  • The best part of the Museum is its 3rd floor, it is better go up and go down from there. In most of the rooms there is furniture for one admire the works of art while you take a break

  • Always a pleasant visit because of their permanent collection. There are usually solid special exhibits. I was pleasantly surprised by a photography collection by an artist I hadn't heard of. Great in the summer, and to avoid bad weather in winter although that is the busiest time of year. The gift shop us always fun. If you want to splurge a bit, the cafe is good, too.
  • There are a few good pieces here from a variety of good artists, but I've seen better collections. VanGough's Starry Night is the main attraction in my opinion. There are a couple from Picasso, Monet, Cezanne and one from Pollock and Warhol. Ticket prices are reasonable at $25. It got pretty crowded by noon on a weekday. We started at 10:30, when it opens, and went to the top floor and worked our way down. I recommend doing the same. Give yourself at least 3-4 hours.
  • Always a great museum to stop into! We tend to go on the free Friday afternoons, aiming to arrive an hour or so after it begins (the line usually stretches around the block at the beginning, but within an hour it dies right down). Whenever we go, we choose a section and really spend some time there, rather than trying to see it all! We stopped into the store recently, which is filled with all sorts of cool and funky things!
  • My boyfriend and I took a trip to NYC and this was our first stop. We are both designers and love art, and the MoMA did not disappoint. The building is beautiful in its minimalist design, with no detail left unturned. The outdoor water feature is stunning. We saw just about every famous art piece you can think of, and a really cool history of fashion exhibit.
  • This museum is beautiful. I visited for my graduation instead of going to the ceremony and it was a great decision. It was honestly a surreal experience being surrounded by such amazing and authentic works of art and so many people who also love art. I spent a long while meandering around and looking at art. I was elated to see the Monet's enormous "Water Lilies" in person. I highly recommend this museum, but it is very crowded. If you want to take pictures of works you like, you will have to be patient with other patrons to get the shot you want.

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.
