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

I have wanted to visit the Guggenheim for years and got my opportunity during a visit to see my son in New York. It was late April and many of the side galleries were closed for new exhibitions to be set up. A reasonable $25 each for entry and we were able to see the Fischli and Weiss exhibition How... More

The building itself is magnificent, as well as what you will find inside. Wealthy and nicely presented collection, good exhibitions.

It's a spiral-shaped museum inside-- start with the special exhibit- in our case it was the 2nd floor - look for the inner room exhibits. Shoot up to the top and work your way down. There was a shop and cafe but we came with only 1.5 to see it. We really loved the Frank Lloyd Wright room and Kandinsky.... More

The building is Frank Lloyd Wright late in his career and at his best -- only he could do this, and only he could make it work! It is a really great building to experience, and surprisingly friendly, almost cuddly, despite its extraordinary design. The art on display is wonderful too of course.

Visited The Guggenheim museum with family. It was a very interesting exhibition and the architecture in and outside is great. Well worth a visit.

... so this was most likely a mistake. I didn't even really go there for art, but rather for the architecture of the building. In that concern I was not disappointed. The architecture is marvelous. But apart from that I didn't like it at all; but again, that is because I don't like Modern Art in general (I keep trying... More

Didn't see any penguins sliding down but got the idea. Great building inside and out. Art was great with a good mix of exhibits but you keep getting drawn back to the building. Panorama shots inside come out amazing. Got my daughter in one pano shot three times.

Enjoy the building for it's achitecture. It's a particular way to experience the modern and contemporary art collection. Prejudice on the collection might make you decide not to go and see it. My advice is : go and see it. It is wonderfull !

We visited six museums on our recent jaunt through New York, and while we loved the beauty of the Guggenheim's architecture and curated displays, the treatment of visitors by staff was a huge turnoff and quickly made it one of our least favourite experiences. We saw many guests admonished by guards to carry their purses differently, hold their cameras differently,... More

This Frank Lloyd Wright creation is one of my favorite spots in the city. If you're passing by, take a moment to stop in the lobby and look up. The view of the circular ramp forms a spiral tunnel that has to be seen to be appreciated. If you're a fan of modern art or impressionism, take an hour (or... More
