My husband was desperate to get to the Guggenheim Museum. Not because he is a big art fan, but because he is into architecture and design - and the Guggenheim building is fabulous to look at.

After a walk through Central Park, we popped out onto 5th Avenue and walked up to check out the museum.

Just look at it - you can't help but be impressed by this unique building.

Worth a look even if you just take some photos of the outside like we did, though I hear the art inside is pretty spectacular too!!

Address: 1071 5th Avenue (at 89th Street)
Directions: To reach the museum by subway, take the 4, 5, or 6 train to 86th Street. Walk west on 86th Street, turn right at 5th Avenue and proceed north to 88th Street.
