemporary art.

The New York museum is made even more stunning by its architecture. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the building features a striking white exterior and a spiraling rotunda inside.

Though the Guggenheim is recognized as an incredible museum, it can often seem intimidating to those without a background in art. That’s where ART SMART comes in; our private museum tours make the museum accessible and fun for everyone.

Learn More with a Guided Art Tour

Knowing where to begin can be difficult. Maybe you’ve never been to the Guggenheim Museum before. Maybe you have checked it out once or twice. Maybe you’re bringing your kids to the museum for the first time. No matter which category you fit into, the best way to maximize your museum experience is with a guided tour.

Each ART SMART Guggenheim tour is completely private and custom. This means the guide’s full attention is dedicated to you and your specific interests. We listen to your preferences and craft a unique tour route that is entirely catered to you. If your group wants to see the museum’s top highlights, we’ll show you a mix of special exhibitions and pieces from the museum’s rotating collection. If your child is a budding artist, we can inspire him/her with the new “A Year with Children 2019” show featuring art by students around NYC.

Real Art Historians, Fascinating History, Memorable Experiences

We understand that basic tours given by museum lecturers are often dull and can turn people off of art. That’s why ART SMART’s approach is different. We choose guides who have studied Art History for years. They’re always up-to-date on the latest exhibitions and research. We also choose them for their vibrant and engaging personalities. Each of our guides excels at sharing information in a fun, fresh way. You’ll hear quirky anecdotes, scandalous tidbits (for adult ears only!), and fun facts about your favorite artists and works that will leave you hungry to know more.

Our guides can also adapt. If you see something during the tour that you want to spend more time on, your art guide will be able to change the direction of the tour without missing a beat. With a guided group tour this simply isn’t possible, as the docents are forced to stick to a particular route and can only answer a limited amount of questions.
