  • This museum worth a half day at least stay. I recommend guide, even if all the works are not commented. Very good memories for us.

  • For those who like art, this museum is a true paradise. Here we can find one of the largest art collections in the country. But get ready because the rooms are many and you'll need plenty of time to enjoy all that the site offers.

  • My friend this museum is very great, we spend a day inside, there's a lot of stories and artifacts of various civilizations, we get a device that guides us through the Museum and explain each sector and each account history and very cool artists works but tiring too, is very worthwhile.

  • Modern art is not my main go to art, although the impressionists are great. That said, this is a very nice museum that is well laid out and with many good pieces. We went specifically for Starry Night (as awesome as expected) but also loved the Degas exhibit and the store was very nice too. Can definitely recommend a visit to anyone interested in art, even though the $25 entry is a bit excessive. As an your tickets online and skip the line. You just have to show them your purchased ticket on your phone, way easier than waiting to see a cashier.
  • The Bruce Conner: It's All True is an amazing exhibit that spans the career of the prolific American artist and allows you to follow his creative evolution. There are a variety of media from paintings to drawings to sculptures to films on display, and his work in rich in complexity and rife with social commentary. Definitely worth a visit before it moves on. As always, you can also enjoy the permanent galleries which are filled with works by Van Gogh to Mondrian to Dali to Basquiat. And don't forget to pop into the lovely sculpture garden.
  • Can't say anything about MOMA that's not already been said. If you've never been, you owe it to yourself to make a visit. Love it or hate it, MOMA's permanent collection contains many first class examples of the art work that continues to influence our culture...from the clothes we wear, the shows we watch on TV & the 'look' of today's all got started in the modern art world & MOMA's got it.
  • Modern art, or what passes itself of as art is not my thing. I just miss the beauty and intricacies of real art. That being said this museum still have some great pieces in the 4th floor. I do love Impressionist and post impressionist art. And there is a nice collection of that here. Do not miss Water Lilies by Monet and a few other pieces by him. Large collection by Picasso (as modern as I can appreciate) and a decent collection of Cézanne and then of course Starry Night by Van Gogh. This museum is great after Musee d'Orsay. The 4th floor of MoMa compliments the d'Orsay
  • As much as I loved the old moma and knew it like the back of my hand, I'm finally embracing the new space and realizing how wonderful it truly is. Membership is definitely worth it if you visit it than a few times a year. Plus, there's some cool perqs for members
