Wow what an unexpected delight this was. I am by no means into art and when my wife said we had to go I wasnt too fussed to be honest. But I am thrilled we went and wished we had more time there! We got access through the New York Pass and went during the week. Crowds were pretty low... More

This is the largest art museum in the Western Hemisphere. It has every kind of art that you can imagine! We went there twice and could only see a small fraction of the contents. Great collection of Greek and Roman art, Italian Renaissance art, Modern art, and Egyptian art. Also a beautiful, small collection of Faberge. I wish that I... More

This museum has a little bit of everything for everyone in the family. We really enjoyed the Contemporary and Modern Art section and was surprised by how many Picasso painting they had on display. We spent a few hours wondering around but someone who likes to see every detail could spend all day here. Nice stop on our trip to... More

We dived in for a look at the Impressionists mainly. This is an astoundingly good collection of many of the Impressionist's best pieces of work. It's well laid out, plenty of viewing space, friendly and well lit. Pay what you want when you go in, don'f fall for the 'recommeded amount'. This is a public collection, paid for by the... More

The problem with MOMA is that it is a tourist spot by it self. People just go there to see MOMA and tell others that they have been there. Most don´t go there for the art. Of course the art is +++++ but you can´t hardly take it in becouse of the crowds. The hanging is quite boring. You feel... More

We visited this museum for two main reaseons: it was pouring with rain and we were near and someone we knew wanted us to track down a painting by the American artist Windslow Homer because he painted his grandmother. We very much enjoyed Homer's seascapes, though didn't find the particular painting. Some of the other American artists were also very... More

Lots of cool ancient things to look at, but not a kid friendly-hands on place. Would have liked a lot more ways for kids to get to know the exhibits.

I spent about 3 hours here with my teenage daughter . There is so much to see that we felt like we were rushing! Loved the sculptures, African art, Egyptian art, and contemporary European areas. There are info stations throughout to ask where specific artists works are. Lots of food carts outside to get a quick bite to eat.

Impossible to make a quick visit, there is so much to see, but even if you are short of time it is still well worth it.
