We knew that the Free Friday on December 26th would be crazy but the 3 1/2 block long line to get in was just the beginning!! The crowd was so large there was no control and occupancy regulations must have been set aside. The entrance was free and we did get to see Starry Night!

We went to see the Matisse cutout exhibit. It was wonderful I really liked the fact that they gave you audio tours at no extra charge. The building is well laid out, and we were able to enjoy other exhibits as well. Some of them were a little surprising, since when I think of modern art, I rarely think of... More

It is always amazing to me when I am walking around in a museum and I come across a Van Gogh or Modrian! Lots of great art work to see and well laid out. It was very busy so being a member is always a plus.

Matisse the Cut-Outs is not to be missed. We needed 2 days, so decided to buy a Dual Membership, and it was well worth it, to avoid timed tickets and lines as well as option to go back whenever we want. Use of the Museum's mini I-pads with headphones for viewing of artwork is very worthwhile.

The Matisse exhibition is at MoMA for awhile. Check to see if it's there. Try to stop in early when the museum opens to beat the crowds and have a little more room to enjoy his work. You can get an annual membership and it will get you into the museum an hour before the museum opens to the general... More

On a recent trip to NYC, I made a point of visiting the MOMA. I'd never been, as I'm usually in the city for work or to see friends. On this particular occasion, I had a free afternoon and decided to see something new. The MOMA is a fun and lively museum. As is the case with modern art, there... More

Great experience, there are a lot of masterpeaces and it's perfectly, a little expensive but still worth it.

Friday nights are free, so it was a good opportunity to see the great art at MOMA, including some nice pieces by the Impressionists.

This is what is great about NYC any time of year. It was cold and one of the best places to go to is a museum. We went in and there were 200 people in line. It went quickly and once you got in it wasn't so bad. Lots of exhibits and wanting to see Henri Matisse. Very large number... More
