  • Located in Queens. Two blocks from the metro. A renovated old school. The space is spectacular. The distribution of what were classrooms in small galleries is a marvel. The charming restaurant and bar. Intense agenda of activities. We agree with a fair of Ilustadores.

  • Almost the entire space appeared to be closed for rennovation when I visited (sept 2017). A couple of quite interesting items, a few rather dull ones (seriously displaying the building's old boilers w...  more »
  • I visited MoMa PS1 during Christmas time and it was a great place for contemporary art. It's located in Queens, close to the 21st street/Van Alst subway station.  more »

  • Our group consisted of 5 adults and two 7- year old girls. We loved it. The interactive nature of some of the displayed art, the odd little surprises, and the Escher- like staircases, made it we'll worth the visit. And the food in the cafeteria is delicious.
  • A must see if you're into the arts. They always have challenging programming - some you'll love and some you'll hate. But you always leave thinking and talking about what you saw. Also, a great bookstore (Well 2 actually) and a fun café where you can eat at student's desks. Beautiful space. Can't recommend this enough.
  • I actually prefer this museum to the regular MoMA. They only have a few permanent exhibits, so every time you go it's like visiting a new museum. I've told my friends several times that this is where MoMA keeps the stuff that is too wierd for them. Some of my favorite exhibits over the years have been water sculptures, sound installations and videos. Many of the exhibits also have a political or social message, which makes you contemplate things even if you don't agree with the message.
  • I feel lucky to have this in my home area. Amazing art installations that changes every month or two. Really really good place for art explorer.
  • This year installation 'lumen' is amazing. Try the negroni from M Wells cocktails! Perfect for a hot summer afternoon party.
