What a wonderful place- so interesting to see actual pyramids and be able to touch them and so many other artifacts. So many masters are there - don't miss the fashion exhibit in the lower level- great array of Monet, Manet, Sargent, Renoir- wow- overload on beauty !

MoMA (pay what you will Fri 4-8 PM) or make a day of it. Excellent art and exhibits! I would say a MUST SEE! In addition to the galleries, look for the listings of the films they are showing (some first run and Oscar contenders others classics) that are included in your ticket price. Also take advantage of the mobile... More

We spent an afternoon here, level 5 was the best, it has many classic works of modern art. Make sure that you get an audio guide, you can just simply type in the number of the work and hear a brief summary of it. The current Picabia exhibit is well worth a visit and is included in the admission. The... More

A top notch museum with a top notch collection that has become a zoo. I no longer go because I can't bear it. But if you love art and you are only in NYC once...... go prepared. Or visit MOMA PS1 in Queens - much hipper and more fun.

This museum has some priceless works and it is worth the price of admission for the 5th and 6th floors alone. I found many of the exhibits to be quite boring (photography), but this is only a matter of personal taste. It was mildly crowded on a Sunday midday, but people really started to pour in as we were leaving... More

I am not a modern art fan and though impressed by the scope of the art work, I found it tedious and was ready to leave in an hour. My husband does like modern art and happily stared at the largest Jackson Pollack painting for a long time. there are several floors of different types of modern art for those... More

As a first time visitor, it was recommended by one of the guides for us to head to the 5th floor because that is where the best of the art collection is housed. Wow! It was unbelievable to see all of the amazing art from artists such as Warhol, Johns, Cezanne, Matisse, Van Gogh, Dali, Money, etc. The 4th floor... More

Expansive presentation of 2-D and 3-D art from the teens and twenties is outstanding. Not to be missed!

Understand Those into Art think this is great but if paintings aren't your thing don't bother. A family of four with teenagers found this pretty uninteresting. Yes there is Picasso etc. but he isn't God so to us it was just floors of paintings. Appreciate it's difficult to do but try a history museum. And save your money.

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.
