Glass marionettes depicting the crusades

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

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

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.
