    Frank Lloyd Wright originally intended for Guggenheim visitors to take the elevator up and stroll down the ramps. Today, exhibitions are viewed both ways. The choice is yours!

    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.
