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

Visit the MoMa...you will not be disappointed. It is an excellent and carefully organised selection of exquisite art from several epochs, easy to visit in a couple of hours as it is not overwhelming as many European museums can be. A real treat for a family with teens that like, but are not necessarily particularly fans of art museums. The... More

If you are a Jacob Lawrence fan, you don't want to miss the exhibition of his paintings at MoMa. The exhibit traces the migration of African Americans from the Jim Crow south to the industrial north. These epic journeys that are captured on canvas are quite moving.

If you are into art, this is a must see. Very unique exhibits. We went on Friday night when it was free to get in for a couple hours. I would love to go back and spend some more time.

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.
