  • Branch of the famous New York Museum that has a beautiful garden and several works of art by Van Gogh, Rembrand, Picasso, etc. Admission is $ 25, however, offers free admission on Fridays from 16 to 21.

  • A little pricey ... $ 25, but it's worth it. The works on display are many and although the planes are 6 the building turns out to be a little distracting and turn with a good orientation without omitting anything.

  • Getting here proved to be a little tricky, due to some subway rerouting over the weekend, but it ended up being well worth it, even if we had to walk more than we wanted to get there. I would say if y...  read more »
  • From the MoMA PS1 website: Free Admission as a Gift to New Yorkers in honor of MoMA PS1's 40th Anniversary, made possible by the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation. Through October 15, 2017 all residents of New York’s five boroughs receive free entrance to all exhibitions during regular museum hours (show proof of residence). I came for the Summer Saturday "warm-up" series that features live music outdoors. Luckily, my friend and I had free tickets since she is a Long Island City local resident. Otherwise, the event tickets are a bit expensive ($22 in advance, $25 at door). There is a cash bar, a shallow wading pool (?), and a misting room outside as well. It was scorching out, and the misting room felt great. The music changes each week for this series and it was fun to people watch - mostly young hipsters when I was there. This event runs from 3pm-9pm, but the exhibits inside (not air conditioned) close at 6pm. Make sure to get there in time to see the small collections of modern art. And don't forget to look down at the floor before you leave - there is a tiny video exhibit using a hole in the floor. Almost everyone missed it until they saw us crouching down to view it.
  • Pretty decent Moma experience. It isn't the Moma in Manhattan and the art is much more modern, but it is a cool thing to have in LIC. LIC residents get in free.
  • Awesome venue for alternative music and generally cool spot for some daytime weekend fun. Drinks are new York reasonably priced and was cool that you're able to tour around the museum while bands are playing outside
  • If you purchase a ticket to MoMa, you can use that same ticket for admission to MoMa PS1. LIC residents receive free admission.
  • Great art and fascinating exhibits. Very unique and perspective-changing. Highly recommended.
