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

The building itself is a work of art. If you don’t love modern art, I suggest entering and looking up and then leaving. I was with family members who don’t enjoy modern art, so they move through the collection pretty quickly.

Guggenheim is a spectacular building. Unfortunately, the day we showed up there was an exhibit under construction, resulting in several galleries being closed. The museum did offer us rain checks but we were unable to return given our schedule.

This buildings architecture alone is worth going inside. You don’t have to pay to see the beautiful spiral staircase just walk in. The exhibits inside are mostly modern art with some of the permanent exhibits impressionist and cubist. Loved the building as a huge fan...More

Please understand, I am vastly prejudiced against "modern art". A visit to the Guggenheim DID NOT change my perspective.
