The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY, designed by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, was completed in 1959.
A building like no other in a city like no other, the Guggenheim truly is a model landmark.
That’s why we were thrilled, humbled, and grateful to be highlighted as a “Staff Pick” in the Guggenheim Museum, NY - especially in a year like this.
New and Different Experiences
After the COVID-19 pandemic changed so many things earlier this year, the Guggenheim Museum, NY reopened on October 3, 2020.
The stunning building hasn’t changed but capacities (and visitor rules) are different than in past years.
The sort-of-silver lining in this strange time is that those who want to experience the Guggenheim virtually have more options than ever, thanks to new Guggenheim at Large programming. And of course, you can build the model at home!
Tangible, Enjoyable Experience: Build the Guggenheim
The museum's construction tested the capabilities of building technology at the time. Now you can experience this amazing building in a unique and tangible way by building your own Guggenheim Museum from our high-quality scale model kit.
Faithful to every detail of the Frank Lloyd Wright design, the swirling main building is fashioned from light Aspen wood, the newer tower of American Cherry.
Each architectural scale model kit comes complete with all required parts and clear, easy-to-follow instructions. All you’ll need to provide is a good quality wood glue, a knife to remove individual parts from their sheets, and a flat work surface to construct the model.
