As keen museum visitor it was a delight to find a new friend. Perfect stay for a look at the latest american modern design. Even the location is modern (ofcourse nothing against the marvellous renaissance buildings of other museums) with several levels - rather quick visit. But - the top level gives a pleasant surprise: a fraice restaurant with a... More

Loved the 3D printing exhibition, but a tad pricey. Help with wet umbrella a plus. Costume jewelry display surprisingly beautiful also.

Every so often it is good to be reminded that our lives are not completely mass produced. The Museum of Arts and Design in NY has some very fascinating displays and some which are more mundane, but all of it makes the viewer appreciate what goes into design and how design has progressed and continues to progress. I'd recommend this... More

A place I come back to again and again. There's always something fascinating and enjoyable to see there. The current exhibition on several floors of "Out of Hand" is excellent. Digital means of producing works of art have developed over the past years - 3D printing, numerically controlled machining, etc - and are now mature. An exhibition of a wide... More

When in NY we love to so the special exhibitions in this lovely. When in the mad, we like to start from the top floor and climb down the stairs to the other floors.

I've walked past this museum many times when I've come through NYC and finally had time to visit. Definitely glad I did. Only issue really was the museum's credit card machine wasn't working so I had to go to an ATM and get cash. The museum is nicely set up and has some great exhibits - a lot about 3D... More

This was the first time I visited. While the MOMA has a design section with design classics/masterpieces the MAD is wholly focused on Design, has modern exhibits. For example the 3D printer exhibits (January 2014) was excellent.

We had only a short time to spend at this museum and wish we had more. The 3D printing was very interesting and a must see - really fascinating. We took about 20 minutes to check out the artist in residence and it was delightful to talk to the artist about her inspiration, the process, the materials and so on.... More

This museum had when I visited it a very nice exhibition on 3D printing and art applications. They show the various types of materials which can be used for 3D printing and their applications. Moreover, there are really nice realisations of 3D printing. I really recommend this museum to people with interest in science and art.
