The architectural design of the Guggenheim makes it easy to visit with kids. Shows are typically limited to the rotunda and work their way up from the bottom, but there's no reason you cannot take an elevator to the top and work your way down. Kids will have a clear sense of how much is left to see, and will enjoy winding their way down at a pace that suits them.
You will be required to check backpacks, large bags, large strollers and other large items.
