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

One of New Yorks Major Art Galleries and as such you expect to see quality. Unfortunately all the pictures that were hung on the spiral rotund part of the building which We believe is anything up to half the collection had been removed temporarily - not sure how long. Luck of the draw I suppose. So in summary we missed... More

Was really looking forward to visiting the Guggenheim and am afraid was bit disappointed.Much of the museum,approx half was closed whilst an exhibition was being prepared.What we did see was fabulous but pretty limited in scale.Building is really interesting though.Worth visiting but don't expect to stay for hours unless you really linger over every exhibit.

The part of the building was closed which meant reduced entry ticket ($15 instead of $25) and just the right amount of some most amazing modern art. They also had a contemporary art piece by Cattelan and that's a very personal experience ;)

Some floors were closed off, so we didn't experience the entire museum. But what we did see was not motivational nor striking in any way. There was a small Frank Lloyd Wright exhibit in the basement. I suppose a student of architecture would be impressed.

Slightly chaotic queuing system, even arriving pre opening at 10am. If you are in the general admissions queue as we were, doesn't matter how long you've been there you wait for those with prepaid tickets/city passes to go in first, which meant that as loads of those people arrived in the first 15 mins after opening seemed ages before we...

I cannot be more condemning. This is all things a museum should not be! If the purpose of such am institution is to preserve and display art in all its forms, the people who run that joint have lost the plot, Ok, so I get that they have to change displays and make modifications, I also get that it's an...

We visited the Laszlo Moholy-Nagy exhibition in here! The exhibition was very good! The building is stunning and revolutionary! It stands for the times! A must see activity! :-)

The beautiful rotunda is closed for renovation, so that you miss the opportunity to see art on the "round ramps." We have been here before, and it was a breathtaking experience. There are presently only 5 floors open, and while this seems like it would result in half of the museum being available. In fact, it is much less. Floor... More

There were also exhibitions by Middle East artists. Also rich collections from very well known artists. Some of the parts of the building was under construction when I visited there. But although closed parts, collections, art works were so impressive. Glad to be there.
