Top ways to experience The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.
How to get there
  • 5th Ave / 53rd St • 4 min walk

My visit focused on the modern period from 1890-1970

Moma has to be done on various visits as it's impossible to see everything in one visit. For modern art there is a wide variety of the classic artists to the some obscure artists that was fun to discover.

This place is BIG
A great way to spend a day leisurely walking and enjoying artwork. This was a fun experience! A lot to take in this place was big! Plan to spend at least half a day here.

Famous works from the 1800 onwards that can be seen in a day
Sep 2021
We booked a timed reservation for a weekday in advance, although there was barely a queue to buy tickets, so that would have sufficed.

Features approximately 4 floors of modern art from the 1800s to today--a number of works of Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso, Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse are shown on the highest floor and in my opinion were worth viewing. It is difficult to view all the art in one day (and give it justice), but certainly one could speed through it in a few hours. We spent 3 hours on the fifth floor alone and it felt a bit rushed towards the end, although one will have favourite sections that they will spend more time on. The subsequent floors feature art from the early to mid 20th century, then post 1970s. The theming and the progression of the gallery felt logical. There are a few specific exhibits (automations and select artists). Overall, as a casual viewer, I felt that a day was sufficient.

There are large areas cordoned off in the 2nd and 3rd floors for future exhibits. The audio guide is helpful and allows you to focus yourself on select works of art. The gallery is generally fairly crowded (especially so around certain works such as Starry Night, which seems to be the most popular place to take photos), though quieter earlier on during the day.

The museum is spacious, with an upstairs cafe that seemed fairly standard and pricey, and some general outdoor seating on the ground floor with a cafe for the inevitable break you will need.

Overall, worth the visit.

Astounding collection of modern art
Sep 2021
Incomparable works of art! Along with the Louvre in Paris, and the Prado in Madrid, you must visit MOMA if you are able. Astounding to see up close the works of Van Gogh, Monet, Cezanne, Andrew Wyeth, etc.

But like all museums, there is far too much to see in one day. Do yourself a favor, while doing justice to the incredible collection of art, by spacing your visit over 2 days, minimum. Like a great meal, you need time to digest everything, and MOMA can't be truly appreciated in just one day.

Always great
Fantastic collection. I only visit new york every few years, and this always ends up on my list. Obviously the art quality is subjective, but the curating is excellent. Not only is it easy to locate things and navigate the building, but the flow seems very natural as you move through the collection. Gift shop is only ok, if you look for rarer or higher quality items, but if you want a magnet or book, you're golden. Need a reserved time for entry and if you pick opening time, there will be a significant line that moves pretty quick.

MOMA is the Best of the Rest Museums
The MOMA is the perfect compliment to the other famous Museum of New York. We went to especially see the Automania Exhibit, a MOMA about the artistry and significance of cars in today's (and earlier) world. The Airstream Trailer, VW Bug, Jaguar XKE, and others remind us that art is everywhere even in everyday (hence, modern art). Wonderful and during the Pandemic there is no problem getting timed-entry tickets. Television art, computer art, 1960's, 70's, 80's, 90's they have exhibits for all. Not even room to collect everything but using the exhibits of Calder and Picaso they show how Modern Art evolves and their progress (similar to how Montmartre uses their Van Gough exhibit and the D'Orsay uses their Monet & Monat exhibits). Wonderful airy multifloor atrium with floor to ceiling multimedia exhibits. Easy to enter, inexpensive (or free), well-lit, and wonderful layout of well designed exhibits. Go see it.

Take the time to visit
Aug 2021 • Solo
There is plenty to see here, including works by Dali, Monet, and the infamous Starry Night painting. You are allowed to bring backpacks and strollers, you just have to wear your backpack in the front.

An art lovers paradise!
Sep 2021
We used to live on Long Island and have been wanting to get back to MoMA for years. It has expanded greatly and you could spend a full week there to see everything. In one day we only managed to see most of the exhibits in the North Tower and the car exhibit. We had an excellent lunch in the cafe but be careful in the hot weather if you decide to sit outside. The cafe terrace can get very hot in the afternoon sun. If you have the time or live within easy travel distance of MoMA consider getting a membership. You will want to visit again and again.
