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

This museum is really worth the visit. The building itself is beautiful and makes the art look great. The collection is exciting. Calder, Brancusi, Kandinskij, Picasso... And I recommend using the golden toilet America. We spent two or three houres here on a Sunday. It for very crowded around twelve-one, I recommend going early.

I am not a huge fan of modern art, but having lived in the area my entire life it was kind of a shame that I never before went to the Guggenheim. The architecture alone is worth the visit, and the art is spaced out enough that even with crowds you can enjoy the art and read the explanations. Nice... More

I'm definitely not a modern art enthusiast, but I enjoyed my visit. Visited on 2.18.17 with my husband and spent 2 hours viewing the various paintings and exhibits. The architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright alone is worth a visit; such a unique structure. Staff were friendly, and we arrived when it opened. I enjoyed viewing Picasso, Cezane, Manet and others....

The spiral layout is way cool. Digestible amount of art, though, under 2 hours for the whole deal. Facility is very dated. We're from CT and the Yale art museum is better and free. This is more a 10 or 15 dollar attraction, or part of city pass visit.

The Guggenheim Museum is a mus see if you are visiting New York City. However, the featured exhibition was Agen Martin whose art work looks like gift wrapping paper. Ms Martin apparently agreed with my assessment of her work as she herself burned several decade of it, unfortunately not all. The other exhibits did not disappoint making for a pleasant... More

We were fortunate to see the latest exhibit called Visionaries which draws on Hilla Rebay's influence on Guggenheim. Relay also drew on Katherine Drier's estate.

Went to the museum, have not been here for years and took a guided tour. It was free and so worth it! Museum has just enough on exhibit not to be exhausted by the end. The tour guide was outstanding and completely passionate about sharing her insight to the selection of work. Tour takes about 1 hour. Must do if... More

I'm not an art fan like my wife, but even I enjoyed the visit! That should give you some comfort if you're like me. The building is more impressive from the inside than the outside, with some unusual art instillations. One of the art attractions is a working gold toilet. You can go to the standard restroom and wait just... More

This architectural masterpiece is worth a visit all by itself but the exhibits are also augmented by the way one wanders through the building.

Hats off to Solomon Guggenheim for collecting art that was progressive during his time. No stuffy realism. Start on the 6th and stroll down the curving walkway as you enjoy just enough art to fill a few hours.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
