If you like modern art and installations you'll probably like this museum. They have nice spacious rooms and at the time of my visit they were focused on video works some of which was excellent. They're a bit unclear about their fees.

It is always a pleasure to come to PS1. I sometimes wish they had quicker rotation of exhibits so I could come back here more often. Also there is a very nice little cafe which is fun to visit when the weather is nice.

Creative and interesting exhibits- excellent outpost of MOMA. Free for neighborhood residents. M. Wells Dinette has delicious food.

MoMA is a rather unique experience. Their providing space to artists to create original work which will be seen on a limited basis provides the viewer with the ability to spend time looking at the pieces and essentially become part of the show. They also have musical events. Get a copy of their brochure and find something you like. There... More

Disappointment, only a few items or installations were interesting for us. We were expecting so much but you must be a fan of this kind of art to spend more than 1 hour

Great place to see contemporary art. No matter what exhibit you encounter it will most definitely be a conversation starter. Summer outdoor installations are always worth a look and the parties aren't bad either.

PS1 rocks ! It's having been absorbed by MOMA has not changed its avant garde appeal,,,Thank God it does not collect the crowds of viewers like MOMA.There's always an interesting blend of mediums. Love M. Wells Dinette too... A great way to spend an afternoon in one of the "outer boroughs" !
