The Guggenheim Museum NYC

The Guggenheim Museum in NYC is open to donation of choice (we each paid $1) on Saturdays after 5 PM.  The line wraps all the way around the street corner.  There's strictly no photography inside the museum designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, which is a bit of a bummer, but understandable.

The James Turrell exhibit was interesting.  He transformed the atrium into a light exhibit which looked really cool from the bottom, but it caused the rest of the building to be really dark.  One of the most interesting things about Frank Lloyd Wright's design is the circulation of the building.  However, I felt that it was obstructed by the light exhibit.  I'd like to go when that's not in place to see how the building really looks from the inside.
