This is a beautiful museum with a great collection of modern art that includes all the famous artists and some more recent displays also. The courtyard garden is a beautiful place to sit with a coffee.

Moma is a world famous museum in New York that displays art from chagalle, munch, picasso, van gogh, warhol etc. The museum is in 4 floors and the rooms are huge for bigger displays to be set up. The entrance tickets are 25 US a piece but for that you get to see the best art in the world up... More

Go in the morning because it gets busier as the day goes on. I suggest going to the 5th floor first. That's where Starry Night and other very famous pieces are located. It gets crowded so if you want to get close and really see those pieces, go there first and then explore the other floors.

If you don't want to be reminded that you understand nothing in contemporary art, skip the first four floors. Just visit the fifth floor and leave. There you'll find the masterpieces of such great artists as Picasso, Dali, Kirchner, Matisse, Gauguin and others that are actually worth seeing. However, if you still want to squeeze out everything for your $25... More

If you are just curious go on the free days. I don't have the sensitivity to understand modern art so I regretted to have paid for it.

While you will get the title of my review only if you are a fan of art and design or if you are at the museum, I gotta say that this place is so amazing! Everything I learned at Deisgn school and modern art history classes is here!!! From Pollock to Warhol, to Dali and Picasso, this is the place... More

We were 4 adults visiting MoMA on a Saturday afternoon. The museum was bustling with people, many of whom were clearly visiting from overseas. The exhibits were a mixed bag - some interesting and some not so. The special exhibit for Toulouse Lautrec was well displayed, well labeled and quite worthwhile. The exhibit with the paintings by Cezanne, Picasso, Warhol,... More

This museum is not nearly the size of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and can be easily walked through in a few hours. It is interesting even if you are not a fan of modern art. All of the galleries are easy to look at and walk through.

This is spread over six floors. Split into various sections, there are works of art from most of the great modern masters. Numerous sculptures and other displays fill galleries throughout the building. Children 16 and under are free, so this is very good value for a family.

My children ages 11 and 13 had a hard time appreciating the modern art. They loved the sculptures and art of the early 1900's and late 1800's. They did enjoy the kids creating station!
