Bénéficiez d’une entrée au Whitney Museum of American Art, situé dans un nouveau bâtiment conçu par le célèbre architecte Renzo Piano. Situé dans le Meatpacking District de New York et près de High Line Park, le musée de 20 000 m² présente l’une des meilleures collections d’art des États-Unis, notamment des tableaux de Louise Bourgeois, Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns et Andy Warhol.
World class modern art museum in a beautiful building at a great location. Modern art by american artists-- don't expect recognizable classics here although you may recognize a few of the names. Museum is located directly at an entrance to the High Line, NY's wonderful elevated walking park. If you aren't worn out from the museum, step out and stretch your legs. The city views will not disappoint.
Lines for the museum can sometimes be long earlier in the day, but are quite reasonable by mid afternoon. Allow at least 2.5 hours to stroll past everything, a bit longer if you want to linger and reflect on this terrific collection.
I went to the wrong place to see the Whitney. It wasn't marked on the old building that the museum had been moved. When I finally got all the way to the obscure new place only one and a half out of seven galleries were open. The fire alarm had just gone off so these annoying strobe lights were flashing on and off. I needed to get out of there quickly before I got a bad migraine headache. It was not an enjoyable part of my trip.
Fantastic new museum with a great rooftop cafe. Was hoping the ticket would help me skip the long line, which it sort of did, you do have to show your evoucher and trade it in for a ticket at the ticket desk, but they let us cut in line to do that.
