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

Our average review is unfortunate in that it seems this is the time of the year where exhibitions are often changed over and therefore we could only stand at the bottom of the... read more

Our average review is unfortunate in that it seems this is the time of the year where exhibitions are often changed over and therefore we could only stand at the bottom of the spiral gallery but not walk through it. The galleries to the side were open and the art work was very interesting. Perhaps avoid late September as a... More

The interior/architecture of this museum is amazing and makes it completely worth visiting - at least step inside to see it. Depending on the exhibit though it will be hit or miss. Most of the building is exhibition space, and their permanent stuff is not all that great. So I would be sure to check that you're interested in what... More

As unique, stunning and revolutionary as the day it opened. Wonderful exhibits. Free guided tour headphones. Special senior rate. Comfortable places for a bite to eat or a cup of coffee.

Beautiful building and quite interesting collection. If you have to choose, go to MoMa or The Met instead.

If you have limited time, I would recommend skipping the Guggenheim and going to one of the other museums. It was fine, and the building itself is really interesting, but other museums have so much more to see. I did like that there was an Impressionist exhibit when I was there--my favorite! The art here is very modern, so if... More

The Burri exhibit was laughably horrific -- four floors of melted plastic bags and sack cloth. Their main collection was sequestered in storage. And the "masterworks" in one small gallery were all the right artists, but all second rate pieces. Absolutely a waste of $50 for two.

I recommend you get the audio tour. It is really interesting and gives you a lot of details about the building and artwork.

The building is the main attraction here as, for me, the main 'art' exhibit during our visit was by someone called Burri which left me thinking a five-year old could have done better. Subjective - I suppose. The building is worth a look but not really worth the entrance fee. Better to visit the Met just along the road!

I would suggest more time on the moma or even the met than going to this museum, on the first place I had prepaid tickets that worked perfectly on moma and the met, but on this museum I had to wait in line for around 15 minutes with one lady doing nothing (could have helped but told us to wait...
