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

Major disappointment.

There are so many wonderful art collections in NYC, this just isn't a favorite. Yes, the Frank Lloyd Wright building design is beyond words. I just haven't found an exhibit that... read more

Its worth a visit just to experience the building by Frank Lloyd-Wright. The exhibition on show was not really inspiring to my untrained eye, however I found the permanent Guggenheim collection to be just exquisite. Very accessible, 2 hours is sufficient, and its opposite Central Park, which is great to visit afterwards. No queues either.

This was my first time at the Guggenheim and it was spectacular. I visited with a 12 and 14 year old in tow. I would advise visiting on a 'pay what you wish' Saturday when you can visit from 5:45pm until 7:45pm for any donation. It's quite a short window and I would have liked to have stayed longer, but...

I really enjoyed my first time at the Guggenheim. I've always wanted to visit this museum. The venue is really impressive with its spiraling gallery, a joy to look at from both inside or outside. I found the art here very interesting. Come over with an open mind. You'll find masterpieces from Picasso to Gauguin. It'll definitely be worth the... More

There are so many wonderful art collections in NYC, this just isn't a favorite. Yes, the Frank Lloyd Wright building design is beyond words. I just haven't found an exhibit that says, stay, explore, contemplate. I actually left after 45 minutes. Maybe next time...

Good for a rainy day but not for kids. Extensive modern art exhibits. The building itself is a joy. Restaurant is okay.

I'm not a big art guy. This was the last place we visited before leaving New York. I'm glad we went there and had a nice stroll through it. Some people I'm sure would spend hours and hours there. We didn't and we were fine with that.

Travelled with 3 18 year olds and an 11 year old on an end of summer adventure. The Guggenheim was a must do. An extraordinary collection of art. Loved all of the photos and the interesting circular walkway leading to the top of the building. The building itself was a work of art. Not so interesting to my 11 year... More

I started at the top of the Rotunda and made my way down. The exhibition at the moment is a little too esoteric for my taste, but very well exhibited. The smaller, permanent exhibition has some wonderful paintings I have not seen before, so well worth the visit.

The building alone is a work of art and worth the visit just to see this! The museum always has a new exhibit to offer so every time I go here it always feels new and fresh. Our out of town visitors are always please with a trip to the Guggenheim! And we enjoy it time and again.

First, I am not an art history expert, or aficionado. I almost feel I have an obligation to go to art museums rather than going because I enjoy it. The Guggenheim has to be my favorite of my art museum experiences. The building itself is magnificent. It was also nice to see some of the masters paintings (I'm not totally... More
