I gave them my driver's licence and they lost it!
They keep your ID when you borrow the audio guide, sort of to protect their property with your property...
Staff said that they are sorry and that was it. After not hearing from them, I called on my last day in NYC and they said they were looking into paying the cost to replace my licence but didn't actually do anything. I am shocked at the lack of response and seriousness from this people. I had to file a police report because they wouldn't even do that.
About the museum: pretentious, small collection, definitely overpriced, the building is beautiful and you can see it for free! If you have limited time, go to the MoMA and/or the metropolitan. Don't waste your precious time and your money at this poorly managed Guggenheim.

Great venue to see innovative art in an historic Frank Lloyd Wright designed building. The layout is very organized and the permanent collection a great treasure trove of Impressionism.

Go to the Guggenhiem and see the Hilma af Klint show - it is well worth the price of admission. The size and colour of the pieces are lovely, and when you read about the artist you gain further insight into her process.

The Guggenheim is surely one of the most interesting pieces of NYC architecture. But, the museum itself is very expensive and small. There are surely classic artists there, like Picasso, Monet, and Degas, but I don’t find it to be a museum that I can visit frequently. Other museums in the city have much larger exhibits and are more affordable, especially with pay what you wish options.

I took the advice of a friend to plunge into the touristic feeling and try the pay-as-you-want choice on Friday evening. Even though it was windy on 7 degrees Celcius, I could not feel the cold for the 20’ the queue lasted as there was an excitment vibe in the air.
The museum is great in terms of architecture and services.
I was greatful to see a Brancusi expo (a Romanian sculptor that lived in Paris).
Great atmosphere, a spot in your NYC bucketlist that has to be checked.

Frankly I'm shocked that the Guggenheim doesn't have 5 star reviews across the board. From the one of a kind Frank Lloyd Wright design, to the world class permanent collection and unique exhibitions, this museum is stunning. It's also smaller and more manageable than MoMA and the Met which makes it less overwhelming. Even when the museum is jam packed, like last Friday, the circular design still allows you to get intimate with the work because everyone is constantly moving. The gift shop is worth checking out as well. I would recommend this museum to all, especially skeptical non-museum lovers, if you have to go to one this one is it.

After a few days in NYC, we decided to see the Guggenheim Museum - but only to see the actual building and its unique circular architecture. Fascinating architecture - but that was as far as we went. (We were seriously over museums by then).

The building itself is amazing both inside and outside and I took many many pictures. The Wilma of Klindt exhibition is superb and it is certainly fascinating as it is shown in this building at its best. I also hugely enjoyed the information about how her work had progressed over time.

My experience of this phenomical building as an architect is overwhelming. Ecer since read about the creation of it by Frrank. L Wright i always dreamt of visiting it and verifying its architectonics. Situated amongst huge buildings, the geometry is still enduring to this day. After entering inside, one is encountered with undulating spaces filled with spirals unified as a singular object. Such spaces aid to your movement through different levels above hence, one is intrigued to keep moving through spaces. The whole gallery is well maintained. Moreover, i was lucky enough to visit an exhibition of Felix Gonzalez Torres that enhanced the tactility of the spaces.
For a family visit i find the prices of tickets quite expensive for approx 70$.

Spent a very interesting couple of hours in the Guggenheim. As a complete heathen when it comes to modern art I did actually enjoy seeing works by am Klint. Quite surprised myself. The rest of the pieces on display did nothing for me - however the building itself was rather wonderful. Worth a visit, if only to admire the architecture!
