In every trip I make to NYC, I pay a visit to MOMA and get always astonished by the new things there. One can spend there hours and never get bored but amazed. A must visit in NYC!

Near to Time square it's a nice museum with nice modern art. Not that art "to much modern" and understandably.

This is always a stare for me to get lost in. From the moment you walk in the front food on W 53rd Street, you see something that you'll never find anywhere else and that is so rare. It's huge, so allow yourself enough time after visiting MOMA to browse. I love the paper goods, gift cards and thank you... More

I literally spent over an hour here just browsing (and ended up buying quite a bit too!) If you enjoy contemporary design - this has the greatest collection of items in which 'form meets function'. Everything from books to gadgets to decor and clothing - heaven! Definitely a must-see if you visit MoMA. Exceeded expectations!

Nearly everything in this store is Made in China, disapointed! This means for me that you can buy the same items at a fake store and got exactly the same.

I like this store better than the one just off the museum lobby. The store is small but easy to navigate, with many innovative and unique items, art to wear, stuff for the kitchen. The merchandise is costly so I do not buy much here. Maybe a sale might draw me to buying something. It's a feast for the eyes.... More

Soak up some culture in one of NYC's glorious galleries. MoMA's cool, spacious, wonderfully well organized and there are tons of helpful and friendly staff. Don't miss a snack or lunch in one of their cafes... the helpful friendly staff are in those too!
