Overview

The Whitney Museum of American Art, founded in 1930 by the artist and philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, houses the foremost collection of American art from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Mrs. Whitney, an early and ardent supporter of modern American art, nurtured groundbreaking artists at a time when audiences were still largely preoccupied with the Old Masters. From her vision arose the Whitney Museum of American Art, which has been championing the most innovative art of the United States for more than eighty years. The core of the Whitney's mission is to collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit American art of our time and serve a wide variety of audiences in celebration of the complexity and diversity of art and culture in the United States. Through this mission and a steadfast commitment to artists themselves, the Whitney has long been a powerful force in support of modern and contemporary art and continues to help define what is innovative and influential in American art today.

I went and saw the Grant Woods exhibit which was revelatory- who knew he had such a productive - and often, sad, body of work. I fell in love with him as an artist- much more than from just seeing his iconic picture of what...More

I enjoyed the Grant Woods exhibit, based on the other reviews I am glad I skipped the 'political art' floor. I was a little disappointed that the photo exhibit on the 3rd floor was so small. Beautiful building, nice location, great views a little pricey...More

Building is nice, big terraces with a view. after seeing the exhibits I left with a very depressed feeling. All sad subjects. I really didn't like and very boring. The political floor is not really art just provokation and remind us oldies the sad times.

Loved the building. Loved walking the High Line to get there. Appreciated the outdoor spaces/views on a sunny day. Always enjoy their permanent collection and really liked exposure to a Grant Wood I would not have expected.

Absolutely delighted with our visit to this reinvigorated cultural icon. One of the best museum buildings we have seen, with stunning views out every window, plus great facilities. All the exhibits were great, but Grant Wood totally blew us away.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

Normally, the admission is: Adults $25 Seniors/Students $18 18 and Under Free Membership costs $90, so you have to decide how often you would go, and you could then go any time and not have to fight the crowds on Friday. I... More

We went on a Saturday and there weren't any significant lines then. I would imagine that it would be even better on a weekday.
