The Guggenheim is for sure among the best museums I have ever visited. The collection is small but the way the art is placed makes for a totally different experience. It's difficult to describe but you get a totally distraction free feeling as you see each work in it's own brightly lit white alcove because the space is so organic and unlike anything else. Beyond that it's great to see such a famous Frank Lloyd Wright Building. Tickets are a steal at $25 and crowds are very well managed. The museum store is quite nice as well and worth a look even if you aren't shopping.
Possibly one of the most unique spaces in ny. It has a beautiful entry space. The exhibits here are always interesting. The main exhibition is usually along the ramp in the center with minor exhibits on the side galleries. They also have a nice little permanent collection in one of the side galleries. Note that the idea was to start at the top and work your way down. The main exhibit is usually set up this way. Not a cheap museum though.
The Museum Guggenheim in New York itself is an work of art. It was designed by the world famous architect Frank Lloyd Reid. Actually the real name of the museum is Solomon Guggenheim. It is located in one of the most prestigious and luxurious parts of New York, namely the 5th Avenue, opposite the Central Park. The building itself is very strange and bizarre, and really there is no way to be passed over without being noticed. But the true riches are still kept behind its walls. Here you will find paintings by Picasso and masterpieces of other famous artists. There are often held exhibitions on various topics and for this purpose, are usually collected works from all around the world
It may be my own personal taste but this museum is designed beautifully, but the art is presented oddly. Some really incredible work is hidden in odd corners. At the time they had a discount because the circular stairs was in the middle of redecoration, but for the price we paid there was barely anything to see
Smaller than you may expect if you are seeing it for the first time. The spiral walkway is really cool and is the main draw of the museum beyond the art that is inside it. Once you walk to the top then you can walk down by visiting each floor, which has a section that comes out from the spiral. Makes sure the museum is fully open before you go. They shut down the spiral when they change exhibitions, and it really diminishes your experience.
