“modern art”(278 reviews)
The circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building is as much of a draw as the museum's collection of modern art.

I went to the museum with two goals: As a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture, I wanted to explore the building. And as a fan of Constantin Brancusi, I wanted to see the exhibition of his sculptures. The building was really fascinating! The angle...More

I didn't think this museum was worth the entry price. There is so much great art to see in NYC, and I am not saying the art in the Guggenheim isn't great, but there is not much to see. Give it a skip if you...More

I'll admit this is not the best art museum I've been to for my tastes. Some of it was just out-of-this-world weird. However, it's the Guggenheim. Both outside and inside the structure itself is an excellent example of superb architecture. Frank Lloyd Wright did himself...More

We all know the Guggenheim is a ‘must see’ if you’re in New York but honestly, I’d save your money ($50 for my husband and I to go in) and just admire it from the outside. It’s a nice building and the architecture is lovely...More

The building is amazing in itself. The gallery forms a spiral. You can walk around and up or take the elevator up and walk down. There was a rather long line at the elevator so we walked both ways. The displays are of modern art....More

Absolutely love the museum. Superb exhibitions. Book tickets in advance. Much less queues. BY FAR!! My gripe is kids 12 and over pay full price. Seems harsh. For a museum, surely getting kids in, expose them to the joy of museums, and the exhibits, can...More

The architecture is a gem, though the building needs maintenance. Permanent exhibitions are decent but small. The rest is just cool because....the building is cool. The price of the ticket is a ripp-off. You wanna learn how to hang art at home? Go there. Otherwise...More

Art within art, a must visit for any museum or avid art fan. Absolutely stunning Wright architecture and one of the most enjoyable art museum experiences. Start at the top and work your way down. The earlier you arrive, the better.

We visited on a Saturday in August 2019, there was a very short line to purchase tickets, and museum was not super crowded, and we were able to see all exhibits without any problem.

Actually, no - it's not too bad at all. Not like going to cinema where you often need a fleece to stop freezing.
