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

In terms of the actual experience of a museum, this is by far one of the best. I took the elevator up to top floor and worked my way down. It could easily be done in the reverse. The way the museum is designed, navigating...More

We arrived a couple hours before closing time on a Monday and it was not very busy. Cool building and art. The only negative was you had to check any bags and could not take any drinks in. We had to wait in a separate...More

The museum was so very crowded, but it did not detract from the collection on view. Classic paintings and sculpture simply displayed, and nicely presented on audio. I come to the Guggenheim every time I visit NY.

Amazing architecture and aesthetics! There are some very nice pieces of art in the museum but we think that the ticket price was a bit too much!

To be honest, we are not great art lovers so it would be unfair to make comments regarding the art work here. We decided to visit as we were in Central Park and had bikes so decided to stop off and have a look. We...More

The building itself is note worthy and has stunning curb appeal. To see just how breathtaking the art and building are, the line is worth the wait. You also get free admission with the NYC Pass. They had a Kandinsky exhibit during my visit and...More

Coming upon the Guggenheim from the street is pretty breathtaking, as the building's iconic structure is impressive. There is an emphasis on more modern art in many of the displays inside, but there's a nice range of different eras as well. Strolling the interior of...More

You can do the lobby but you will miss out on the building. It was 25$. Which included the coat check. The amazing views are from that fabulous spiral staircase, from the top down.
