  • Always enjoy the MOMA, really loved the car exhibit this trip and the projections. Nothing like an afternoon full of art and culture.  more »
  • This museum has lots of great paintings. I just wish they limited the number of people going in during Covid and not be at full capacity.  more »
  • I've been here before but not for some years. They have a good selection of 20th century art and its well laid out. Well worth spending a few hours here if you like modern art.  more »
  • Probably my favorite in the museum category of NYC. They have a meandering layout that you can walk through... although some of our party had trouble finding specific locations or areas so it may be best to just stroll through. It takes about 3 hours to get through the exhibits. Even the free, public exhibits are amazing! Some fun and interactive exhibits, art installations that make you feel both large and small. It’s a great place.
  • Six stories high featuring modern art. Some of the “artworks” though might require more understanding of the artists’ conveyance of their message. There is definitely something for everyone to appreciate and enjoy. The place can be busy but there are nice quiet areas overlooking nice skylines to sit back and relax. Throw in the usual coffee shop and store - have fun!
  • Highly recommend getting the membership✅ if you live in New York! It’s $90 for a year (if you sign up for auto-renewal of your membership) while a regular adult ticket is $25. The members are allowed to bring guests who only have to pay $5 and have access to exclusive coat check (which now tags your items to your phone number so you don’t have to worry about losing the paper/plastic numbered sheets.) The revamped museum is worth a visit - it definitely feels a lot more spacious. The new gift shop looks cool from the outside because pedestrians can look down at the shop through the large glass windows. Looking forward to revisiting!
  • A beautiful place. I could wander here for days. Always something to see. Starry Night just tucked away in the corner? A blessing. No, seriously, take advantage of whatever discount you can get and take a day trip here. Bound to be busy but that doesn’t affect the experience. Always leave with something to think about! Just beware the gift shop - pricey as anything.
  • Extraordinary collection of formative cubist, surrealist, fauvist, futurist, expressionist and other key modern art movement masterworks, comfortably displayed in a building with suitably attractive style. Sometimes great films too. Here lives the generative center of western 20 c. shared visual art. Our artistic inheritance. Our shared cultural DNA. Wildly sublime
