Even if you are not so much into Modern Art, and installations, you must pay a visit to MoMA, as it houses some more traditional art collections as well (dating from 1880 to the present -- their Impressionist collection is wonderful). As with most museums, you need to make sure you dedicate a full day even if you do not... More

A definite visit for every tourist and resident. The special exhibits are worth seeing and the permanent collection is a must. What wonders the Rockefeller family has wrought.

As we had children we only sent half a day here, I could have come back for a few days, loved it. Monet, Picasso and many more, such an interesting place filled with so much culture. Next time we're in town we'll be back.

Free entry on Friday with UNIQLO - Woop woop!! So glad I finally got to go, especially on my own - I really got to absorb the amazing space and art work without any interruptions. The sculpture garden is a must and I had a tasty rasberry sorbet and people watched for ages. Had the best 3hrs.

I’m not an expert of arts but I love visiting nice museum … this was for sure one of the most attractive I visited. You can find very strong samples of modern art, but you can also appreciate well known operas like Monet or Picasso.

The MoMA collection is very vast and it is worth spending an entire day there. However, if you don't have much time (or if you have small children who get tired after two hours of visiting), you can pick up and chose what you want to see, the museum is very well organized. The last time we visited MoMA, we... More

This review has two parts the cultural part first, the building second: The Modern Art collection of the Museum and for the right reasons, it is a very excellent selection of the artistic movements that shaped Modernism. That being said do note that not all areas are covered, or displayed in the same way and there is a very good... More

This was a very nice museum to go to, not only for the works of art and its collection, but for the building, the terrace and the cafe are all so nice to sit a little while you enjoy some coffee and the view. The works of art are very inspiring and the whole expericene is worth it. Not to... More

The auditions where not really my taste but it's interesting building. Despite the high entry prices worth to visit.

We really enjoyed visiting this museum. We were able to see most everything in half a day, whereas I am told the Metropolitan Museum of Art takes a full day if not days. I just loved the impressionist collection and the sculpture garden, and especially enjoyed eating at the "Terrace 5" cafe, overlooking the sculpture garden. Cool place!
