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.

We planned to go here exclusively for the Calder exhibit. Unfortunately it had closed 3 weeks earlier. I didn't interpret that when I researched the exhibit online beforehand. That said, we enjoyed a few of the exhibits. We also loved the large open spaces, the...More

The Whitney is a great building - lots of open spaces, Windows with city views and outdoor space. Like most modern art, contents varies from the mundane to the challenging and the moving. The floor dedicated to the art of protest was particularly poignant.

First time in new building. Enjoyed every minute of the visit. Have seen the permanent collection many times and enjoyed seeing it again. The Laura Owens exhibit was definitely a hightlight.

The new site for the collections of the Whitney Museum is an airy, open structure in lower Manhattan, adjacent to the High Line and close to the river. The exterior of the building is striking. Inside, it's a large featureless box with occasional windows and...More

The new building has provided opportunities for many new smaller exhibitions, in addition to the more conservative permanent collection. The best little gallery is unfortunately hidden off the main lobby, a nondescript hallway between the elevators and open stairs, and the restaurant. Great views, great...More

The kind of exhibit makes a big difference in one's view of the quality of the museum - sometime its terrible.

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.
