  • A very unique museum! Went here with the kids and they also enjoy the collections. Most of them are paintings and sculptures plus some creative objects. They put displays on the wall and on the floor. Very creative. They also have temporary exhibitions It is also part of the NYC ID card free museum so we get here for free. The souvenirs are cute as well.
  • A small contemporary art gallery that is partnered with the main MoMA museum in Manhattan. The works are a bit more...progressive shall we say? So not the kind of place you want to visit with your grandmother. Very easy to get from MoMA to PS1 by subway.
  • Unbelievable that someone will consider this as art. They had an empty room bigger than any apartment in NYC with a stuffed parrot doll and a laser pointer. WHAT. The guy how did the wall paint is a better artist than anyone on display. See pic as evidence, a cup on the floor is displayed as art.
  • This is the best museum I've ever been to. Its unique atmosphere (an old school) is an exhibit in itself. There is such a diverse variety of exhibits within it that it is an easy place to fall in love with. Each door opens to another world, whether it's a room where the sky is the roof or a room for an escape into a virtual reality fantasy. There are things to explore around every corner, unglorified details to appreciate in every nook and cranny.
  • My friends and I went to this event there called "celebrate the lunar new year". It was so hype. We checked out the art they have on display which was awesome. And they had a party in one of the rooms which was great.
