On October 21, 1959, the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York opened its doors to the public as one of the masterpieces by the great architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his only work in New York City. The Museum is recognized among the most important modern art museums in the world.

To celebrate its 60th Anniversary, the Museum has extended its opening hours starting January and throughout 2019. The Museum also has planned special events, exhibits and appointments open to the public that intended to guide the audience through the discovery of the Museum's History and Heritage from those first opening years to today.
