Incredible collection. you can spend hours or days in this museum. the space is fantastic with different areas with different architecture. Note that the museum ticket has a regular price, but you can choose to pay what you want (from $1 to $whatever)

Great building, very contemporary, but we did it all in a couple of hours. We went to the American History Museum and the Met and they both out-shone the MOMA. That said, the café on floor five over-looking the gardens is a great find if you can get a table. Worth a visit, if you have the time, but do... More

Wether you like Medieval and want to see the mounted knights in the Armory, or Egyptian wood sculpture, the Met has... More

I really like big fine arts museums. This one is definitely a good one. It was my favorite attraction in all of NYC. There is so much to see there, one probably needs a couple of days. Alas, I only had a few hours available so I didn't get to see everything. Still great though.

There is a lot to see and you can't see it all in one day but it is not overly crowded so it is enjoyable to walk through the galleries and see the exhibits. I went to the American Wing and saw George Washington Crossing the Delaware...and the John Singer Sargent painting of Washington. Many beautiful American works of art.... More

This is a great place to view art in various forms by many of the most famous artists and some lesser known ones. The collection and displays stretch over several decades. Take your time and take lots of time - it is worth it

No matter how many times I have been here since 1960 it will never be too many times.It's always a new experience based on the crowds, time of day,exhibits and season.The location makes it extra special,the trip up the outside steps another visual spectacular. Paula@paulamarks.com
