Expert review of The Guggenheim Museum

An iconic Frank Lloyd Wright building with great exhibitions.

If anything could outshine this group of major works by Picasso, Chagall, and Van Gogh, it is the the iconic 1959 Frank Lloyd Wright structure that houses it at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 89th Street. It’s one of the great masterpieces of Modernist architecture with its cantilevered facade and interior ramp winding up through the massive cylindrical core.

Price advice: 

Tickets are US$18 for adults and free for children under 12.
