A superb collection of Modern Art., covering the gamut of styles from Impressionism , Abstract Expressionism , through Deconstructed Art to present day. One of the highlights I felt was the enormous "Waterlilies" by Monet. Again , allow yourself plenty of time to look , enjoy and absorb this important and eclectic collection of modern art.

This museum is perfect for the modern art lover! I went here after a long day of sight seeing in NYC and it was the best way to end my day. There were spots to rest and look at the art. Some pieces were more out there then others but all were nice. The food was also nice and ready... More

My sister and I got to see the Jacob Lawrence exhibit at MOMA, for free! What a treat! We'll definitely go there again on our next visit to New York!

Starry Night. Demoiselles d'Avignon. Campbell Soup Cans. If this were all, it might be worth a visit, but the hits just keep on coming.

A great collection and a fine museum but gets very crowded at times. The garden with the sculptures is one of my favorite places.

I had no idea. I thought MoMA was all abstractionist and pop art. Oh my NO! We only had 45 minutes before closing and after 15 minutes looking through the Andy Warhol art, we heading up to the 5th floor. YES! All the great impressionist and 'modern' masters were well represented (to include Van Gogh's Starry Night, which I thought... More

A little dissappointed but should have realised beforehand. I like Matisse but just to see his cutouts was a mistake, he is much greater an artist and although this was ground breaking at the time he did not truly reflect his achievements in his lifetime. A better exhibition in the past was Picasso and Matisse.

This is one of the best modern art galleries, always something new to find and see, you could easily spend a whole day so go early to avoid the queues. Obviously a strong collection of American artists inc Warhol, Rothko, amongst others and includes a substantial collection of European and British artists. Split on several floors its an expansive, bright... More

Museum of Modern Art has an awesome collection. Go for a special exhibition but don't miss the permanent collection. It is rich and diverse. Their impressionist collection contains all the greats, Van Gogh (including Starry Night), Picasso, Monet, Seurat, Gauguin. Relax in the sculpture garden. This is truly a world class museum that must not be missed.

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.
