See world-class collections and special exhibitions in the heart of New York City’s Meatpacking District with admission to the Whitney Museum of American Art. Explore the 220,000-square-foot (20,000-square-meter) space at your own pace, and take in a permanent collection that includes pieces by Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, Georgia O'Keefe and many others. Catch temporary exhibits from around the world as you visit stunning natural light filled galleries and enjoy sweeping views of the City skyline from the museum's outdoor terraces. The Museum is located just steps away from the High Line, Chelsea Market, Hudson River and other popular downtown attractions.
What to Expect
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.
