Tickets for Whitney Museum of American Art.
- Admission to the Whitney Museum of American Art
With works on display from artists including Andy Warhol to Edward Hopper, you can dive into the world of good old homegrown American art.
This museum constantly updates its exhibitions, which means you can visit multiple times and regularly enjoy new pieces on display. This is done on purpose to keep the exhibitions fresh and encouraging you to come back to see fresh art!
The museum was started by philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney as she wasn’t the biggest fan of the exhibitions on offer that were biased towards European art and older classics. She wanted to devote something to American artists… fast forward to today and it’s one of the most popular museums in New York.
With an amazing collection of 21,000 pieces of art from around 3000 different artists. The works include paintings, sculptures, drawings, photography, videos, and new media.
It goes without saying as they switch the collection around, that you won’t be able to see all 21,000 pieces in one visit, but this is also the genius of the idea…. they welcome you back! The museum is currently located in the Meatpacking district on the West Side of Manhattan.
