  • Modern museum with very big names of artists. Nice collection. Beautiful structure. Glad to have been able to visit New York in 2016. 2017 of the works are on loan to Paris Foundation Louis Vitton.

  • The MOMA is iconic, comprehensive, and impressive. The layout of the museum is so practical and although there are at least 150,000 pieces of art, one doesn't feel so lost as it is just so practical a...  more »
  • I visited the MoMA when the temporary exhibition was of Bourgeois and I was speechless. The rooms are carefully detailed for not afford to lose even one passage of the artistic history of the authors. Continuing uphill to the permanent exhibition passing through contemporary art up to the splendid Italian authors of our modernity as De Chirico, Boccioni (as well as many others); lest we forget Picasso (I spent a long time admiring Les Demoiselles d'Avignon; then Pollock; Cezanne, Van Gogh, Monet ... To list them all would be impossible but what I would like to convey is the strength of the iconographic path through which we accompanied from one room to another. We can only get out more aware and much more sensitive. Recommended to fans and art experts like me exactly how I recommend it to those who would like to approach this wonderful world.

  • Yes, they have great works of art, but I expected more, especially for the amount of space and the hype this place gets. The audio tour sucks (luckily it's free), couldn't get the apparatus to work whatsoever. It made no sense! You could click on random articles it had available, but if you wanted to hear about the particular room you were in, or follow a suggested route the machine is supposedly capable of giving, you just couldn't get it! Ellis Island had a much simpler and effective audio tour thingy. I was disappointed with the $30 bucks I spent to go here. Should've gone to another museum. You can tour this place in under 2h easily.
  • This was my first visit to this museum and I got impressed. The first thing you should do is buy the tickets online so you don't have to make the lines and find special deals. It will take you at least 2 hours to see the 5th floor with serene and review all the pieces like they merit. Have self-control because this is the most crowded floor and there will be a lot of people specially around the most well known artworks. The people at the exhibits are kind and won't be over you as long as you don't cross the lines or try to touch. It's a Museum so don't touch anything. You can take pictures, no flash. Appreciate this delightful museum every day if you can.
  • Rude attendents. Seriously you guys need to get a life. Interesting visit to say the least. They had these benches that were made by prisoners. They had them placed without any display barriers yet had an attendant just waiting to pounce on everyone that tried to sit. It was hilarious. They were in fact putting on a show without knowing it. Actually modern art includes have canvas that actually has nothing on it. I missed my calling!
  • MoMa is a great place to visit any day of the week. I would recommend that you check the schedule of events to learn about the great events and guests that frequent the museum. If you are looking for a respite from the loud city, head to the outdoor sculpture garden and cafe areas. Peace awaits.
  • This is one of the best designed museums in the world. Collection is amazing, but do not take my word for it, just come and take a look around. "Suggested donation" is not really a huge concern, just may make you feel uncomfortable. I'm also not a huge fun a the lighting here, since you get almost no right angle to view large pictures.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
