This is a Frank Loyd Wright designed building and it is interesting to see. The art is always changing so you will always see something different when you visit. We saw an exhibit on Italian Futurism. It was interesting even if the artists were jerks. There are no photos allowed which is a nice change from the larger museums. We... More

Interesting museum, beautiful architecture. Eating area too small thus overcrowded. However, staff was very helpful and pleasant.

The exhibit right now is Italian Futurism. They've done a nice job displaying the pieces but the most interesting part of the museum is the architecture. The inside of the building is very interesting and it makes seeing the entire museum very easy and enjoyable. You can easily see the entire collection in 2 hours. Price is a bit high... More

This has got to be one of the most spectacular and iconic building designs ever created We took the lift to the very top and then walked down - keep a look out for all the extra little art rooms in nooks and crannies or you'll miss them !

The Guggenheim Museum is, by far, the most dear to me. Its architecture is fabulous, the building, inside and out, is a work of art itself. I love this place more every time I go there. The rotundas leading to the top of the building makes your experience unique and contribute to the art experience and appreciation. The skylight is... More

My son and I visited one afternoon and were a bit disappointed in the overall experience. The current exhibits were good, but not great or particularly ground breaking. The staff, and especially the security personnel, were a bit rude and even pushy, and the admittance price was steep. The one exhibit we were looking forward to seeing - Frank Lloyd... More

This museum has a limited number of pieces on display from its regular collection and much depends on what other pieces are there on special exhibit. We were in and out in less than 2 hours.

My wife and I enjoy visiting places that are historic in nature and the Guggenheim is definitely one! The food wasn't that great but the wine was good. Luckily for us, the exhibition at the time was "Cubanism Art" - which is one of wife's favorites. Towards the end of our tour, we became a little dizzy as we got... More

There is the "house" collection of art which is amazing...and there is a traveling exhibit. Check out what is there before you go, and make sure you will appreciate it. For the same price you can go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and see sooooo much more.
