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

Don't make the mistake of thinking you can skip this museum and consider that you have done New York city justice. While it doesn't have the depth and breadth of the Metropolitan Museum, it has some aspects which make it unmissable. 1. The architecture of...More

This is a must visit. One of the worlds greatest buildings and museums. It’s fitting in my eyes that - reading the reviews - this museum divides opinions as much now as when it was first built. Frank Lloyd Wright is an architectural genius and...More

The architectural marvel is easy to admire and not too hard to navigate. Only a small part of the permanent collection is usually on display, with 90% of the museum space given to special exhibitions at any given time. Some of them may be too...More

Stunning building as you approach from Central Park... nothing looks quite like it. Queues are efficiently handled and even with the crowds, the central atrium looks impressive. A must see.

This is another masterpiece of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The building just amazes but is also very functional and works - at least from visitor’s point of view. The spiraling walkway which goes through all the floors is so nice to walk in and peaceful,...More
