NEW YORK, NY.- After an unprecedented seven months of closure, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum invites the public to return beginning on Saturday, October 3. New hours are from 11 am to 6 pm, Thursday through Monday. To celebrate the first two months of reopening, the Guggenheim welcomes back neighbors, New Yorkers, and all other visitors with expanded Pay What You Wish hours from 4 to 6 pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Through December 1, the museum will match every purchase of a full-priced ticket with a free family pass for an essential worker through the Art for the Front Line program. The Guggenheim will offer museum members and patrons preview days on Wednesday, September 30; Thursday, October 1; and Friday, October 2. Beginning on October 5, the museum will offer additional member hours from 6 to 8 pm on Mondays, in appreciation of members’ continued support through the challenges brought on by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Capacity will be limited to 25% with access available through timed-ticket entry only. Tickets are available for purchase at

Visitors will ascend the Guggenheim’s spiral ramp following one-way guided footpaths, with new signage to support the measured flow of guests and social distancing. Exhibition content including artwork labels and wall texts will be available online to allow for further engagement with the exhibitions as well as enhanced off-site learning.

For the October reopening, the Guggenheim presents two new exhibitions: Away from the Easel: Jackson Pollock’s Mural, a focused presentation of the first monumental painting by Jackson Pollock, commissioned for Peggy Guggenheim’s Manhattan home in 1943, and Knotted, Torn, Scattered: Sculpture after Abstract Expressionism, featuring a range of approaches to sculptural practice from the 1960s and ’70s, with works from the Guggenheim collection by Lynda Benglis, Maren Hassinger, Robert Morris, Senga Nengudi, Richard Serra, and Tony Smith.

Countryside, The Future, an exhibition by AMO/Rem Koolhaas, examines radical changes, many of which have taken on new relevance amid the pandemic, in the world beyond cities. The Fullness of Color: 1960s Painting explores several artists’ courses through abstraction. Marking Time: Process in Minimal Abstraction, with works by Agnes Martin, Roman Opałka, and Park Seo-Bo, invites viewers to imagine the creative process.

Other galleries feature sculptures by Constantin Brancusi, and a refreshed presentation of the Guggenheim’s Thannhauser Collection highlights Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and modern works by Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, and more.

For audiences at the museum itself, in New York City at large, and around the world, the Guggenheim has translated its Webby-nominated building audio guide into 11 languages, including Arabic, Italian, Mandarin, and Spanish. Created last year in collaboration with the podcast 99% Invisible, the guide delves into stories behind Frank Lloyd Wright’s iconic building, which was recently designated as part of a UNESCO World Heritage site. The translated guide is available for free on the Bloomberg Connects app, the Guggenheim website, and SoundCloud.

A range of digital programming including virtual talks, architectural and gallery tours, art classes for adults and families, and free teaching materials will continue to be presented through Guggenheim at Large to extend access and offer experiences for audiences in any location. The museum store will be open during museum hours beginning on September 30, with books and retail items also offered online at

The Guggenheim is implementing health and safety measures in consideration of visitors and employees and in compliance with New York State and City guidelines. Face masks will be mandatory inside the museum for anyone over the age of two. New requirements should be reviewed in advance of a visit; they are posted on COVID-19 Safety Measures: What to Expect When Visiting.
