The circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building is as much of a draw as the museum's collection of modern art.

Visit the building not the exhibits

What an amazing building. Really fun to walk up around the 'peeled orange' structure. They have different exhibits there- we saw On Kawara's, did nothing for me, but I was really... read more

Building is amazing a lovely modern artistic piece of architecture and there it ends Modern art is a funny thing and beauty is in the eye of the beholder so the only way I can express it is I found very little beauty to behold . The only saving grace was the artwork of the masters .Picasso ,Toulouse Loutrec, Cezanne... More

Simply, my wife and I love art, but the Guggenheim has almost nothing currently on display. Their main featured "artist" is ON KAWARA - Silence. The artist's work takes up the entire center of the gallery, from the first floor all of the way up the spiral. It has such great artistic insights and creativity (yes, that's sarcasm) as a... More

Beautiful building. I enjoyed the Thannhauser collection which included Van Gogh, Cezanne, Picasso, Renoir, Monet, and more. For me, those pieces and the building itself was worth the entrance fee BUT, my tween beeged me to leave. Can't blame him really, as most of the art (with the exception of the Thannhauser and Monir Sahroudy collections were...obsessive compulsive and strange... More

We went here expecting great things and were deeply disappointed. For the same entry price as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, we got to see just a few admittedly brilliant 19th/early 20th century paintings and a rubbish exhibition by an artist seemingly comprising various evidence that he was still alive. It was nice to see the inside of the building... More

My wife really wanted to go to this museum because she loves Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. I saw the 3.5 stars but made the error of not reading further and was very disappointed in the exhibits. 5 floors of gibberish and no real art at all. The Wright exhibit was pathetic considering his contribution to architecture and design. IMHO don't... More

Well a lot of people have complained about the museum but I differ from their opinion. This museum is a landmark of us architecture. The building design is amazing and I truly loved the exhibit.

Often inhabited by weird and not so wonderful exhibits the real reason to visit the Guggenheim is for the glorious building itself. this building is one of the all time great designs by one of the all time great architects and its worth the entrance fee to just stand and admire the interior. The permanent pictures are decent if not... More

We choose to visit the Guggenheim as the second museum stop of the day - traveling with a 9th and 6th grader. We wanted to be sure we didn't overly program too much museum time and came here after a few hours at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as an antidote as the space is fun and radically different from...

If you're interested in the Guggenheim, but aren't sure if it's for you, I would recommend Saturday evening "pay what you wish." We paid $5 for the two of us, rather than $40, and were therefore free to spend as much or as little time there as we wanted. (We had planned on going in for free, as students, but... More
