“modern art”(251 reviews)
The circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building is as much of a draw as the museum's collection of modern art.

Loved the interior and exterior design of the building, but the exhibits were less than appealing. One whole floor was closed for viewing yet full price was charged. All that could be seen were a few sculptures and photographs. Food was nondescript.

Beautiful museum. Worth visiting the building itself and the ever changing expositions. However, three quater is now closed and the entrance fee of 15 dollar is far too much. Wait until fully opening !

I’ve always wanted to see this museum but actually, with such a small permanent collection on display, with a ridiculously poor contemporary exhibition on view and with the spiral staircase closed, it’s actually not great at all. The best aspect is probably the architecture. Amazing...More

For me, not being into modern art, the building is the star. The spiral ramp was closed! The other stuff on show in the very small rooms (especially the Clap with one hand) section was typical modern trash . (Should have been called Crap with...More

Only 30 paintings are exhibited. The rest is elsewhere leased or rented. The visit is worth the ticket only for the elliptical staircase and architecture uniqueness. Hope MoMA has more to be seen.

I've been more than once in NYC and Guggenheim Museum is always the best. In particular because there are paints of Marc Chagall, my favorite artist. But You can find many others even more famous than him

Much of the museum was closed for installation of the next exhibition and whilst the works from the permanent collection on display were good and the admission price was reduced the visit was, overall, disappointing. As for the exhibition that was running (one hand etc.)...More

Even though part of the museum’s closed as they install a new exhibit, it was still definitely worth a visit. The admission price is even reduced because of it. The building is BEAUTIFUL. And the two floors of exhibits that were open housed a few...More

Look at the building from outside. Don't waste time on going inside, there is very little to see there. Go again to the Met museum instead or to any other museum in nyc, you will enjoy it much more.

the nation's most famous attractions in a single

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