Such a gem!

It was smaller than The Met but "The Starry Night" painting (Van Gogh) and the 3-panel full wall length "Water Lilies" (Monet) were already well worth the entrance fee. The... read more

It was smaller than The Met but "The Starry Night" painting (Van Gogh) and the 3-panel full wall length "Water Lilies" (Monet) were already well worth the entrance fee. The "mapping journey" project was very thought provoking. Bruce Conner and Edgar Degas exhibitions were both worth visiting too. The theatres at MoMA also show archive films. On the day of... More

I had not been a member for a while and I just started a new membership. Looking forward to my first visit for a long time, I went to the museum hoping to have a nice visit like I did years ago when I was a member. Unfortunately that was not the case. Since management refuse to print a floor... More

In the past 3 months, I have visited the museum twice with 2 different sets of people. If I would have wrote my review based on the first time I was at the museum, I would have told you it was not worth the time or money. I was with 2 people who were not as into art as I... More

Children are free! I think this museum is very beautiful and is not expensive, specially if children are free. We had a great time and we loved Van Gogh's starry night painting!

No trip to New York is complete without an afternoon spent at MOMA. If you only have an hour then head straight for the 5th floor where most of the famous paintings and painters are located. The most famous of the works is Van Gogh's Starry Night and you'll also see Picasso, Warhol, Pollock, and many other recognizable names and... More

It has such a wide range of modern art from all of the greats, it is a must visit when you are in NYC. It gets crowded so go early. They have an excellent website too that will tell you exactly what's happening in the museum. It's worth perusing before you visit. While there are some simple places to eat... More

With the Mercury touching 40 degrees today this was a good choice of cool place to spend a very enjoyable couple of hours. There are some amazing pieces and some that I wasn't so fond of but all challenged me in some way.

We have a membership at the museum so we can stop in early and enjoy an exhibit or two before the crowds arrive. Take advantage of the audio tours. Definitely try to catch gallery tours they make the exhibit even more meaningful. Love the cafes for a fast meal especially on a rainy day in the museum. Fabulous gift shop... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
