  • The exhibits focus. on design and fashion. The Judith Lieber exhibit ends on 8/6/17. It alone is worth the visit. The purses are spectacular mini sculptures done in with exquisite detail. The counter-...  more »
  • Not too small, not too big, just right size. The exhibits change every few months, so you can go back again and see something entirely different. Clothing from the 1965-75 era was a blast from the pas...  more »
  • Very close to the shops at Columbus Circle. I came to MAD to see the Judith Lieber exhibit. There is also a nice museum shop there with a wonderful selection of beautiful jewelry and other items.  more »

  • If you've been to any design museums across the globe, this one is surprisingly disappointing. It's very small..only enough space for about 2 exhibitions... no permanent displays as far as I could see. Ironically the actual floor plan and design of the building sn't great.. only 2 very very slow elevators that you might as well push the button - view the displays and by then the elevator will be arriving(no guarantees) Glad I didn't pay ..
  • It appears new but not spacious. There're not many exhibits on the floors. Photos are allowed but without flash. Elevators, stairs & restrooms are available. The time spent in here is less than an hour.
  • Fairly short museum, good for a 1 hour tour. Different exhibition in every floor. The artist studios are located on the top floor, make sure to check it out. Located couple of minutes walk from central park.
  • This museum has 5 floors, each floor has different theme with different artists. I liked it overall; interesting art pieces (I loved coral crochet) but i thought it was bit small and thought it could have done better job of installation array. To be honest i dont know if it's worth the admission fee but It is pay-what-you-wish on Thursday night so check it out on Thursday night!
  • Great artist space. A lot of exhibitions and the residency floor allows you to speak to thw artist.
