This museum has a broad and diversified exhibition. However on the day I visited( a snow day on a weekend) the crowd at the museum was such that one could not enjoy the exhibits. People were sitting on the floor in halls and any available location. Indeed the density of the crowds did not let the HVAC system to keep... More

We tried to go on a rainy day and the queue was so long that we didn't even attempt it. Went the next day (dry) at about 3.30pm and had no problems getting in or feeling crowded

Long Island City is a Queens neighborhood right over the 59th Bridge, close to Manhattan. It's full of galleries and a few museums. PS 1 is a former public school turned into an outpost of MOMA. Although I am a long term member of MOMA, and live in Queens I rarely go to PS1. Why? When we got there we... More

Beautiful museum from an architectural standpoint. The impressionists on the 5th floor are worth seeing for their own sake I suppose. Although one can only wonder at what is the added value of seeing the originals vs say perhaps a life size reproduction in a less crowded venue. The conceptual art on the lower floors are absolutely inane. This is... More

PS 1 has been a great favorite of ours since its inception. At one time we would see artists working in individual rooms but even though it is more of an exhibition space now, there are still events where you can participate in performance art, moving art, and summer Saturday concerts. This is a museum that evolves and reinvents itself... More

P.S. 1 serves a niche. If you're hip and appreciate the [*very*] avant-garde, then you'll probably enjoy this. The museum features some nice outdoor spaces as well. I prefer MoMA -- the parent institution of P.S. 1 -- by a wide margin. The exhibits at the former are *much* more accessible. P.S. 1 can have some interesting items, but for... More

If you have kids then this place is not appropriate. There was nudity in some of the exhibits, which I found very graphic. I thought I would see paintings from artist who are known and some unknown artist but this museum only has exhibits of artist who are unknown. I would much rather have spent my money in the original... More

Hello, you have surely anough info on the moma, but do not forget to go also to the excellent annex, called PS1, 2 metrostations away, free with the ticket. For the moma, I recommend to buy it with the citypass, it comes cheaper, and you can ride also for example the "beast", a fantastic boat ride... PS: the PS1 is... More
