There are Modern Art Museums in the world and then there is MOMA. Have traveled a lot and I still return. Is it the best in the world? If not, its pretty close. Love modern art? Go to MOMA.

I spent a good 3 hours in the museum and still didn't see everything. The featured exhibit was from Matisse and was very interesting. I highly recommend getting the audio tour which is free.

It's simply floor after floor of endless amazing modern art. The cafe is cool too. Site outside if weather permits. Be sure to visit the gift shop too.

Really an interesting museum, though more fun if you get there early and avoid some of the crowds. The design exhibit is particularly interesting and seeing Monet's water lilly paintings was great. Definitely recommended though get timed tickets to see the Matisse exhibit.

Fabulous. Some of the installations are hard to justify as art but it is a subjective matter. Most artists are not appreciated in their life time! The Brown sisters pictures in the entrance are a fantastic start. We were luck enough to see the Matisse exhibition. I had not been very appreciative of his art in the past but was... More

The top floors of MoMA have some outstanding works of art. Start on the top floor to ensure you have the most energy for the best of the collection, then work your way down the floors and see the exhibits on the lower floors if time allows. The quality decreases with the floor numbers, but the museum as a whole... More

We visited the MoMA with the family for the first time. We had a special interest in the Matisse cut-outs exhibition but were equally thrilled by the post-expressionist, cubist, surrealist and modernist pieces. The audio guides (included in the ticket price of $25.-- for an adult ticket) provide loads of information and one can search and browse at leisure. We... More

Tip - get timed tickets - get the first time slot before it gets crazy busy Pros - Matisse cut outs were interesting to see - worth visit - The Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit was also worth a stop. Reminded of many old French movie posters and even obelisk and asterisk cartoons - a unique style Cons - Way too busy. See... More

Recently visited MoMA with my cousin to see the Matisse cut outs exhibit. I was not disappointed. The exhibit was excellent and the museum itself was a treat to enjoy once we toured the exhibit. Wonderful exhibits throughout and easy to walk through. A very pleasant experience!
