Commissioned by Solomon R. Guggenheim and his wife Irene Rothschild, the building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright to house the couple's collection of modern art.

The collections (currently over 6 000 pieces) are displayed in rotation: Impressionist, post-Impressionist, Dada, Surrealist, unique Kandinsky collection, Thannhauser and so on...
