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

This was my second attempt to view the art in this world class museum. The first time I went, I did not check the schedule and found out the hard way that they close on Thursdays. So, before this visit I made sure to check and was pleasantly surprised to see they have Pay-What-You-Wish admission on Saturdays from 5:45pm to... More

This trip I was lucky, American Natural History in the morning and the Guggenheim all afternoon. Amazing design and flawless presentation of art. There was something to please everyone in this glorious place. The writing of these reviews make me homesick for my home away from home, New York City.

Biggest tip for a successful visit is to get there at opening time, and preferably midweek. The architecture is impressive and the art collection is marvellous. The free audio guide is a great idea, but I found it distracting and I preferred looking at the pictures and reading the captions on the wall. I found the text by the museum's... More

Art museums aren't me, but this was simply incredible. The Kandinsky section was my favourite. Definitely do not miss this place!

I did not know that van Gogh was fluent in English! And, the paintings at this incredible museum are fantastic...the building is wonderful...today we heard 'the oldest song in the world', sung from music found in Syria...a joy! Also, the cafe #3 has a great view over Central Park and 5th Ave.

Either of them live to see their vision of where it is displayed today the largest collections of Wassily Kandinsky's paintings in the world. Paul Klee, Franz Marc, Robert Delaunay, Marc Chagall and Fernand Léger are among other modern masters featured in the... More

This was a great museum. The museum is laid out beautifully and you can view everything in about 2 hours. The best part was the cafe and the restaurant Wright Restaurant. Delicious and very reasonable the Cafe a latte only $5 and very good.

Great works of art (the building too) - wonderful to see the progression in modernism as one walks around the facility.

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.
