The Special Museum of the Week is the Guggenheim celebrating 60 years this month.

The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum Celebrates the 60th Anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright Building

Since its opening on October 21, 1959, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum’s Frank Lloyd Wright–designed building has inspired generations of visitors as a unique “temple of spirit” where radical art and architecture meet.

The Guggenheim commemorates the 60th anniversary of its landmark building, which was recently designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with activities and events this October.

Throughout the month, the Guggenheim will offer an enhanced schedule of tours, sketching workshops, and film screenings, and an expanded selection of architecturally themed merchandise in the Guggenheim Store.
