My 1st time visiting the Guggenheim and it was a pleasant experience. This museum isn't as over-whelming as The Met and the Philadelphia Museum of art with the endless maze of rooms. Even someone who loves art like me can feel like the bigger museums.. Read more »

New York has many great museums, but this one is special inside and out, starting on the outside with the stunning Frank Lloyd Wright building, which is just as impressive on the inside of the rotunda. In addition to being a masterpiece of architec.. Read more »


As an iconic building that is worth a visit in itself - I give this museum high marks. The architecture of the building is unique, and fun to examine both inside and out. The design of the gallery space winds around the perimeter in a spiral, with a.. Read more »

Saw the Artistic license exhibit. Amazing choices and themes. All the exhibits were chosen by artists that have had solo exhibitions in the past. Lots of pieces that have never been displayed before from the Guggenheim collections.


If you’re into architecture and modern art then this place is perfect for you. The outside and inside is amazing. It’s very whimsical. I brought it one star because it’s really not very young kid friendly. It needs to be organized more appropriat.. Read more »
