“modern art”(263 reviews)
The circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building is as much of a draw as the museum's collection of modern art.

Not a large gallery for the cost of entry, and whilst art is in the eye of the beholder, it was disappointing to only see one picture I liked. Lots of weird modern stuff, and some of it, highly unsuitable for a family with 15yo...More

The Guggenheim's spiral design was perfect for this show, which was how the artist had intended her works to be displayed. If you have a chance to see it before it closes on April 23rd, you will not be disappointed. The museum itself is a...More

Always good to see Robert Mapplethorpe ‘s great photography. It’s been so many years since his death it’s about time there was a major show for him. Klint was ok but nothing special. The Frank Lloyd Wright building is of course always a treat. Permanent...More

The one thing that stood out for me about the Guggenheim is that it was designed with the intention to provide a maximum experience of visiting a gallery. The spiral walkway offering a seamless experience of enjoying a painting exhibition.

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most
livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth
Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of
the nation's most famous attractions in a single
stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the
Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the

Actually, no - it's not too bad at all. Not like going to cinema where you often need a fleece to stop freezing.

You're overbooked. Spread it out. 3 museums in one day is ridiculous, esp when 2 are so very large.

Yep, that's fine. A pretty good walk, but a nice one alongside the park on your way from MoMA to the Guggenheim. (I hope you're going to the Met as well--it's far and away the best art museum in the city, and while it is a comprehensive collection, its modern holdings are vastly superior to the Guggenheim's.)

You should do your clustering before anything else; right now, your itinerary makes no sense at all. For example, the Circle Line pier is about 4 miles from the place the boats leave for the Statue of Liberty. The Empire State Building is more than 8 miles from the Cloisters. Worst of all is your plan for Day 6: the New York Aquarium, the New York Botanical Garden, the New York Hall of Science, and the Guggenheim Museum are not only not close to each other, but each one is in a different...More
