    Most people walk the main spiral, but the smaller staircases usually house exhibits by more emerging artists.

    A fantastic art museum with many famous works situated on a unique spiral walkway. When you walk into the main area, look up! It makes for a great photo.

    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!

  • Charles E.

    World famous for a reason! Gotta go up the spiral walkway. Don't try and skateboard down it though...

    The complexity and controversy surrounding the design of the museum lasted so long that both patron Solomon Guggenheim and architect Frank Lloyd Wright died before the building’s completion in 1959.

    The Hugo Boss Prize winner earns a solo show at this Frank Lloyd Wright–designed icon. When the building was proposed, artists from Guston to Kline wrote in protest of its unusual shape.

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

    To immediately avoid the masses at the bottom, take the elevator up to the top and walk down the exhibit instead of walking up!

    Ask the Gallery Guides (with the big "Ask Me!" buttons) about the art! Even if you don't have a specific question, ask something like, "What is going on here?" They are super smart & friendly! Do it.

    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.

    The building itself is a work to be pondered, but the exhibits are always stimulating and hold true to the museum’s form and intent.

    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.

    Home to modern masterpieces, the building itself is a a huge draw too. The iconic spiral building was the final work of 20th-century architect Frank Lloyd Wright, though he died before its completion.
