Six giant floors filled with modern art! What more could a sane person want? I foolishly thought I could absorb all of the art in the building when I first walked in, and then I looked up, and up, and up some more, and acknowledged my folly. The MoMA is bursting with so many interesting pieces, some focused on American... More

The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because I wasn't able to get a free audio guide. They only accept photo ID - but no passports. I only had credit cards and passport with me - no room for negotiation. The very kind chap on the desk was then able to help me download the app onto... More

We love art and galleries, and have seen some of the best. We were really looking forward to MoMA, but sadly, many of the exhibits we were planning to see were no longer there. There was some interesting stuff about urban planning around the world, and some fascinating art created off 3-D printing, but other than that, there was not... More

New York is a mass of galleries and museums it can be hard to decide which to choose. I definitely think the MoMa is one of the most worthwhile. The staff are friendly and helpful. And the space is amazing and perfectly suited to its content. The range of artwork is amazing, some not my thing but there is a... More

The MOMA is the best art museum in the Northeast. It is home to the Starry Night by Van Gogh, D'Madmousielles d'Avignon by Picasso, Lavender Mist by Jackson Pollack, and many more. There are five floors of different art movements. I thought it was very well organized. My suggestion is to start at the top floor and go down, especially... More

This was a quick visit today to see the Jacob Lawrence exhibit and the entire Migration series - so amazing, so well done. And the accompanying exhibits were fabulous - so glad I took the extra hour today. Will come back in September and spend the day!

It does have some really famous art on the walls but compared to so many other museums and galleries I have been to, i was really disappointed. It's pricy for what you'll see but if you have a trip to Europe planned this year, pass on the MOMA because it's $25 USD per person and you'll see a few picassos... More

From the hours of 4-8 pm and sponsored by Uniglo. There are five floors of exhibits to view from Picasso to thought provoking exhibits, and sculptures. Gets really crowded around the 4-5 pm hour. Try to navigate your way to the top floor and work your way down to get away from the crowds.

The MOMA is "free" with a voluntary donation every Friday from about 6 to closing. Original works by Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Monet, Dali and Deschamps can be viewed.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
