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

Very modern art!

Most of the art on display here is very modern. They do have some old masters. MOMA is also modern but the display there is much better. The food at MOMA was also better. You... read more

This art museum designed by Frank Lloyd Wright may lean towards more modernist type exhibitions but the building itself is a work of art. I certainly recommend booking tickets online.

I found the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum overall too expensive for what it was compared to other museums in New-York. Even if you listen to the full audio-guide (building, permanent and temporary exhibitions), which I did, and read other details along the way you can see everything in less than 3 hours. The audio-guide switched off before the end of... More

We were so looking forward to a 2pm tour entitled Kandinsky: Life and Works, but were sadly let down, given a general hard to hear chat about the curved lines of the building and how nice it is to have natural light pouring in. So after 20 minutes of that, and requesting that we get on to learning about Kandinsky... More

The building is unique and worth the trip. The permanent collection on the first floor on French painters from the Impressionist period is breathtaking and also worth the trip. The contemporary art temporary exhibitions are more intellectual and difficult to grasp. Some are honestly ugly, some make terrible noises, i was not impressed.

I was expecting a lot more as I really enjoyed the Venice museum.Like I say the building is amazing though and a few pieces worked for me.

By far my favourite museum that I have been to. The design, by Frank Lloyd Wright, is perfect for a museum. You cannot miss any of the exhibits whilst you get a nice workout! Great modern art exhibits and the location is awesome. A must see in NYC.

Right across from Central Park, the building is itself a piece of artwork. We arrived to a short line right before 10am opening on a Saturday and were processed quickly by the admissions staff. We needed just about 1.5 hours to stroll through the galleries - set up like no other museum we have been to. We enjoyed strolling casually... More

Other reviewers have commented on the building and it certainly warrants praise. At this writing, the Doris Salcedo exhibit is present. Her work is rooted in the troubled past and current recovery of Colombia. Several pieces are quite moving, particularly the shoes in compartments behind vellum. There is a bit of avant garde art in much the rest of the... More

Everyone needs to experience the interior of this architectural masterpiece. It's a unique space & the aesthetic setting adds to the display of whatever exhibition is on display. Look up at the ceiling, it's just beautiful. Very nice gift shop.
