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

The museum was between exhibitions and was under some repairs. We received a reduced rate, so decided to go. It was still worth the admission. The museum is something to see in and of itself. The spiral walks were not accessible, so we will be...More

Finally made it to this amazing space for art and architecture. The building alone is reason enough to budget some time for this museum. The art is amazing definitely modern but there is something for everyone to enjoy!!

NYC has so many museums to visit. Take time to visit the Guggenheim on Fifth Avenue. Enjoy the exhibits, get a snak at the cafe or enjoy a meal and a drink at the restaurant

Charged a reduced submission because part of it was closed off - 15$ per person. Turns out this was an extortionate fee considering the amount you actually get to see. Nearly all the decent art work was closed off, we got to see the famous...More

I was blown away by the Guggenheim. The building itself was a labour of love, and fascinating architecture, but the collection of Modern & Contemporary art the Guggenheims achieved over the decades is second to none. The artwork is displayed in an easily accessible way...More

Highly recommend. Beautiful art beautifully displayed. Browse the circular displays in a most unusual snail shell shaped building, and if time, branch off into the collections, with well documented bios of the collectors.

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.

I don't believe you need to buy in advance. We were there in August, on a Saturday and just paid when we arrived.
