Whenever I'm in NY I love going to the MoMA. There is always something to see there - first of all the permanent exhibition is so big it is hard to cover in one visit. And second, the special exhibitions are usually fascinating as well. The (free) audio guide is useful and easy to use.

I've always wanted to visit MoMA, and am familiar with their legendary collection - but expected to be "wowed" more when visiting in real life. Lots of great art to see, but uninformative in presentation and lay-out, so not much to "learn" from he visual displays. Still worth the visit and the price of admission.

Temporary collections (Yoko Ono). Adults - U$ 25 and kids under 16 FREE. I spend 2 hours to see everything and a group was singing and film. It is the... More

MoMa is a magic place. We decided to go there during a raining day. It has 6 floors. The visitor can enjoy the art without special protection, it seems like the visitor is part of the art. The master piece for me was the starry night of Van Gogh. There are individual free iPod guide that could help for a... More

"Admission is free for all visitors during UNIQLO Free Friday Nights, held every Friday evening from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m." Of course, at 4:00, there is a l-o-n-g line. However, if one arrives at 6:00 or 6:30, they still have 1 to 1-1/2 hours to enjoy the exhibits. I would suggest heading to the fifth floor for the collection which... More

Great museum - well worth revisiting. Contrast its casual supply of gems with those at the Guggenheim (and kids go free to MoMA)

On Friday afternoons, free tickets are distributed which is good, but it is very crowded. There are great paintings by Picasso, Cezanne, and a couple by van Gogh on floor 5. The Yoko Ono exhibit can be avoide. I did not think this should be claased as art. There also exhibits of old phonographs, microphones and electriconics. The sculpture garden... More

I was so excited to see that almost all of my favorite paintings (The Starry Night,etc.) reside in this museum. Loved that they also had "edgy" newer art exhibitions as well. Great way to spend a cold, snowy day.

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.
