“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.

Very interesting and quirky building. The staff were very helpful on entering and we had a ticket within a few minutes. There is a cloakroom available, which is fantastic in the winter months though very busy. There was a good collection of art work, maybe...More

We visited the Hilma af Klint exhibition and it couldn't have a better fit between ambiance and art as she envisioned exposing her work in a circular place. The museum has a kind of a circular ramp in the main building that seemed "purposedly built"...More

While architecturally interesting, this museum has a quite small permanent collection. The Af Klint was good, but again small. Instead of spending $25 per ticket here, I would suggest the Met or the Frick.

This is a beautiful museum in an impressive building. It is built in a very inviting way, where you are exposed to the exhibition from different perspectives. Specifically, the current exhibition “Hilma of Klint” is unique, interesting and fantastic.

The Giggenheim is an interesting building -- anything by Wright is. That said, it's not really as inviting as all that. I went for a special exhibit which took up the entire spiral space, not my favorite format: it's not an intimate experience with art....More

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
