Owner description: The circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building is as much of a draw as the museum's collection of modern art.
Reviewed April 4, 2018

The building itself is amazing...designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, many see this building as one of his masterpieces. The design sets it apart from all the lavish, historical buildings in the Upper East Side. The Museum collection sets nicely in this building.

The feature artist at this time is Dahn Vo, a Danish artist born in Vietnam, and I must say is not my cup of tea. Perhaps I just do not understand what he is trying to say.

The permanent collection, what is being shown right now, is very well done. Picasso, Gauguin, Manet, Bonnard...so many masters.

Definitely a must visit when in NYC.

With admission, you can get free audio tour headsets - you just provide them with your ID (although note the sign said no passports). They have a kids tour of the building, which let's all admit is a showstopper, that my kids really enjoyed listening too. They listened to a few other "near me" topics on art on display not specifically for kids, but they didn't care for those as much. We easily spent an hour and half touring the building and the impressionist gallery.

I visited Guggenheim several times over the last 20 years. This time I was shocked that they do not display the great main collection anymore. There is just one room with few pieces from the main collection. The rest of the great building is occupied by an underwhelming ultramodern conceptual exhibition. This is big mistake - their main collection is brilliant, on par with MOMA, and should continue to be prominently displayed. Funny that the shop sells souvenirs from the main collection with Chagall, Picasso, Modigliani, but the pieces themselves are nowhere to be seen.
Now sadly do not recommend, until they put their main collection back on display.

What do I have to say? I'm always impressed by the wonderful building of Frank Lloyd Wright and it's collection. When you're lucky you will be there during an opening or evening when they have music.

Don't come here for the art, come for the architecture and pay homage to a great American architect. The exhibits tend to be avant garde and bizarre. Do not fixate on that. Appreciate the organic structure of the building, its elegance and soft lines. Take the elevator to the 6th floor, to top floor, and work your way slowly down. Look at the angles from the edges and in between staircases, look down and go to the side rooms. Look up at the very top towards the roof. You get a sense of even living in a space that is not only organic, but very modern, almost as if you are in a space shift and about to just cross paths with ensigns from Star Trek. When done, you will be glad you came for the homage to Frank Lloyd Wright--he was truly ahead of his time.
