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

Top ways to experience Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most 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 neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.

    Iconic building and museum
    Iconic building in New York. It is a popular site, make sure to book in advance, if not you risk waiting in line. Nice café with okay prices, and a great giftshop. I thought it was bigger, I was there 1 hour and feel I saw it all.

    Amazing Museum!
    The museum is so cool! The outside of the museum itself is a piece of art. Although I didn’t really like the artist who was currently on display (GEGO), I liked the museum in general. My favorite was the modern French art section, which had paintings by Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet, Degas, etc. There is also a cafe in the museum where I got a fresh fruit cup to refresh. On the top floors, there are Timelapses by Sarah Sze that are very cool and modern. And from anywhere in the museum, you can see the gorgeous ceiling and the ground floor. I highly recommend!

    Great family visit - not too short, not too long
    Great building - architecture invites you into the building as you progress up the various levels. For a family it was just about the right length as the 4 of us took between 60 - 90 minutes each to experience everything. Especially enjoyed the thematic nature, interactive photography (they actually ask you to use them for a couple of the exhibits) and the special Korean exhibition.

    Going Dark. Korean art exhibit from the 1960-1970s too.
    It's good we got here when we did, as they are only open until 6PM today. Went Dark here at the Gugg for the day. I do enjoy the flow of this museum up the spiral gradual ramp. We did want to get a refreshment at the end of the visit, but they blocked it from guests well after 4PM and far enough from closing. It's good there are kiosks selling water and beverages right up front. I bought a Going Dark cap, several postcards for family and some blank card notes with the New Yorker magazine themed for my brother. Around $60 for entry and another $58 for postcards and a cap. A unique museum featuring mostly modern art. Houses some famous pieces as well or perhaps on loan.

    Great museum, great disvovery
    This museum is a gem! I hadn’t planned to go there, because it’s not a very famous activity when you look for things to do in New York. Turned out it’s a beautiful, modern, well structured, estoneshing and surprising museum which is worth it! I recommend it, either you’re an art passionate or not, you’re gonna like it !

    Go to the Frick instead
    The experience here surely varies with the exhibitions on view, but these in the main trace the execrable arc of the last 60 years, so one is forced to rely on the foundational Thannhauser’s impressive collection of early modernists to justify a visit over, say, the Frick; unfortunately, it cannot be said the collection displayed justifies such a choice, being rather thin in many facets. There was no Klee, no Austrians, few Germans, and a lot of second rate works by first rate Frenchmen, plus some early Picasso. Faced with the crowds and the annoying Wright design, which forces the viewer to undergo a linear experience, I would much have preferred to spend this time at a better museum.

    Spectacular Going Dark exhibition
    The current Going Dark exhibition is a fascinating take by dozens of artists on the idea of personal visibility (and invisibility) without our culture. Wonderful work by well-known artists like Carrie Ann Weems, Kerry James Marshall, Henry Willis Thomas, Glenn Ligon, Faith Ringgold and many other artists who may be revelations to you. And, of course, the permanent Thannhauser Collection is worth a visit itself for anyone interested in art of the early modernists.

I visited the museum in 2014 and that was a mind blowing experience: brilliant exhibitions, unbelievable pictures, sculptures, impressionists art. Today I felt robbed of my $30. It was somewhat blm themed - all black, boring, pretentious, extremely untalented. So very disappointed.

Great Staff and exhibits
Thank you Dave for making my day ! This museum have folks that you can ask about art. They have badges so u know you can approach them. Genuine and very engaging. They don't just talk. They want to know what u think ! It brings all the museum alive ! Dave was GREAT but there were others but I didn't catch their names.
Also this museum was in a movie called The International were a gun battle was held in this venue. Nice to see the venue

I have visited a handful of times and always enjoy it. The permanent collection is nice and it is especially heart-warming to see that the museum is actively challenging colonial norms within the museum space. I do wish they would smudge the space, especially with the current exhibit as it is heavy and people leave all kinds of energy behind. I'm not surprised that people would have negative things to say especially at this time because the current exhibit amplifies voices that many folks are more comfortable with silencing. I am grateful for the shows the Guggenheim exhibits and will continue to proudly attend each time I am in NYC.

Building is iconic but the overall visit experience was lack lustre. Such a small amount of art on display with not a particularly strong exhibition. Disappointed that only the permanent collection gallery was open,
Felt it was incredibly overpriced as an entry ticket,
Managed to drag visit out to an hour because it was wet & snowy out but could easily have been out in 30-40 minutes, and we like art and often visit galleries/exhibitions.
My advice - walk up to see the building from outside. Then as the ticket scanning isn’t done until you get further inside, go in, look up and see the interior then exit through the shop.
Wish we had gone to the Met for 2 visits and just looked at the exterior of The Guggenheim.

Interesting building but so very little actual art to see for $30. Only like the very small permanent exhibit. Took less than an hour going as slowly as possible. And did i mention $30?

Has very good exhibitions and curating. Easy access to get in and out. The classic collection inside is still my favorite.

Went with my teen daughter to see the Frank Lloyd Wright building design. On the museum website, I purchased a $45 6-month membership which enabled me to buy a $5 guest ticket for my daughter. This was nearly the same as the daily rate of $30 for adults and $19 for students, but the membership gave us a 15 % discount in the gift shop, which we loved! The Guggenheim is smaller than expected, it's a quick visit to see all the artwork in an hour. The building was the star of the show here, not much on display in January 2024! We walked slowly up the spiraling walkway looking at artwork. By the time we reached the top level, we both felt a little unsteady and nearly dizzy from the constantly sloping floor. We took the elevator down. It was a strange design and a fascinating experience! I highly recommend it if you are interested in Frank Lloyd Wright. It's worth the price of admission just to walk inside, completely different than looking at photos!

Don't come expecting a real museum like Guggenheim in Venice or in Bilbao: this place is a location for temporary exhibitions.
If you are a fan of the specific ongoing exhibition, you might find it worth 30$, if not (like me) just avoid this place and go to MoMa, Metropolitan, Frick, Whitney.. or any other great NYC museum :)
