What's a Guggenheim?

Get a taste of the five Guggenheim museums from around the world at www.guggenheim.org. You'll find a variety of awesome exhibits and collections. View more than 200 artists' works in Venice, Italy, without having to float down a canal. The museum in Berlin, Germany, lets you say "Guten tag" to your friends with a Guggenheim e-card. Even if you can't speak Spanish, you can still enjoy the awe-inspiring architecture in Bilbao, Spain. Hop on a 1969 Harley-Davidson Easy Rider Chopper under the bright lights of Las Vegas and ride toward the highway. Your trip isn't complete until you hit the museum in New York, where you can explore anything from film to jazz. Future art critics and world travelers alike will love this site.
