The art is fabulous, but had to fight to see the art with loads of European spring break tourists. Long lines to get in, waited about 45 minutes for a ticket. The free audio guide is helpful, especially to find specific works of art.

Me and my mother decided to visit only the Gaugin exhibition but passed by the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibition as well. The latter was as disappointing as the first was fantasric! Great architecture and helpful staff. Very crowded.

I myself did not truly enjoy the visit here, as I am NOT an art lover. I took my children here, as they all have different interests. There are many famous works displayed here. To see Starry Night was a life long dream of one of my children which you just can't put a price on, except for the price... More

Well laid out gallery with many famous artists' work on display. Particularly liked the Picasso and Van Gogh paintings. Very relaxed atmosphere and large airy galleries.

Great variety of modern art, some of which you will like and some of which you might not, but you can't question the comprehensiveness of the collection. Better to go early in the day when it is likely to be (slightly) quieter, giving you a better chance to get a relaxed look at the exhibits.

MoMA has a wonderful collection of modern art that is definitely worth seeing in addition to whatever new exhibits are happening. The sculpture garden is a wonderful respite from the city and the restaurants in the museum are very nice especially Terrace 5 which has an outdoor terrace overlooking the sculpture garden. If you want a splurge, book a table... More

We started at the top of the building and worked our way down. Some you like; some you don't; some you don't understand. But a very enjoyable 2 hours taking in some of the worlds best work. Very much worth a visit.
