A centre for artists, writers and performers, with some of the best museums, theatres and art galleries in the world, an Art trip to New York – one of the world’s most exciting cities - makes the ideal educational visit.

While the Guggenheim houses Impressionism, Post Impressionism, Surrealism, Minimalism and twentieth century movements, such as conceptual art.
