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

Museum itself is definitely worth visit either for its architecture or for its excellent collection of modern art. Great exposition of Brancusi among others. Do not wait for free entrance since line could last for more than hour. Small museum shop with a lot of...More

I would not recommend this unless they have a special exhibition. The art work was ordinary. But I loved the building itself.

Absolutely the most consistent level of quality and content. Hands down a must see museum. The thrilling curves of the ramp, views from above and of course the artwork are all top notch.

All four Guggenheim's are unconventional museums, the Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece on New York's upper Fifth Avenue at 89 Street possibly the most so. It's dedicated to modern and contemporary art but check: a show might be off-beat for you such as motorcycles. The design...More

The building was yet again undergoing works. Of the three times I have visited, this was the 3rd time. The main area was closed this time and the other art installation we saw were not great. Distinctly average.

This was my third visit to the Guggenheim in the last 20 years and, by far, the least pleasurable. (My first visit was some 20 years ago. At that time a remarkable temporary exhibit, The Art of the Motorcycle was running -- and, by itself,...More
