“modern art”(250 reviews)
The circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building is as much of a draw as the museum's collection of modern art.

The famous spiral of this iconic building is currently closed for renovations, and only a small segment of the permanent collection is available on the second floor. As a result there is no point in visiting at the moment. The museum does indicate this fact...More

I had never been to the Guggenheim before despite many visits to NYC. The permanent collection on the 2nd floor is excellent, but there are only about 20 pieces worth studying. The temporary Chinese modern art exhibits during my visit on the 5th and 7th...More

The show was centered on one sculptor, which really wasn't interesting to me. The permanent collection has some Picassos and Impressionists, which is a nice change. There was an avant garde Asian exhibition, which was really thought-provoking. The building is wonderful.

We have not been to NYC for almost 20 years, and having a bit of time spare we decided to revisit this place. As an engineer, I love Wright's designs, form follows function, and the spiral design does it well. As the the current main...More

We were really looking forward to visiting, having previously been to Bilbao and Venice, but this gallery doesn't compare favourably with either of them. The building itself is iconic and impressive, but it cost us more than it did to go to the Met and...More
