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

I may have expected too much, but were disappointed

The building and story telling was great, but it focused on suffering and misery, which I assume is art. Loved the Picasso's, Kadinsky was disappointing and the soldier's not... read more

We stopped here on our bikes (right next to Central Park) as we had hired bikes for 4 hours and were riding around the park as a family. Because we had the New York pass it didn't cost us anything extra. Well worth it. The children (8 and 13) ended up stopping at the library (on the 3rd floor) and... More

The Guggenheim was one of my favorite museums in NYC. The galleries were beautifully done and very thought provoking. Very fascinating displays, a few Picassos and many other artists with unique work and vision. Very impressed!

We were really looking forward to going to The Guggenheim and after a really nice walk through Central Park we got to the museum. avoiding the queues was easy as we had included it in the tourist ticket we had bought before travelling to NYC When we got there we were really disappointed to find that only 3 of the...

Mainly reviewing to share this tip. When you enter, catch the lift to the top floor, then work your way down and around, as opposed to walking up all the way. Great Frank Lloyd Wright building design to check out, especially if your an architecture lover.

If you like modern art, you'll like this place. You might wonder why people are willing to pay so much for some of the pieces in this place. I asked myself that question. It's an interesting place to people watch, too, and is close to some other good sites in Manhattan.

I'll preface this by saying I'm not an art person. My daughter wanted to visit the museum, so we went for her. If you love modern art, you'll probably enjoy it. Unfortunately, I lack an ability to appreciate modern art so I'd save your money unless you're an art lover.

Went with a small school group and had an hour tour which made the experience much more interesting. The art is really something. I think you need the background knowledge to fully enjoy.

The Guggenheim specialty: 20th century and contemporary art. So if you're not into modern, then the Frick or the Met might be the place for you. But the Guggenheim special exhibitions are among the best in the world. And the museum itself is as magnificent a place as you can imagine to view a collection: take the elevators all the... More

One of us seemed to enjoy the exhibits a little more than the other but even if the art isn't exactly your thing (as it wasn't mine), the building itself is something to admire- Frank Lloyd Wright's Manhattan gem is something that has to be experienced.
