So much to see

Having limited time, we made the most of it, but one could easily spend a whole day here. We got a taste and will be back for more soon.

The museum is well organized, the collection is impressive and one of the best. Most of the temporary exhibits are also excellent. Some mass produced objects are also on display, which makes people see art where they wouldn't normally look. Buy the tickets online so you don't have to wait in the long lines at the museum.

Starry Night alone made this museum worth the stop. But the modern art is really interesting and fun. Just have an open mind, wander around and enjoy the creativity. MoMA is pretty cool.

This was the first museum we visited in NYC. We went to the free (4-8PM) option. Imagine seeing Van Gogh's Starry Night and Wyeth's "Christina's World" in the same building. Magnificent! It was worth the effort for those two paintings alone. We also went to their special exhibits on Kai Althoff and Francis Picabia and enjoyed them. This museum is... More

I admit that I struggle a bit with modern art. I loved the Metropolitan but MOMA feels like work and maybe that's the point. The good news is they serve a fabulous lunch. Go for the art but stay for the food.

6 levels of exploration for arts lover. Each level is of a different theme and collection, which one should really take their time to look around. Would be good to get the audio as well so that you can have a better idea of the art pieces you are looking at. A good place to spend the afternoon in a... 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.
