“So much to see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

This museum is incredible. It is huge! The is so much to see in there, and definitely something to suit every taste.

I am usually a hater of people taking their children to museums, I feel sorry for them having suffered the same torture as a child, to me they are boring for them. But this place had so many different things to see that would interest young minds that I would recommend it.

You could easily spend a whole day here, or just dip in for an hour or two to see a specific exhibition. Absolutely worth every penny of the entrance fee.

“MOMA is wonderful and worth the visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

I love the beautiful Monet "Water Lilies" and I could sit and look at them all day... my second time to the MOMA, and I loved it as much as the first time.

“Islamic art work was beautiful; the Oceanic Art exhibit is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

The paintings, rugs, and jewelry in the Islamic section were beautiful and showed the painstaking work of the artists. The Oceanic Exhibit was wonderful to happen upon. The ancestor poles and Kwoma ceiling are sights to behold.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

If you're in New York and you haven't been, please go to the MET. In fact, even if you've been, you should go again. World class museum with wonderful historical artifacts.
