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

The current organization of the collection provides maximum enjoyment of the underrated collection of primarily early 20th century art including early Picasso, Delaunay, Kandinsky and many others. A very enjoyable and worthwhile one to two hour experience

Almost too good; my artist girlfriend was blown away by the art and didn't stop talking about it for at least half an hour. The Frank Lloyd Wright designed building is probably his best and it was pretty amazing too. Afterwards my girlfriend told me that it was like they'd crammed everything from her 3 year art degree into one... More

Nice art experience, free head set to hear/read additional info on particular pieces (though my husband's audio didn't work). Couldn't get into special exhibit--sold out by 10:20 when we got to the counter. Note, museum opened at 10 am, guess there were many online purchasers ahead of us. Stopped at the cafe for an early lunch, just adequate to curb... More

This gallery is housed in one of the most iconic buildings in New York and arguably the building itself surpasses the the art inside! We visited on 'pay what you like Saturday' (seemed like a sensible plan at the time), but the queues were horrendous! Definitely worth a visit to see the building! Tip - For modern art the MoMA...

An iconic structure with an amazing collection of modern art pieces. My favorites were Calder and Kandinsky. Manageable size. Audio tour included in the entrance cost. Best tip I received and took was to go to the top floor by elevator and walk down the spiral to the ground floor. Very nice gift shop.

The building is fabulous. The collection is spectacular. The greatest collection of Kandinskis anywhere. Recommended.

The architecture and the artwork are a powerful combination. Not to be missed. Elevator to the top and walk down to see the collection. We had a gourmet lunch in The Wright, the museums cafe. This is 5th avenue, so it's pricey (for lunch) but delish. The written descriptions of the art and times are excellent. Be sure and read... More

MOMA and the Guggenheim Museum are certainly not for everyone especially when you see what the admission is. The building is as much the attraction as the art. Love the Kandinsky's right off the main lobby, a number of Van Gogh and Picasso's. The app is a great idea especially the feature that allows you to see on the app... More

Hadn't been for a long time so visionaries exhibit gave us the reason to visit. Very busy rainy day! $25 each . Ok if you go for specific exhibit. Love the building . Love the exhibit . If you like modern art this is a good overview you must go.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
