When asked at sometimes how an art piece or an artist can be displayed by the museum I was mentally displaced.Some believe the artist must have died, or near to death, but I strongly believe phenomenal expressions call for attention.

Unfortunately, the permanent collection of the Guggenheim does not live up to its reputation. Very few examples of Monet, Picasso, and other modern artists you would expect to see at a museum of its caliber. The building in itself is an attraction, although it is going through some renovation at the moment. The Guggenheim does bring excellent exhibits, and that is what you should go see. From Aztec culture to architecture, they never disappoint.

Pros: Exhibits

Cons: Permanent collection not as good as one would expect, pricey

You really must take the time to see The Guggenheim while in NYC. The building itself is worth the trip and the ongoing Kandinsky exhibit is worth the price of admission ten times over. Right now, the outside facade is under renovation...which is dissapointing. But there is quite enough going on inside to keep you happy. Allow enough time to see the permanent collection also.

It seems to me that the world of art has gotten a bad name from those of you who know very little to nothing about it. I don't understand why people have such a close-minded view of art right now when we're so accepting of other things, but art has extended its parameters and just because some people don't understand it doesn't mean that it's all horrible. Although the special exhibition isn't spectacular, it does have some good things to offer. Instead of going in there with a mind that painting and Impressionism is where art ended, try to understand that there's so much more to art than that.

Except for the permanent display with Picasso, Monet and others, the show was awful. Large screen videos with people just standing there isn't usually considered art. The 3 photos of the underbelly of society (the pregnant woman, the naked crazy mom and the guy with the lawn in his living room) were really good though.

Pros: permanent collection, underbelly photos, the building

Cons: really bad exhibit

The star of the show is the Wright building. It's terrific. Most of the museum was devoted to "Moving Pictures", which was horrible. What remained of permanent collection was fine, but the building is still the star.

Pros: Building, Cafe, Location

I thought the Guggenheim was a good museum.

I liked the way the spiraling centre of the museum held the temporary exhibitions, with the permanent collections in rooms off the central area.

Every other room seemed to be a gift shop. I went to see art, not to buy crap. If you happen to love the exhibit that's there, then great; if you don't, you've just thrown away your money.

We were on a short vacation to NYC and had time for one museum visit - without a doubt we knew it had to be the famous Frank Lloyd Wright designed Guggenheim. It's a little confusing to navigate between the original building and the expansion that connects to it.

Pros: Historical, Lovely location, Not too expensive

Cons: Needs renovating, Confusing floor plan

As as Brit taking my first trip to NYC I was looking forward to visiting the city's famous museums. What a dissapointment.
The Guggenheim has a small permanent display and the building is very difficult to find your way around. However the worst thing has to be the staff. I have never experienced such obnoxious people working in a gallery.
Whilst looking at the cubist displays all I could hear were the guards shouting at each other about their favourite superhero and calling down to the women in the gift shop.
The women in the gift shop were an experience themselves. More suited on Rikki Lake all they did was whine about their intricate love lives and talk to customers as though they were an inconvenience.
I couldn't wait to leave this museum. The staff were horrendous though at least they've given me an amusing story to tell friends. Avoid!

People really like to hate on the Guggenheim these days, and its true there's good reason to do so. The global expansion, the blockbuster aesthetic, the dubious payoffs from show subjects like Armani, the patchy permanent collection.... But nevertheless, I kind of like the way the museum has given in to crass commercialism. Some of those blockbuster shows have been fun--the Gehry retrospective was fantastic, Nam June Paik was cool, I even thought the Brazil show was worthwhile solely for the incredible altar they installed. And given that Frank Lloyd Wright's design has always overshadowed the art here, I think this devotion to spectacle is entirely in keeping with the museum's tradition.

This is my favorite Manhattan museum. I love the Frank Lloyd Wright design. It's a genius way to view a collection with a spiral layout. I usually walk to the top and then pick my way down returning to my favorites as I descend.Of

the guggenheim museum itself is a work of art. and the art they display is simply amazing. unfortunately, the museum is relatively small, and so you have to go when the time is right for the exhibits you are interested in.

If anything you can appreciate the design of the building, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The exhibits can be hit or miss, but that's with most museums. Most of the time the exhibits are great, from motorcycles to Matthew Barney. Only

Best for school-aged kids, the Guggenheim is free for kids under age 12, and can be appealing if viewed at their pace. The exhibits go from bottom to ...
