Starry night

Not being the most art savvy person in the world, I found MoMA somewhat confusing at times. Easy to navigate, they offer a free audio guided tour.

The sculpture garden was the highlight for us. While we did enjoy the art, especially the impressionists, we found this Museum underwhelming for the cost

There is much to like in this stylish gallery and equally much to make you scratch your head and ask ... why? The 1880-1950 collection is particularly good, with some nice items from the 1960s. A lot of the avant garden modern stuff is way too weird for me but is fun to wander round and think that you can... More

amazing world art collection like Van Gogh, Picasso, Monet and many others, its like looking at the window of the past, we could just sit there and relax, and its good because they are open 7 days a week, the best part i like is the gift shop, so many ideas to buy for souvenirs.

It is modern art so expect to see a white canvas with a 5 inch red stripe on the horizontal and another picture with seemingly globs of picked up garbage glued to the canvas while another "piece" contains boxes of plastic straws with miscellaneous objects included; but it's only a very minor part I thought of the very excellent MOMA....

The museum is a fun way to spend a couple hours. The 60s exhibit, on now, is a good retro of the period. Of course, the impressionists, and the Van Gogh Starry Night, are as relevant. There is something for everyone in this museum. We only viewed two of the six floors.

This may go without saying, but unless you are a modern art enthusiast, you may not have your attention held. We appreciated the art for what it was, but not really our style.

Just as well it was free as my favourite floor - architecture, design and photography - was shut. Enjoyed the top floor instead. Obviously it was very crowded but we arrived around 5.30 when there was no longer a queue. They let you take photos here, unlike the UK? Also had a snack here in the 5th floor cafe -... More

Fantastic collection of modern art from all of the greats, plus interesting rotating exhibitions and regular live music in their sculpture garden in the summer. Definitely gets crowded on the weekends, so go at an "off" time if you want to enjoy the serenity of the space and art.

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.
