Loved the museum and Christopher Wool's work. Great architecture and works of art. Museum tour with Filip made the visit more memorable!
Wow! Look at just total number of reviews posted ... reflect on this: majority taking time to write would not waste an NY Pass on this museum. Glanced at some poor & terrible reviews in prepping for my essay about Guggenheim. They said all much better than i. "lovely building, woeful art." … "current exhibit (Wool) … pretentious crap." "…... More
Worth a visit to see the building. Permanent collection has a dozen or so worthwhile paintings (5 Picassos, some nice impressionists). Current exhibition in the main gallery ( Christopher Wool) is just pretentious crap.
The structure with its spiral ramp is beautiful and unique but the artwork was woeful. I knew what to expect from reading reviews and had decided not to visit but the exterior and then the glimpse of the interior pulled me in.

A lady conducting a survey among visitors said this was a common complaint. The employees were not especially friendly, being ready to pounce... More
The museum itself is absolutely breathtaking! Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture is an incredible piece of art on its own. The museum boasts an impressive collection - Picasso, Degas, Kandinsky, Picasso, Manet, Monet, Cezanne and on and on and on... I went during the Christopher Wool exhibit and was very impressed with his work. Just an FYI - the museum winds... More
We were so looking forward to this Museum, but sadly to say it did not live up to our expectations. There was a really good busker outside entertaining the crowd waiting in long lines. After a 45 minute wait , entering, I was asked if my small Lowepro backpack had a camera in it. Well yes.. and was then directed... More
