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

Even if not interested in art worth visiting just to see outside of building. Inside is made up of 7 continuous rotunda levels with artwork displayed on walls continually as you gradually wind your way to the top level. No charge to enter building and...More

You've gotta go! From the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright to the art exhibits and the spiral walk...very modern, very intriguing, very stimulating. Took our son and he loved it. We hadn't been in 10 years and found lots of new artworks to ponder. The...More

The building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright perfectly functions to support the art and the museum goer's experience. Rather than get lost in room after room of art as in most museums, the design elegantly supports your journey up the spiral walls of art and...More

Even if you have no interest in architecture, this building will be instantly recognisable. If you are visiting Central Park, there is no excuse not to drop by, even if it is just to take a quick photo.

An amazing collection of art in an amazing building. We spent a good couple of hours there enjoying all the paintings and sculptures. In fact we didn't realise it was close to closing time when we left. It fits in well with the Met, and...More

We have visited NYC many times, but for some reason have never made it up to the Guggenheim until recently. The architecture alone is worth a visit. This building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The art is a mixture of modern and classic. Not...More

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

I'm not really a modern art fan, but would love to see the building. I just wanted to check how much it costs so I can see if it would be worth me going to visit or not. Or if there is any way I can go inside (lobby/reception) etc without actually going into the exhibits.

You can do the lobby but you will miss out on the building. It was 25$. Which included the coat check. The amazing views are from that fabulous spiral staircase, from the top down.
I want to visit the museum next week, end of October, I am architect and like to see everything, about the interior architecture. Will be possible to visit all pavilions? Thanks

I don't believe you need to buy in advance. We were there in August, on a Saturday and just paid when we arrived.
