When visiting the city of New York, one of the most overlooked attractions are the art museums. New York City has enough artwork to keep you busy for quite some time. Even if you don’t have time to make it to every art museum in New York City, a trip to at least one is going to be worth your while.
The first art museum that you should visit is the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Located on Fifth Avenue in downtown New York City, the Met boasts over 2 million pieces of artwork. This works out to about one per square foot of the 2 million square foot building. Some of these pieces of art just might be made using amaco products. The Metropolitan Museum is generally open Tuesday through Sunday. The Museum also schedules gallery talks, concerts and lectures. These take place after the Museum has closed to the public. The Museum also offers guided tours and audio tours. If you are looking for a souvenir to take home with you, the Museum also has a gift shop for you to browse through.
Another great museum that you need to visit in New York City is the Guggenheim. Like the Metropolitan Museum, the Guggenheim is also located on Fifth Avenue. The year 2009 marks the 50th anniversary of the Guggenheim Museum. The Museum not only holds valuable pieces of artwork made with electric wheels, it is also a piece of artwork in itself. The Museum was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Museum was Wrights’ last major work and took him 15 years to complete the design. The last three years the Museum has seen a major exterior restoration. The Guggenheim is open every day except for Thursdays.
If you need yet another museum to visit, the Museum of Modern Art is the place for you. The Museum of Modern Art is open every day except Tuesdays. This Museum was opened in 1929. One thing that you should know is that if you are bringing backpacks, shopping bags or any other bag that is larger than 11 x 14 inches, you will be required to check them in. Another time saver is knowing when to arrive at the Museum. The longest wait times to get into the Museum are generally right when the Museum opens. Arriving after 11:30 a.m. will result in a shorter line. Once you are inside this majestic museum, make sure to keep your eyes open for any pieces of art made with amaco glazes.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg
