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

This is a beautiful building with ever changing modern art as well as some permanent classics. The theme when we went was China. Some of it was a little over our heads but it was a great experience none the less. Would go back again...More

Others have said it all. I'm a Frank Lloyd Wright fan. We love art and museums. Been to NY many times and decided this time to finally see the Guggenheim. Just don't bother. The Met is always wonderful, MOMA always has amazing surprises, The Frick...More

Layout of museum is very user friendly. Easy to keep track of where you have been and where you are headed. Some of the artwork just made me scratch my head. A couple of hours is plenty if you aren't big into the current exhibits.

I have been to NYC several times and had never been to the Guggenheim but always wanted to go. Somehow we've always just not been able to fit it in. Too bad that wasn't the case on this trip!! I love art and art museums....More

We got out of the cold and into the Guggenheim today for the last day of a great exhibit. Lunch and pretty good coffee -- but the art warmed us both up much more than the food and drink.

Great Chinese exhibition on when we visited. Highly recommend that you purchase your tickets online before you arrive - that way you won't have to wait in line for ages. Also recommend not taking a bag with you as this will need to be checked...More

This building is wonderful to visit. The structure is great, and the spiral ramp that you wander up and down to visit exhibits is such pleasurable way of experience the art set out, and peering down at the central void is fantastic. Even when it...More

I had heard many good things about this museum and it was at the top of my museums to visit list. I thankfully bought tickets in advance online and skipped a very long line in the frigid winter air. The building itself is an impressive,...More

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