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

This is a remarkable building to view, both inside and out. Not personally interested in the Art inside. Not my thing. However, the architecture is stunning. Been to NY 3 times before and it's always been surrounded in scaffolding so this was the first time I've really had a chance to admire the outside

What this Museum shows for the entrancy fee is to poor. There is only one a little bit interesting floor with paintings open, the others are closed ( May 2015 ) If you have purchased some of the NY Passes, save the ticket for other events.

A very unpleasant experience. My friend and I love to visit musea. And for the first time in NY guess what: first choise: it was the famous Guggenheim. What we saw: the hall near the entrance a mess. Piled up boxes. It was for a new show- as the call it. They had no other way to store it, they... More

What should have been interesting and uplifting was instead full of disappointment. The buildIng of course was superb but it would have been possible to see that without experiencing and paying for the paucity of what was on offer. With just one small collection worth seeing owing to preparation for new exhibitions the visit was over almost before it had... More

The building in itself is an art piece ! Pity that is is undergoing de-installation but that is no way to give a bad rating for this museum. A number of private collections are being exhibited and I am especially proud of their Learning Thru Arts program. Some amazing budding artists here!!

Extraordinary building, beautiful architecture of course. But Kamara exhibition is really really abstruse, occupying for that 80% of the linear exposure is ridiculous. As against the modern works are exceptional, including the Magnificent Picasso "The ironer".

While I did get in at a reduced price, there was only one gallery worth visiting. The other 2 available galleries contained: 1. Literally children's art. There is a place for this, but to pay to be subjected to it is a bit rude. 2. A display titled Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: Infinite Possibility. Mirror Works and Drawings 1974?2014. I personally... More

Yes they did tell us that the gallery only had a limited opening. What they don't tell you is one third of this is fourth grader art!! Beautiful building but a dreadful waste of entrance money. Surely you let people in for free and generate good will. I'll never return and I would suggest you go to the Metropolitan Museum... More

Building by Frank Lloyd Wright is very impressive and stands out as a unique architectural feature amongst the New York suburbs. Unfortunately we visited when there were major refurbishments being carried out so we could not see floors 3, 4 and 5, and could not use the spiral stairway at all! Very disappointed. There was only a few pieces of... More

An interesting structure, quite simple on the exterior and beautiful inside. Lovely stuff in the gift shop!
