Probably the best educational institute/museum in Long Island City

Though off the beaten path and hard to find MoMa PS1 is now a really well known and recognized part of the fabric of NYC's education and cultural institutions. I was here last... read more

The exhibits currently on display (November 2016) did not hold much interest for me or anyone in my party of 5. The James Turrell open sky room is pretty cool, but you can look at the sky from anywhere. Maybe by the time you read this review they'll have some new and better exhibits, but for now, I'd find something... More

From Warhol to Van Gogh to the amazing grounds and architecture this place ROCKS! We were even treated to a concert and dance by some local groups!

Thought it lacked a bit of interesting art but nice space being under used and needs work throughout

Great museum, definitely 'out there' but in a very enjoyable way. Many of the exhibits felt like impressive standalone 'experiences', highly recommended to anyone who wants a different art experience, especially modern art sceptics! Go to the regular MoMA first to get free entry to PS1 (doesn't have to be the same day).

Though off the beaten path and hard to find MoMa PS1 is now a really well known and recognized part of the fabric of NYC's education and cultural institutions.

Spent a Monday afternoon in this unique museum. We had a few hours between flights and airports so we took a cab over to PS1. We are members of the MOMA and have visited in Manhattan several times and had been wanting to visit so this worked out well. There was some construction going on which made for a bit... More

Getting here proved to be a little tricky, due to some subway rerouting over the weekend, but it ended up being well worth it, even if we had to walk more than we wanted to get there. I would say if you had to choose between MOMA in Manhattan, and MOMA PS1, you should choose this one. This gives you... More

MOMA PS1 is an outstanding space. Totally unassuming from the street, the old school presents greatly rewarding curatorial challenges, with its odd stairwells and clinical spaces. The book shop is to die for.

If you visit MoMA, you get a free pass to visit the MoMA PS1 derivative in Long Island City. That's where I was staying, so I went to PS1 after my visit to the rather more grandiose main MoMA. PS1 is housed in an old (school?) building. The court yard had an interesting display of coloured cables that created a... More
