This is a world-class contemporary art museum. Do not miss the magazine store at the entrance, many hard to find periodicals are available. The M. Wells Dinette is the cherry on top.

MoMA is the essence of the bohemian side of artsy NY. Great painting there. Starry Night just one of the highlights Good price. Glad we went.

Offshoot of MoMA often has large scale exhibits of works that are more contemporary living artists rather than classic "modern" works of artists who passed fifty years ago. In the spring and summer there are weekend events with artistic installations, often interactive. Check their website for more info. Especially worth seeing is the top floor sun room at dusk. The...

What's not to love about this museum? Okay maybe the hoards of people, but after a while you get used to it. Thoroughly enjoyed this museum, seeing Van Gogh, Picasso, Dali, Matisse, Pollock, Monet and Warhol were just some of the highlights. Make sure to pick up the audio guide when you enter, it's really worth it to listen to... More

We went to PS1 Museum on September, 21. Arriving there, we learned that this museum has only temporary exhibitions - and all of them were in preparation! Kind of weird for a museum with only temporary exhibitions to have all of them closed together! But, if we waited one hour, and gave a volunteer donation (?), we could participate in... More

Well, there wasn't anything showing but they still wanted us to pay. We took the guided tour around PS1 and saw the permanent installations, I think there was five. What made it al worth while was the view from the top of the building.

At first thought when you hear a "rave" at a museum your mind really starts to wander. A unique experience indeed from their 'Warm Up" parties that take place on Saturday's from Memorial Day to one week past labor Day. I went to the closing party and it was an incredible experience. There is a HUGE outdoor space for people... More

This reconditioned public school has had some wonderful shows there. They have a unique space allowing them to mount larger shows. Elevators help with the transition. additionally there is a wonderful restaurant located on the premesis. There is not a lot of traffic there at this moment but I think that the ease or parking and public transpotration allows it... More

I went to MoMA PS1 Queens yesterday with some friends for the MoMA summer fest and it was just great: there was a summer party with a DJ for electronic music, beverages, food, waiters and...art!! The exhibitions on the first and basement floors were still accessible to the public, and so was the great bookshop on the first floor. It... More
