MOMA always has exhibits to appeal to visitors. This time was no exception. The exhibits as well as collections were superb. Current shows were well done. A very nice art stroll. Eat at the Cafe!!

The MoMA was absolutely amazing. So many great pieces of art and we could stroll at our own leisure without feeling rushed or crowded. I do have an irrational fear of heights so the top floor with the glass railings was a bit anxiety causing for me, but well worth it.

This was our last afternoon and as it was near our hotel, we decided to visit it. It was not as overwhelmingly large such as the Met and Natural History museums and you could easily see it all in an afternoon. whereas we appreciate seeing the Monets, Salvador Dali, early Picasso's etc. the most modern works which showed things like...

This place was the highlight of my first timer trip to New York - I am still dreaming about the fabulous pieces of art on display... I would say that you dont even really need to be an art lover to appreciate MoMa... It has enough pop culture references peppered through it that you are sure to find something which... More

I loved seeing these greats but the rest I can leave behind. The building is amazing. If you want a nice place to rest your feet, go sit in the garden. Very relaxing!

A lot of the place was closed for new installation, not that good. Also, some of the famous works wasn't on display. I would recommend people to go to Whitney instead,

This place nicely presents an introduction and the main pieces of art since the late 1800s. Typical american-sized museum, meaning you can cover most of it in a day, unlike its european sisters. Free entry on Fridays is great.

Home of many iconic pieces of art but also has some significant spaces where you wonder why this was here (army jeep, helicopter)

Wonderful exhibits; many artists; fabulous masterpieces... It was a beautiful day so we took advantage of the sculpture garden which had a variety of works. We had a rigorous schedule so we had to go through quickly but we were able to do it with ease because of the wide hallway and wide exhibit rooms
