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

You may not have budget to enter at the museum, but you should, at least pass around and see the building from outside. I truly believe the building is the real thing to see. The permanent collection also.

A must see in New York. The guided tour of the museum was so insightful, giving you insight as to what influenced the design of the building. i was in awe of the main tundra just looking up at it. Unfortunately the main tundra was closed off day I went due to preparation for the next exhibition. Tickets were discounted... More

The feature of the Guggenheim is the building it is art it'self. They curate the work to fit the building, hanging on round wall is a challenge. The artwork was fabulous and you expect that at the Guggenheim. But I felt a bit dizzy being on a slant all the time.

The Guggenheim is an iconic museum, the architecture itself is incredibly well known. Located on the edge of Central Park on the Upper East Side, it's a fantastic scene just to stand outside. The Thannhauser Collection includes some fabulous works by Picasso, Cezanne, Kandinsky etc and they are truly spectacular to see. As with modern museums, there are a number... More

We visited on a late Monday morning on a snowy day so the crowds were light and we could see everything with ease. Took the #4 train from midtown to 86th St and had a 10 min walk from the subway stop. Easy to find. Really enjoyed the openness and mobility around the museum. Slightly disappointed in the Frank Lloyd... More

We found this museum to be very unique, but make sure that you know who the main artist who is being displayed, otherwise you will be waiting in a very long line up for an uninteresting exhibit...

This place was really going to be the highlight of my trip with my husband to New York. I love Frank Lloyd Wright. Call ahead before you go to see if they are changing out exhibits because they close the ramp around the building and you cannot take pictures and it is very disappointing. I definitely recommend going just make... More

Visited in Feb 2015 when it was really cold and snowling. Easy to get to and easy to cover in a couple of hours. Enjoyed walking the circular walkway and taking in the Museum as well and the display. ALthough busy, the attendants made sure that people weren't crowing the displays so it was enjoyable. There is a lovely cafe... More

Ok the building is worth seeing and the experience of viewing the exhibits as you walk the circular ramps was special. But the price of admission was steep considering the amount of exhibits. And I will admit my experience was impacted negatively by the major exhibit (Burri) that was being presented. Just didn't connect with his work.
