Discover The Whitney Museum

The Whitney is one of the few museums in New York City dedicated entirely to American art. It has a distinctly modern look, with sharp angles, polished grey stone, and glass and houses an extensive collection of twentieth century American art. If you want to get a real feel for the stylistic progression, go to the National Academy Museum first, where you can see a range of nineteenth century American art, then the Whitney after.
