My trip was sort of difficult; I appreciate modern art but my bf doesnt. I love the place; there were plenty of pieces to look at, all sorts of media. I love big structures as well, and they do have big eye-catching ones. The place can get crowded though. I would have preferred a quieter time. If you're the same... More

We nearly paid full price but someone let us know about free tickets on a Friday evening so we saved quite a bit between two of us. A good range of pieces, some quite famous and others less well known. I enjoyed an exhibit an architecture and design a lot. It got quite crowded after a bit but I guess... More

I'm not a modern art lover myself, I went there by curiosity and because of all the nice reviews, it was the right decision! The first floor is quite overwhelming but as soon as you go up the quality of the art pieces evolves as for the spaces: which get more vast.

I've always only reviewed restaurants on trip advisor until now. But MOMA is just so incredible that I wanted to write a few words, as banal as that might seem. Its a truly incredible experience. There's nothing particularly ground-breaking in the way the art is displayed, but such is the strength of the collection, particularly on the 5th floor, that... More

I've been to New York more times than I can count and have always missed attending the MOMA. With my first visit to this foundation of NYC, I was blown away. The wealth of art housed at this establishment can be viewed in as little as 3 hours, but with a particular eye, can be enjoyed on multiple visits on... More

Amazing find. Went on Wikipedia and typed in best modern art museums in the world and came across moma. Found out about free Fridays and I've been a regular ever since. It was an amazing experience. Seeing van gogh's starry night up close was life changing. All the Picasso's line up together was remarkable. The building itself is stunning. It... More

the amount of art you can find here is incredible, it looks to be inside a book, don't miss it, if you like art this is the good place and if you never wanted to study it then you will start to think that you have really missed something.

An amazing collection well worth the visit. We visited on the Friday afternoon when it was free entry so we were prepared for the crowds. The design of the building itself is beautiful and worth taking your time through. Take your time and soak up the atmosphere! Loved discovering the Toulouse Lautrec exhibit!!

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.
