A world class institution with a remarkable collection of art and design work. The audio tour units were quirky and we used the phone app with more success. The museum is very patron-friendly and lets you get up close to the exhibits and take photos.

I think I would have appreciated it more if I have some knowledge in the art world. Fortunately though, I watch enough TV to recognize a handful of the artworks and artists. There are many artworks. The audio device is free, so I recommend it if you have lots of free time, because you'd need time to listen to the... More

The MoMA has some of the most amazing art pieces I've ever seen, a gorgeous gift shop, and free entry on Friday nights -- all in all, a stunning gallery. My boyfriend and I went to see Yoko Ono's exhibition and we loved how stepping into the gallery was like entering an entirely different Universe, one that encouraged every visitor... More

A visit to Manhattan offers the exceptional opportunity see a large fraction of the very best art ever created. Be prepared for crowds, and do not miss sitting in the beautiful outdoor sculpture garden.

MOMA is an incredible cultural institution. It's a must see when in NYC for the whole family. My 10 year-old daughter loved it!

Such an amazing array of different artists, paintings and exhibitions. We loved seeing all the Van Gough's and Monet's. Also a fantastic Andy Warhol exhibition with many of his iconic pictures. Along with many other artists including Man Ray and Edward Hopper, this museum is an absolute must see.

1,) Buy your tickets online. You will save at least 20 minutes of standing in line. The line is longest when they first open. We went around noon and the line wait time was about 20 to 30 minutes. We left around 3 PM and the line was only a little shorter. 2.) Download the MoMA phone ap. It is... More

I would have to say that this was not my cup of tea. I found the art work was un-stimulating to my taste. Out of 6 floors of art, I maybe enjoyed 1% of the entire museum.

Being 18 years old, I'm not a huge art fanatic, but my trip to this museum will definately be one i remember. I spent about 3 hours exploring the art on the last day of my trip. I wasn't expecting much when I walked in, but when I began walking I soon became lost in the wide variety of paintings... 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.
