    If u are an architecture buff, this is a must visit. I agree the architecture overwhelmes the art. I spent my first hour in awe with the interior space and hardly noticing the art!

    really your experience seems to depend on how well you think the unique phenomenological format of the museum fits the show. but my god, encountering Agnes Martin's final painting here was a rush.

    The Guggenheim Museum is one of NYC's greatest museums. The permanent collections are always exciting: get your fill of Kandinskys and Pollocks, admire a Picasso and a Mondrian. Food for the soul!

    Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural dream rivals the concept-driven modern art exhibits inside the museum. Audio guide is a good option & get a look at the boosktore ♥

    Very impressive museum! Must see even if just for the building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The promenade with the various galleries and exhibitions is unique and very well thought out!

    I enjoyed the first floor the most. Museum includes Alexander Archipenko, Paul Cezanne, Marc Chagall, Edgar Degas and of course Vasily Kandinsky. They even had a city built out of cos cos.

    Two times I came here and I can see awesome pieces of art. One was the personal collection of Peggy Guggenheim and the other was about the Group Zero (group of German artist about 50's-60's).

    Take the elevator to the top and work your way down. Walking down the spiral is much easier. Added bonus: you get to see all the art walking downstairs when leaving if it's closing time.

    Building is a wonderful space to view art. Stop on floor 3 or 4 and look across the rotunda - you can see all the art on every floor at once, while the people move up and down the ramps.

    visited during the Hilma af Klint exhibit, absolutely amazing and incredibly good collection of art. The spiral architecture definitely adds to the experience. Definitely a must-see when in NYC

    Amazing sets of Pollock and Picasso. Different from what you generally see elsewhere and from their mainstream artistic tendencies.

    Picasso Black and White is an on-going exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum to showcase Pablo Picasso's artworks in black and white throughout his prolific career from 1904-1971. Continues January 23.

    Absolutely incredible! Come during one of the "pay what you want" Saturday evenings and get in line early, so you don't have to rush through the exhibits.

    On Saturdays from 5:45-7:45pm it is "pay as you wish" admission. Be prepared for a long line but it's worth it! Great Calder pieces!

    The building itself is the main draw here, but don’t miss the exhibits, which are intellectually challenging and interesting. Closed on Thursdays!

    The architecture is awesome, and the exhibits are fascinating. Visited in March 1998, when Art Honor Society @ WHS had their field trip. It was the perfect day, especially for me when I was just 15!

    One of the most beautiful museums in the world. Get here early during peak season. When they’re switching exhibitions you can see it all happen as there’s no backstage at this museum.

    I particularly like the flow through the museum as well as the location. Not to ignore us the art but this will of course be up to the collection at that moment and to personal taste

    The main spiral provides a flow to viewing an exhibit that no other museum provides. An organic, but decidedly modern piece of thematic architecture. Don't miss the Aye Simon reading room.

    Definitely unique, in terms of both the art on display and the architecture of the museum itself. If you're a fan of modern art, plan to spend several hours checking out the collection.

    Don't just stay in the magnificent exterior design of this place but visit the great modern art expo of Kazinsky and Picasso amongst others. Great museum shop in the ground floor.

    Iconic museum housing Guggenheim's collection of modern art, building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. To experience it as he intended, take the elevator up to the top, then the ramp down.

    Buy your tickets online the day before, especially if you’re planning to visit when it’s particularly hot or cold outside, as the line for new tickets is 99% on the street.

    If you're not into art, at least come here for the building. Fascinating from the inside and outside. Buy the ticket online and walk all the way to the top.

    The Guggenheim Museum in New York City took Wright for 16 years to complete (1943–1959) and is probably his most recognized masterpiece. Its interior is similar to the inside of a seashell.

    I would visit this museum every trip to NY. The architecture itself is phenomenal. And the rotating exhibits are always thought provoking which is something I value in art.

    Beautiful architecture. Enough reason to go. The Tannhauser Collection is also good...nice pieces of Picasso and Gauguin. But the rest was not that interesting in my opinion.

    Iconic building and institution that never gets old and always feels like a breath of fresh air when you visit. Start at the top and work your way down.

    Frank Lloyd Wright designed this building with nature in mind. In addition to his use of organic shapes, the artist also helped advocate for its location across the street from Central Park.

    Hidden behind the wall at the first bay near the rotunda is a ceramic tile mural done by Joan Miró. The work was commissioned by museum trustee Harry F. Guggenheim in 1963 to honor his late wife. Read more

    I think one of the experiences is just to be in the building, because it is really cool. However, you have to be lucky to land on an interesting exhibition.

    Unlike a lot of other museums, grabbing a free audio tour (yes - free) is worthwhile to learn more about the art. Descriptions are brief in postings if any at all.

    Start at the bottom because the art is in chronological order. Discounted admission for veterans. Huge line Saturdays approaching 5pm, because you pay what you want for admission.

    Saturdays 5:45-7:45pm pay-what-you-wish admission. Will be crowded (so get there early) but it's also super cool to people-watch all the diverse art-lovers who pack the museum at this time.

    A great piece Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. The smaller staircases exhibit emerging artist and will also take away from the hustle that can exist at times through the main walk ways.

    A must see even if you don't know a thing about contemporary art. There is a small room towards lower level with a few french impressionists works. Free on Saturdays 5:45-7:45

    The building is stunning and strongly to be recommended. If you can, go when there’s an exhibition you’re interested in because the main collection is pretty small.
