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

beautiful musuem

Not the best place for kids, but it depends on the exhibit. You can great some great photos of the architecture here too. Be sure to visit the cafe to see the view outside.

I'm a huge fan of Frank Lloyd Wright who designed this building. After going through the Museum though, i think the best art is the building itself. I'd suggest saving the money and then going down to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. You'll find a lot of similar art from the same artists such as Monet, Picasso and van Gogh.

Often overshadowed by the MoMa and the Met, the Guggenheim has a vast collection of artwork from impressionist, cubist and other artist up through the 1940's. Works by such classic artists such as Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Picasso and others, the collection is truly world class and is a must see for art enthusiast visiting New York. Don't forget to...

Although the collection of the museum is impressive, a big part of the space is dominated by the temporary exhibitions. Unfortunately, the two exhibitions I saw here were not really to my taste. Don't let it discourage you too much though, just check the website before your visit :)

Loved my visit to this venue, with its own architectural design charm. Can be tiring as you're following a spiral pathway upwards, and insufficient seating area. Queues for the toilets were large, but often worth moving on to the next level as less queues. Merchandise is overpriced and the price tag didn't include the taxes. I found most of the... More

How can you beat a great collection of art, well curated, and displayed in an architectural icon? I don't know. We took the elevator up, and the spiral down. Well spaced, well lit, easily accessed paintings, mobiles, sculptures, and mixed media treated us to a variety of modern, impressionist, and just plain funky output from renowned artists - some made...

This is a modern art museum but contains some of the best of the group. A beautiful building with an unusual design. A place to enjoy spending some time.

This is worth a whole day - the building itself is amazing, you can stand in the atrium and watch people disappearing up the spriraling interior. The collections are incredible and so many of them - Chagall, Picasso, Brancusi, and so many pieces to each, really superb . There's also a really fantastic cafe/restaurant which is worth eating at, a... More

Amazing collection of art! Could spend hours here... Very busy though due to poor weather outside, however the lines move quickly and crowds disperse at their own pace whilst viewing the works.

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.
