The Guggenheim Museum was Frank Lloyd Wright’s last major architectural work.

When the museum first opened, the architecture received criticism as some thought the building itself would distract from the art.

The museum was registered as a National Historic Landmark on October 6, 2008. During 2008, 1.1 million people visited the Guggenheim.
