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

Wow,wow,wow.... Set on the Avenue of Museums and Central Park opposite what a fantastic building and the way it has been designed both inside and out is a credit to all who designed this gallery. Art work is set out in a spiral with plenty...More

Even if you have no interest in architecture, this building will be instantly recognisable. If you are visiting Central Park, there is no excuse not to drop by, even if it is just to take a quick photo.

An amazing collection of art in an amazing building. We spent a good couple of hours there enjoying all the paintings and sculptures. In fact we didn't realise it was close to closing time when we left. It fits in well with the Met, and...More

We have visited NYC many times, but for some reason have never made it up to the Guggenheim until recently. The architecture alone is worth a visit. This building was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The art is a mixture of modern and classic. Not...More

I don't know if I enjoyed this museum more because of the building design or because of the artwork in the building, but it's a must-see. If you are a Vasily Kandinsky fan you will really love this museum.

The Guggenheim museum in New York exceeded my expectations. The building and art collection are jaw drawing. I did not know which way to look!

The architecture alone makes a visit worthwhile, but clearly the collection is very important, though for obvious reasons is focused on a particular stretch of time. Good match to the Peggy Guggenheim in Venice. Start at the top and walk down.

Uptown NYC. Take The elevator to The top floor. Walk slowly down every floor. Some of this is to modern and avantgarde for me. But The whole concept. The cafe. The story is most def worth while. Cool giftshop too. Spend like 2 hours and...More

I'm not really a modern art fan, but would love to see the building. I just wanted to check how much it costs so I can see if it would be worth me going to visit or not. Or if there is any way I can go inside (lobby/reception) etc without actually going into the exhibits.

You can do the lobby but you will miss out on the building. It was 25$. Which included the coat check. The amazing views are from that fabulous spiral staircase, from the top down.
I want to visit the museum next week, end of October, I am architect and like to see everything, about the interior architecture. Will be possible to visit all pavilions? Thanks

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