The New Museum is the only museum in New York City exclusively devoted to contemporary art.

  • The Pipilotti Rist (Pixel Forest) exhibit is what drew us here--it was really creative and innovative. But the $18 admission is a bit steep for 3 (or 4?) fairly small floors of gallery space. Just mak...  more »
  • For modern and beautiful has no collection, only exhibitions of modern artists. I saw the expo of Pipilotti, with spectacular videos. The best, for me, was a fashion empowered that I published in my face.

  • I love art. The new museum was very enjoyable. If you love art and have 25 bucks to spare drop by and enjoy yourself. It was very enlightening. Must visit in your the NYC area.

  • We have been here for the Pay-what-you-wish-day - luckily. More than the half of the exhibition space was closed, the rooftop of cause as well and for the theatre in the cellar you needed an extra ticket. We wanted to see the architectural space, which was also quite disappointing because the rooms including the staircase are already quite worn off and need a make-over, the bathrooms were in quite poor condition. And since so many floors were closed you didn't het any idea of the spacial connections. So if you are here to see SANAAs museum, come on thursday evening but dont pay more than the recommended 2$ per person.
  • A great museum. The Pipilotti Rist exhibit was cool, didn't make it to the rooftop, but will for sure go back.
  • Museum open free on Thursday after 7pm--nice. But only one floor has exhibits, and not very interesting ones. Will probably be more interesting after other floors re-open.
  • Pretty fun and weird exhibits. If you're a modern art junkie, this is the place to go. They also have a skyview floor at the top which gives you beautiful views of downtown Manhattan and the east side.
  • I'm giving this 4 because I love art but a 3.5 is more in line. All of the exhibits at the time of our visit were video installations and I find that medium to be lacking (so if you love video you might love it).
