Concierge.com's insider take:
Like the Guggenheim, this Midtown museum, which opened in 2001, is as notable for its building as for its collections. The exterior is a patchwork of bronze alloy panels that change hue according to the position of the sun; the interior is a series of open spaces dramatically illuminated by skylights. The 4,000-object collection spans 300 years of folk art, including intricate quilts, weather vanes, and paintings.
