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.

The new Whitney building is actually lovely. Excellent views from various terraces, and good space. The art, on the other hand, is just silly. There are some excellent pieces from the permanent collection. But they seem to be using the dumbest cultural Marxism and identity...More

Visited the Frick, then visited the Whitney, our first visit to the new space in the meat packing district. Focused on the permanent collection as well as the exhibit on protest art, and both were spectacular. So many incredible Edward Hopper paintings in particular, and...More

Really enjoyed my first visit to the Whitney. The exhibit space is well laid out (unlike so many modern buildings which seem to be designed with total disregard for functionality), and the size of the exhibit is very manageable. Laura Owens and "An Incomplete History...More

We wanted to get to the "new" Whitney for a while and just recently visited. The building is exceptional and if you forgot what a sunset in Winter NYC can look like you may want to shell out the $25/p/psn price to see it. Whitney...More

We visited the Whitney Museum and were impressed by the social engagement and involvement of the exhibitions especially the exhibition dealing with protest.

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

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.
