  • Van Gogh's Starry Night should be in Amsterdam, not in NYC. Understandably, people want to stand in front of this masterpiece and take pictures and selfies and absorb its beauty, but they act...

  • Cool, comfortable, too sprawling to cover without a rest on a few of the plenty benches provided. Also a great book/gift shop and lobby area. The art selections are exciting.

  • Best museum in the world. You can spend days and hours here and every time you walk through it’s a new experience. Love grabbing breakfast and coffee and taking a walk. Sometimes through the Rambles and sometimes by Strawberry Fields. Love people watching and love watching the rowers on the lake. Beautiful scenery and perfect picture taking.
  • IF you like modern art, this is the place for you. The service was awesome; there has been security everywhere, and the museum was super clean. If you DO NOT LIKE modern art (like me and my husband) do not go there. It's not worth it. I gave 5 starts because the Museum was nice and clean and the staff was friendly.
  • I feel a bit silly giving a review of this museum. It's world famous! Arguably one of the finest (modern art) museums anywhere on the planet. Even if modern art isn't your thing (it's not mine - my knowledge is very limited) for a maximum of $25 it's got to be worth a visit. The people here to help are super knowledgeable so tell them what you might like and have a walk around. Just don't make the mistake I made and only realised there are multiple towers, each with their own displays, as I was leaving. That's why I suggest speaking to someone. They enjoy helping! The waitress who brought me my excellent lemon meringue and latte offered me some advice on where I should head next. Visiting here isn't about bragging rights, it's about cost effectively establishing whether or not modern art is for you. My guess is you'll find something you like!
  • Wonderful excursion into the world of younger artists mixed with the old school master pieces like Monet’s Lily ponds. Some installations truly stretch your mind and lead you to new places in your thoughts, others stay an enigma which language you don’t understand. A wonderful contrast to the Metropolitan Museum. Both should be enjoyed together.
  • This museum is absolutely lovely!! During my visit today, the crowds were really low. I'd recommend visiting this time of year (and when the weather is this cold) because some of the exhibits were completely empty. I'd say this is the most unique art museum I've ever been in. I'm not well versed in appreciating art, but this was much more than the standard image of empty rooms with classical paintings hanging on the walls. I think it offers something interesting for people who aren't traditional art fans
