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

We went to this awesome museum via a city tour bus. I love the architectural design of this enormous exhibit. Definitely a memorable experience and well worth the visit if your in New York City. Absolutely Awesome!

Half of the museum is closed until mid Feb 2017 but they advised us of that before entering and they had also cut the admission price in half. Since I really wanted to see this museum and still went. The impressionist painting collection there is impressive on it's own and is worth a visit. The America exhibit had a 1... More

The temporary exhibition wasn't really my type but the 'classic' level where you can see the famous impressionists, was truly wonderful. The gold WC was also epic. If you prefer 19-20th century's painting visit MoMA.

There are few world class galleries that can compete. This is one of the premier gallery collections in all the north hemisphere. The collection is vast and the atchitecture itself has a history which the visitor will find fascinating. MUST SEE if you are keen onn Art in NYC.

I was a bit underwhelmed with the pieces here. The building itself is beautiful, but given the price of the tickets, I only recommend coming if you are a fan of one of the artists in particular.

Loved the visit. There was a large section closed due to new exhibition going up. But entrance fee was reduced to reflect this. I enjoyed the layout and was impressed with the works and curation. Massive shame the cafe closed so early 3.30pm

Architecturally, the Guggenheim is in a class of its own, a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece. It's permanent collection is impressive but it's special exhibitions often leave much to be desired. The art can be challenging and the museum does not offer effective tours for the public. Be sure to ask if the exhibition starts at the bottom or the top... More

The rotunda was closed for install when we visited, which was fine. If you want to see the rotunda, make sure to check the exhibition schedule in advance. Admission was discounted as a result. Enjoyed the Thannhauser collection most- Monet, Degas, Cezanne, Picasso. Don't miss the gold toilet!

Museum is changing exhibits until early February so I would not waste time going until after then. The Chinese type exhibit was very strange and by itself is not with the admission price. Luckily we had free passes. There were only about 30 or so paintings still on display. There is no artwork on any of the spiral ramps. Store... More

In fairness, I was told no less than five times that the spiral galleries were closed before booking my ticket. Since those are more or less the reason people come here, it was no surprise that we could only see some of the museum's holdings. Admission was discounted to $15 because of that. There were about 50 paintings in one... More

Staying in 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.
