I was more impressed with the building than the actual art in the exhibit we saw, but that's ok. I will say the heat works VERY WELL in that old school house. HAHA i went in... read more

One of the best museums in NY. I went there early January and Mark Leckey's work is currently on exhibit. I like how they made different sections of the museum like a maze with secret passages into the creative mind of Mark Leckey. Worth visiting. Check out their website so you can see the current exhibits before visiting.

Amazing space - such a great job of repurposing an old school, the gallery is almost as beautiful as the work it displays. We enjoyed a great show and the bookshop was also worth the visit - both the store within the gallery and the magazine shop too. Can't wait to visit again!

Warm Up used to be a fun thing to do on a saturday afternoon in summer, not always my music but always a good mood. And it's a good way to bring people to a museum. Over the years, price for admission and drinks kept going up. The worst part was that at every corner inside and outside the buidling... 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. I was here last week for a seminar and conference and found the place to be inviting and friendly. Inside MoMA it can be hard to find one's way about the... More

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
