The Guggenheim fortune was made in mining and smelting, including Colorado silver and Alaskan gold.

The collection was originally Solomon R. Guggenheim’s personal collection. He began showing it to the public from his apartment in the Plaza Hotel. The museum was founded in 1939 under the direction of German artist Hilla von Rebay.

The Museum moved in 1959 to the iconic building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. You can walk up the spiral ramps or take the elevator to the top an unwind (which is probably what Lloyd Wright had in mind).
