Some of the best exhibitions I have seen in a while. Robert Gober, Matisse cut outs, Elaine Sturtevant!! Had a wonderful lunch in the cafe too. Being a member allows you to go early and avoid lines and not have to buy timed ticket to Matisse.

This is a great place to spend a rainy or cold afternoon. I love taking the time to walk through the exhibits and I especially love the MoMa shop. It's rare that I leave empty handed.

We visited on the famous free Friday night as we weren't massively bothered about going but thought it was something to do (and I'm a fan of art and the other half isn't so much!) Obviously it was very busy, the queue stretched all the way down the street. It it moved quickly. The first couple of floors were a... More

So many amazing pieces of art! If you like Money or Van Gogh, they've got it. If you like Pollack and Warhol, they've got it. The most interesting thing for me was watching people react to the art. There really is something for everyone. It is very busy, but not overly so. We started on the fifth floor and made... More

We visited the museum to see the Matisse exhibition of "cut outs", and other special painters work such as Van Gogh. We are no big museum people , but really enjoyed the experience, and would go back to MoMA . It is well laid out , bright, airy,but very busy. There`s no much space to sit and fully appreciate the...

Look, we didn't HATE MoMA - there were some genuinely magnificent pieces which were well worth the price of admission - but navigating this rabbit warren of rooms and disparate exhibitions exhausted us before we'd seen even a third of the space. Long lines to get in (it was a rainy Monday and we should've known better) made the foyer... More

The Monet, Pollock, van Gogh, etc are nice and it was worth the trip to see them but I'm not a modern art fan. For every modern classic, there were a multitude of strange pieces that just don't speak to me at all. Nice enough museum but not my thing.

Visited this place on an excursion to the City. This place is busy, being a main tourist attraction in NYC, so plan to be surrounded by lots of people. This museum is one of the biggest art museums in North America, and a must hit for any art aficionado.

If you love Matisse like I do, make sure to see this exhibit while it is at MOMA. Get your timed ticket in advance.
