So easy! Booked the tickets at breakfasttable and went straight in to the museum via info desk without any waiting 😍
Took my 13 year old to a few museums to introduce her to art and this was her favorite. The building itself is a work of art: beautiful, inspirational and a key reason why the Guggenheim is a wonderful place. There are no confusing rooms, no getting lost and you don't feel overwhelmed at all. This allows you to focus on the art itself and it is incredible. A very special treasure.
Architecture was the experience I sought for my visit with my son and grandsons. They understood that Frank Lloyd Wright’s last joke was this building in that he showed the world that architecture was supreme to art. We enjoyed our visit. Thank you. And now you can come to Manchester NH and visit two FLW houses.
the current show in the main rotunda of the Guggenheim isn't that interesting it's not even art and it says so it's a discussion about humans impact on the environment to the agriculture and then some of the main permanent colors for shut down for renovation as well so I would save the 25 bucks and go to the MEt next time
Very cool building and capable of a volume of people, great art work, nicely laid out lots of room to take in the atmosphere. A must see if your into architecture and fine art.
I did like the skip the line access because on the day I have visited it was snowing. The Collection for me was the best!
Highly interesting, if you like modern art. So check which temporary exhibitions are shown prior to booking. With my voucher everything was ok, just change at information desk for a valid ticket and avoid waiting at cash desk.
The gallery located at the south end of the High Line. Exterior and interior building design more impressive than the photos suggest. During our visit a lot of space over several floors was devoted to the work of Chinese artists and experimental art post 1989, so there was a limited display of the more traditional artists such as Kandinsky and Jackson Pollack, which was disappointing.
Wasted money on the jump-the-line vouchers as we had to join the main queue to collect our tickets.
Not our best experience in NYC. If your time is short, go to the Met and the MOMA.
The Guggenheim Museum is wonderful, and this is not why I am rating it only 2 stars. It states, Skip the Line Access, when you purchase the Vouchers. WE were not able to skip the lines. We had to stand in line, like everyone else, to get the tickets, as these are Vouchers only. We had the same situation at American Museum of Natural History.
Skip the line access rules! BUT, there is only one floor of classical artwork and the other SIX! 6 are Chinese modernism. IT would be better with a little more focus on regular art and not so much emphasis on Chinese modernism. Maybe 3 floors Chinese and 4 full time is more appropriate. Had I know this, I would have skipped the interior altogether, as the Frank Lloyd Wright building itself, is a sight to behold. VERY DISAPPOINTING and not at all what I expected. Will DEFINITELY check what is to be exhibited for future art museum pursuits.
Designed by visionary American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and completed in 1959, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is home to one of the world’s finest collections of modern and contemporary art—and is itself a masterpiece.
