An old public school converted into a showcase for Modern art. I understand is not the amazing Manhattan MoMa, but if we are prepared and understanding go contemporary act, it's a good experience. The hammocks in the front are very nice, I don't know if they are a temporary installation. Exploring will be good if you have an open mind. ,

Located on Long Island it is outside of what you might consider to be NYC (Manhattan) and is nothing like the glamorous and sexy MOMA of 53rd Street. This is an old abandoned public school and appears very rough around the edges - perhaps MOMA has plans for a huge makeover sometime in the future - it certainly needs it! Unfortunately (for me) the exhibition displayed across all 3 floors of the building was focused on the Gulf War and was not the kind of art I enjoy - so it’s probably wise to check what’s on before making the effort to get here. I wanted to see the building as I had not seen MOMA PS1 before. Shame it’s not like MOMA in Manhattan or the new Whitney museum - this definitely the poor relation

I read the other reviews before going and I can only concur with those in that the MoMa PS1 is an excellent venue. Last weekend they had an exhibition about the Gulf Wars which was very interesting, you should check what is on before you go as if I would not have enjoyed this exhibition with young children. The museum has many rooms and nooks to exhibit in which makes it all the more interesting to explore...I will be back!

We stopped by when a Gulf Wars exhibition was on and we found it outstanding! Being contemporary art, there was certainly an anti-establishment slant. The while huge museum (used to be a high school) was dedicated to different expressions in all media. Quite an experience! To be recommended!

This is one of the only museums in NYC where the artists own the art and all exhibits are contemporary. The exhibits change periodically, so you should research before coming here what will be on display. Some have very strong content and not advisable for children or those who may find the topic to be a trigger. That being said, I visit this museum frequently and I usually find memorable pieces that are now influencing my way of expression.
