Paid a visit to MoMA on my recent visit to NYC. Loved the Gaugin exhibit!!! The gallery itself is comprised of six floors. I only had time to the see the main aforesaid exhibit. But also had a chance to see the fifth floor where there were some stellar paintings by Henri Matisse, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Salvador Dali. That... More

If you are not a hardcore modern art guy, the exhibition is alright. It is like many other galleries a nice way to bend your traditional lines of thinking and to stimulate alternative ways of looking at things. However, what I will remember most is the old school building with the corridors, rooms and staircases full of character.

You love it or you don't. We went there with two kids, age 5 and 10. They did not bother with this. Strange things to see, and quite big to go visit for only an hour or two. With kids maybe better with other museum.....

because I found the entire thing pretentious and self-serving. I am usually a fan of modern art, but I was not at all impressed with what passed for exhibits. I have a friend in the area, so I will go back one day, if for no other reason than to write another review with confirms or contradicts this one. If... More

Mecca for hipster/artist. The building itself is rustic, if that is your thing you will love this place. I personally am not a big fan of modern art. Some of the exhibits were interesting, others could be garbage... There was a dome outside and I really didn't understand it's meaning or purpose...

One of the best museums in New York for contemporary art. They usually have a huge variety of exhibits running simultaneously, so you'll always find something interesting. They do a lot of other events there too, like book fairs, concerts, dance parties... I've never been disappointed.

Imagine an old public school, with its narrow hallways, tiny, cramped, ill-lit rooms, inadequate toilet facilities, and poor heating, cooling, and ventilation systems. Now imagine someone turning an old public school into an art museum after barely making any effort to address or correct any of these shortcomings, and you have MOMA PS 1. This weekend we visited MOMA PS... More

Very interesting place but I would advice to go there after Christmas and New Year because at this time are to many people and is difficult to see everything.

Art loving tourists should find this side trip out of Manhattan worthwhile. Funky location in an old city school. Tall ceilings, makes for ideal galleries. Decent bookstore with unique finds. Always has something worthwhile. Recommend web searching exhibits to see if they match your tastes before making trip, but at some point, do make the trip.
