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

The building is fabulous. The collection is spectacular. The greatest collection of Kandinskis anywhere. Recommended.

The architecture and the artwork are a powerful combination. Not to be missed. Elevator to the top and walk down to see the collection. We had a gourmet lunch in The Wright, the museums cafe. This is 5th avenue, so it's pricey (for lunch) but delish. The written descriptions of the art and times are excellent. Be sure and read... More

MOMA and the Guggenheim Museum are certainly not for everyone especially when you see what the admission is. The building is as much the attraction as the art. Love the Kandinsky's right off the main lobby, a number of Van Gogh and Picasso's. The app is a great idea especially the feature that allows you to see on the app... More

This museum of art is the best museum or art gallery we have ever been. The design of the building by Frank Lloyd Wright is the main reason why the experience was so good. It is a stunning building from the outside and a brilliant interior design. A gradual slope spirals from the ground floor to the top with art... More

After a 30 block hike along Central Park to get to the museum it was a real pleasure to see the work of art that is the Guggenheim. The building itself is a sight to behold. Walking in your eye is immediately drawn to the central skylight with an open atrium around which the pathway winds all the way to... More

On a trip to NY visited on Thursday to find it closed - all our own fault ! Went a couple of days later - caught the lift to the top of the gallery as it opened and gently strolled down the famous walkway of this wonderful Lloyd Wright building. All the exhibits are spaced such that they are viewable... More

Amazing museum, and basically there is nothing else left to say neither nothing else should be added. Not only it showcases the works of Picasso, Kandinsky, Leger, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Claude Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Pierre Bonnard, Edouard Vuillard, Marc Chagall, Robert and Sonya Delaunay, Picasso, and Georges Braque, among others, but the quality of the works, at...

The best collection of art work in one glorious space that I have been lucky enough to see. If you do one thing in NY while you are visiting then do this. What a visionary, what an eye, how fortunate we are that it is shared with us all.

I went Saturday late afternoon without knowing that they have 'pay as you wish admission' at that time. I waited for close to 2 hours to get in, but it was worth waiting outside in cold and very windy weather. Once I was in the museum, I felt like I was in another world. I loved every second of my...

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
