Amazing space

Former school turned into a spacious museum. Fun experience if just for the wandering around. Lots of contemporary art.

We got in for free with our MOMA admission tickets, and we got in MOMA on a free Friday 1600 - 2000. So we got to visit both for free. Took Metro 7 came out at Court Square Station, a 5 minute walk, you can see the giant MOMA PS1 painted on a building from both the train and the... More

We went for a special event. Several DJs were playing. Nice crowd (a lot of hipsters!!), organization can be better: we had to wait in line to buy tickets for drinks and wait in line to get the drinks, same with food.... Also, the expositions closed at 6pm (right when we arrived).

Great thing to do if you have some time to kill. It's a modern art muesum that takes place in an old school building, hence the name "MOMA P.S. 1". You'll be there anywhere from 1-2 hours, and from what I remember on the weekends they have these free outdoor parties on the property. Wouldn't say it would be my... More

We stumbled upon this old school turned museum and like what we found. For a modest admission price we watched 3 videos and saw some very interesting marionettes.

My wife and I spent the day in LIC with another couple to check out the art scene. We first spent a couple of hours at the Noguchi Museum - and that was a wonderful experience! MOMA PS1, however, was another story. Other than the great lunch we had in the PS1 café, the afternoon was a waste. I consider... More

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!
