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

Whatever the exhibition, the building is the highlight. The organic shape plays with light and forms to create an hypnotic experience. Smaller rooms and the café are worth visiting as well.

The building exterior was a work of art, and that was reflected on the inside's gently sloping floors, from the top to the ground floor. Crisp white walls (the best!) to display the paintings. Just beautiful!!

We were disappointed to find out the museum was changing out the Rotunda exhibits but decided to go in anyway since the fee was discounted, what a mistake. Probably 70 to 80% of the artworks are displayed in the Rotunda. In addition the elevator is...More

This is the type of museum that thinks someone taking a picture of their hand giving the finger to the White House is art. To be fair that was in the gift shop. The real art included some large screen videos. One black and white...More

Beautiful architecture. The spiral display was closed, so it was a bit of a disappointment, so we did not go in for a tour. Showed the kids what great architecture looks like and moved on

We were disappointed that the circular portion of the museum was closed for installation of a new exhibit, but there was plenty of other items to see. Our favorite was the permanent collection of paintings and sculptures on the second floor. There was also an...More

The Guggenheim Museum is located inside a classic Frank Lloyd Wright building, with a famous continuous curved gallery winding from the first floor all the way to the top. Just the walk up this spiral around the central atrium is worth the price of admission....More
