I was excited to visit the famous Guggenheim Museum for the first time, but ended up very disappointed. Most of the exhibits, and even the bathrooms were inaccessible to me due to my being a wheelchair - user. None of the security guards could even direct me to a wheelchair - accessible restroom, so I finally spoke to a gentleman who I think may have been a manager. I'm sorry I didn't write down his name. He was very friendly and went out of his way to escort me to a restroom that was accessible and back to where my friend was waiting for me. HE was the highlight of my visit, after taking a picture of the beautiful skylight, of course.
I would give this place 6 stars if I could. I’m not usually a fan of art museums but this one is amazing. The building is so cool, and the way they set it up so that all you have to do to see the art work is walk down... it’s great. This museum is a must see and I would go again for sure. Also the art there is really good and interesting.
We stopped by last year, specifically to see this beautiful building designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. It's every bit as aesthetically pleasing as you think it'll be, and the inside design lends itself beautifully to displaying the artworks on show. The feeling of light and space inside is amazing... I thought that outside, although beautiful, it looked really small and compact. There are cleverly hidden restrooms and a lovely little cafe to rest a while in. There's also a shop which sells all things Guggenheim and more. I was lucky enough to have my other half buy me a red Maia Luz red bobble bag. 😀
Great building - much nicer than the art in the building. Building is amazing and itself is a work of art, the circled stairs, the displays the layout. It is large and a bit confusing (I think on purpose) but a cool place to visit. The 'art' inside is what you might expect - nothing that I found interesting and I have been around the world at art museums. The building and name are why you go.
Not really my kind of museum, the art was very modern and abstract (what you expect from a modern art museum hence no affect on the rating). However if you're into this kind of art, there were lots of exhibits, and the building itself is amazing to look at, and is even more impressive when you're inside of it. Never been or seen a gallery like it before.
