With less than 36 hours in New York, and only 5 spare hours outside of meetings I had to make some difficult choices about what to do and where to go. I picked the Museum of Natural History and the MMA, with a walk across Central Park to get from one to the other. I have to say, my visit... More

We have been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art several times, but we had never had a guided tour. We booked a two hour tour through Walks of New York. Our guide was very knowledgable and we really enjoyed seeing some of the highlights of this fabulous museum. We really enjoyed going out on the roof garden. Wonderful views of... More

This would be the umpteenth time I have ended up in MoMA. Ideas, aesthetics, creative expression, layout, design, photography.... looking for some inspiration for me, the common man? Then this is one of the interesting places in the US that is always a terrific visit.

Although this will be short, it is only because there are so many reviews already. I recommend getting to the museum as soon as they open to allow more time without the crowds. There is so much to see it is impossible to see everything. Take a leisurely walk and you will find many items that spark your interest. If... More

if you see no other museum in new york city, go to this one......it is conveniently located on upper 5th avenue at a great price (free) and it contains many famous, classical paintings and sculptures from different periods from all over the world......probably the best and most comprehensive collection in the country

A must see exhibit entitled "The Woman and Her Offspring" explains it all. This was a 5 hour narrated tour given by Oasis Tour Group that I would recommend to those who love Ancient World History and bible chronology. All exhibits and artifacts are authentic and well documented. Lots of walking, The Museum is very large. It has a nice... More
