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

We visited because it was included in the NY City Pass and it's an iconic spot. Otherwise we wouldn't have gone as we are not art admirers or "connoisseurs". The building is remarkable both inside and out. The exhibitions made us feel rather stupid, for not understanding the view of the artist... Bottomline: if you're not into modern art, please... More

The main attraction for me was to see Maurizio Cattelan's 18K Gold functional toilet. No purses or backpacks allowed inside. Only you and your phone. Current exhibits include American abstract painter, Agnes Martin, and "Tales of Our Time", which are commissioned works from artists from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. General Admission Adults: $25, Students and Seniors: $18, and children... More

I did enjoy it, liked that the Wi-Fi was free and the headphone set made it easier to understand what you were seeing. The featured artist was interesting, but I had hoped for more in the regular collection. I was disappointed that there was not more about Frank Lloyd Wright, just a few photos and blueprints.The one "bistro" was ok.... More

This was our first visit to the Guggenheim and we really enjoyed it. It is a smaller museum that can easily be visited in about 2 hours. The complimentary headset guides were great and enhanced our visit. We look forward to visiting again!

I went there primarily because Frank Lloyd Wright built it and I wanted to see it. That part is really good! Different way of seeing museum pieces! Art in the museum is modern art which is something I do not comprehend. So, I cannot say I enjoyed that much - though there were some unusual pieces! Do not take coffee... More

The Agnes Martin exhibition was the worst I have ever seen. The only interesting was the permanent exhibition. A real petty, I was in Guggeheim Bilbau a couple of years ago and enjoyed every minute of it. The best with this one was to leave it. The worst 50 dollars ever spent in a museum.

I've always been a huge fan of the Guggenheim museum: its location, amazing architecture and boldness have always surprised me. Unfortunately, last time I went there (about 3 days ago) I did not have the same experience. The main exhibit was from Agnes Martin and it was basically a collection of canvas painted in white. If the idea of art... More

I had a very high expectation before I went! Unfortunately I was quite disappointed. It's not the museum is not good. You have to check what is exhibiting when you go. If you have no interest in that one, don't go. Don't waste your time and money.

There is a lot better museums to see. This one is waste of money. It tries to be modern, but fails quite well on it.

If you enjoy architecture, then this is worthy of a visit. There was a good collection of Impressionist an Modernist paintings in a side gallery(Picasso, Toulouse Lautrec, Gaugin and contemporaries), which were very varied and interesting, but the main paintings exhibited on the sprial ramps through the main building - well, sorry, what were they all about? See the new... More

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.
