Many of this museum's famous paintings are under wraps right now as the museum is undergoing serious renovations. There is a wonderful Kadinsky exhibit and an exhibit of an Indian (from India) painter. Otherwise, most everything else is in storage. I did find the work on display intriguing. I just think that the museum should have reduced its prices when... More

This museum was not in the league for the MOMA...we were very disappointed. Some of the galleries were closed and we found that the collections on offer were limited. Although they did offer a reduced entrance fee...it was not value for money. Skip this one and spend the extra time in the MOMA.

What a disappointment. The Guggenheim is under significant renovations until February 6 and there is little worth seeing. Hearing the saws and drills is a major distraction, but much worse is the second rate displays. I worry that once the renovations are complete, poor infrastructure will continue. A cafe that closes at 3:30 PM is indicative of the poor customer... More

If the museum is going to close most of its exhibition space for refurbishment or changeover, then it should warn potential visitors. Not impressed.

I was there where only two floors were open, you could not enter the ramp to enjoy the really nice architecture of the building. Few pieces of Kandinsky and Van Gogh, extremely expensive coffee and nothing more.

Both the building itself and the fine art in it are really worth seeing! This is one of the best museums in New York.

I loved this museum but I have to say my husband and children who are perhaps not as fired up as I am by art galleries were really not very enamoured! They thought the building itself was amazing, but were much more engaged at the Met which was a bit less esoteric. I enjoyed myself!!

Disappointing to say the least. As is always the case, it is luck of the draw on special exhibitions and this one was a real Zero (pun intended). If you want to see the real collection I would recommend the Guggenheim branch in Venice. Otherwise go to NY MOMA - don't waste your time here. Bathrooms are disgusting too.

The architecture of the museum is absolutely amazing. Walking slowly to the top floor while looking at the art collections makes me appreciate the building design even more. If you are not quite into modern arts, I am sure the museum design itself will amaze you, worth visiting. p.s. they offer free audio guide, the guide will give you a... More
