What to Expect
Visit: Whitney Museum of American Art

As the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States, the Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of 20th century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is it’s key resource. The Museum's signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
Designed by architect Renzo Piano and situated between the High Line and the Hudson River, the Whitney's new building vastly increases the Museum’s exhibition and programming space, providing the most expansive view ever of its unsurpassed collection of modern and contemporary American art. Enjoy iconic works by Edward Hopper, Jackson Pollack, and Georgia O'Keeffe in natural light filled galleries and sweeping views of Manhattan on the Museum’s outdoor observation decks.
The Whitney welcomes you to the Meatpacking District, a 20 square-block neighborhood with a bustling community of artists, galleries, restaurants, and nightlife. The Museum is steps from the High Line, Chelsea Market, and a short walk from Greenwich Village, where the Museum was founded by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1930.

Look out for the working class paintings; don't bother with Warhol

Our recent visit was a bit of a disappointment, especially the Andy Warhol Retrospective. I think Andy Warhol has become so commercialized over the years that doing an AW exhibition is an exercise in redundancy. Had I realized this I would have spent more time...More

Whitney - more than just a featured exhibit - Harbor views and walk the High Line for a peaceful experience

The Warhol exhibit was the draw for my visit, but I was equally impressed with several Whitney collection exhibits. It was smart for us to get tickets on-line before our arrival, as we were able to walk in without getting in line (even on the...More

worth an hour

Not really a Warhol fan but the exhibit really told his story well. The work is outlandish but I knew that much going in. It was interesting to see all of it up close and personal. And the Whitney Museum is worth it alone to...More

Why leave your iconic building?

First, this is not as hyped the biggest Warhol show in the US in 30 years. That was LA in 2002. (This show has numerically more objects, but it has far fewer important pieces.) And, it does not measure up to the Grand Palais retrospective...More

Awesome exhibition

I have to say Warhol is not my favorite but it was awesome to see so much of his work in one place. Many of his well known pieces are there. As well as lesser known pieces, sketches, videos and more. I never realized how...More

Admittance at the Whitney is for the day only but you will have plenty of time. You start at the top and work your way down. I took me approximately 2 hours. The reason the MET gets you admittance for 3 days is that it has... More

Need to contact Whitney either in-person, on-line or by phone and get this resolved. Normally Whitney has excellent customer service.
