The Guggenheim Museum sits on 5th Avenue between East 88th and 89th Streets. It’s just across the street from Central Park, which makes it convenient for accessing other nearby attractions but very difficult to find parking for multiple vehicles. That’s why you should charter a bus to get your group to and from the Guggenheim. Depending on your group’s size, you can choose a school bus, coach bus, or minibus. And if you want additional freedom to visit other spots before or after your stop at the museum, consider chartering a door-to-door shuttle service for your group.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum contains one of the most impressive collections of modern and contemporary art in the world. The art collections are curated to inspire guests to explore ideas and concepts that bridge global cultural distinctions. In addition to the New York museum, the Guggenheim also curates art collections in Venice, Bilbao, and Abu Dhabi.
The Guggenheim Foundation was founded in 1937 but it officially opened the first New York-based venue for art displays when it opened the doors to the Museum of Non-Objective Painting two years later in 1939. The foundation’s first gallery space was designed by William Muschenheim and gave visitors unique glimpses into the art of Vasily Kandinsky and some of his followers, including Alice Mason and Otto Nebel.
In the early 1940s, a more permanent space for the Guggenheim collection was designed by renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright in New York City. That location officially opened its doors to visitors in October of 1959, six months after the acclaimed architect passed away. To this day, it is known as one of the most important buildings he designed during the latter part of his career.
