A must visit

Whilst some of the exhibits were a bit funky for me, this is an amazing collection. You need to allocate some proper time to do it justice though.

We arrived about 5 minutes before it opened and the admission line was already really long. We probably had to wait about 30 minutes to get in, which was pretty good considering the amount of people in line. They had multiple cashiers to speed up the process. All together we spent about 3 hours here. We started on the top... More

I had been looking forward to going to this gallery for years and it was so disappointing when I finally visited. I was hoping to see some really modern and current art but the focus really seemed to be on 60s art - not that modern anymore. One whole floor which was all the photography was out due to renovations.... More

Nice museum and even for somebody like me who is not so much in the modern art, I felt the visit was still worthwhile. Nice set up and easy to walk through.

This museum is amazing to see and experience. The organization and displays are very appealing and the gift shop is an experience in itself. There are at least 2 great places to eat in the museum and you do not have to pay admission for dining only. Lucked into 1/2 price admission because I arrived within one hour of closing.... More

Their collection and exhibitions are great. Love their stores as well. This is a must for everyone to visit. Specially, it is very crowded on a rainy days, sometimes the ticket lines are very long. However, it is worth to see the museum.

Pros: it was very nice and had a large variety of art (videos, scupltures, paintings) to suit all tastes. Cons: quite a confusing layout. can get VERY busy. I took a lovely photo of at least 3 dozen people taking photos of the Starry Nights. But overall a great experience.

Whether you pop in, like me, several times per year during lunch break, or you have set aside a few hours during your stay in NYC, this place is a must even if you are not a museum person. They have an excellent film program as well, and in the summer there is live music in the sculpture garden. Great... 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.
