Glass marionettes depicting the crusades

Very interesting exhibitions. Especially liked the glass marionettes . The exhibition video of the Korean women in Terhan was disturbing.

It's a great museum to go to with friends, I think the fact that it's a school building gives a playfulness to the whole experience.

In the moment of my visit, there was a few installations in progress and almost the 70% of the museum wasn't open to public. I enjoy the Bjork's installation, that was awesome!

Located in Queens this museum is conveniently just steps away from the subway- 7 train. PS1 is an old public school converted into a charming museum highlighting groundbreaking contemporary art. I didn't eat there but the M.Wells Dinette looked great. If you have the time to take the 20 minute subway ride from Grand Central it's a real treat.

What a fabulous surprise this museum turned out to be. The concept of placing art installations in this massive former school is so innovative. You have that strange feeling of walking to your next classroom to learn. And there's so much to take in. Samara Golden's wildly creative and fascinating living space. Wael Shawky's incredibly creative and detailed Cabaret Crusades... More

It's a nice museum in a beautiful building. It's not too big - hence it's not overwhelming like its sister in Manhattan - and rather well-curated. I also like the front shop which focuses on art mags and journals, and the bookshop inside with great selection of recent art books.

this "museum" has everything to learn from european center of contemporary art (zkm, laboral, even the palais de tokyo in paris). Nothing to remember except the pretentious staff, the smell of kitchen, the hipsterization of the neighbogoud. Avoid !!!

A great location in Long Island City. In a converted primary school, challenging exhibitions are present. Well worth a visit.

Art is very subjective. Let's just say that we found this "interesting". There were basically 3 exhibits - a virtual reality movie with Bjork; a lengthy history of Islam (3 separate movies) featuring marionettes; and a tableau with a mirrored floor that I can't really explain -- it was interesting -- you have to see it. None were exactly my... More

Stayed in Court Square and I had a free ticket from the Uniqlo free MOMA night so I made my 2-hour quick visit here. My mistake! I should have allocated at least 4 hours here. There is a variety of exhibitions that shakes your mind. The building itself is integrated into art, or vice versa. Zero Tolerance exhibition struck my... More
