Using our New York City passes we bypassed all the lines of people and got priority entry. They also very kindly provided us with a wheelchair for my elderly mother. Fully accessible and over several floors. When we were there we also got to see the Byork exhibition and saw them setting up a new Yoko Ono exhibition with Yoko... More

We have visited Modern Art museums in Australia, London and Paris and New York disappoints. Too many spaces in assembly (e.g. not a single photographic exhibit). We saw plenty of Picasso's, Gaugins and Miros and a few Monets, Van Goghs and Cezannes but none on the "A" list. Warning - don't go Friday afternoon - it's free from 4 pm... More

The range of masterpieces on display here is really impressive. Standing in front of Starry night by Van Gogh is jaw droppingly good. On a Friday between 4.00 and 8.00 p.m it is free which is brilliant. Because it is free it is very very crowded.

Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series is at MOMO until 9/7/2015. It's a "can't miss" show. Brilliant. In 1941, Jacob Lawrence, then just 23 years old, completed a series of 60 small tempera paintings with text captions about the Great Migration, the multi-decade mass movement of African Americans from the rural South to the urban North that started around 1915. It's really... More

I had a great time there as I went knowing nothing about the place. The paintings were the most famous ones and I had the pleasure to behold them in 'real life'. Examples such as "la nuit étoilée" by Van Gogh or "La Danse" de Matisse. Went on a Wednesday morning, there was therefore not so many people.

I studied Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein, Monet's work when I was in high school so they I terested me more than the many other artists. So that was our main focus and we walked quickly around the other rooms hence it didn't take us that long to do the museum. They have a nice sculpture garden to view as well.

If you like modern art you could spend hours here .. I also found the exhibitions pretty good . There was one about rebuilding cities in Latin America that I found to be... More

Very rich in modern paintings of all recent schools, which offered a comprehensive insight in the evolution of modern painting. My tenager son, who is serious into graffity, was also impressed and kept very intrested for the whole 4 hours which lasted our "express" visit

Most people do not enjoy this place. Modern art is only for the few who believe they can appreciate it. Having said that, this is a very popular museum and is usually crowded. Admission is expensive. NY City has so many great museums, I could think of ten you would enjoy better (most of you). The secondary museums of NY... More

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.
