Overall, I liked the Picasso and the Van Gogh pieces but Monet pieces were also nice. The fee is $25 to get in however, if you are frequent visitor it is best to get the membership since you get to bring a guest for only $5.

Although I really think it is time that NY made it's big attractions free (see London), at least visitors can pop in to MoMA for twenty min on a Friday to view a bit of modern for a donation, without feeling obliged to stay for three hours. The juices at the cafe are restorative. :-)

MoMA is well worth a visit. Five floors of the most eclectic mix of modern and classical art beautifully displayed for all to see. A definite must on any visitors itinerary.

The MoMA can always be counted on for having beautifully curated exhibits. The Picasso exhibit was monumental in scope, requiring a second visit to properly take it all in. However, the modern furniture/technology section is a barrage of images and sounds that I find hard to take.

If you like modern art than MOMA is a definate must-see. I loved the works and the way you can navigate through the museum. If you pick up an audio tour than I strongly recommend using the kids tour. It is so much more fun!

I love to wander around MOMA. Jackson Pollack gallery is one of my favorites. I don't always find their special exhibits compelling, however. I just visited the Picasso sculpture exhibit and while some of the pieces were incredible, much of it looked like cereal boxes that he cut up during breakfast and declared as art. Just saying....

MOMA has such a diverse medium of artwork to enjoy. There is something for every taste and style. I always recommend the timed exhibits b/c they are so appealing to the eye. I saw the Picasso Sculptures twice. Each time was very enjoyable.

The Museum of Modern Art houses some of the most notable classic works of the Impression period including Van Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso, Matisse, and many more. The museum always has an architectural exhibit which can be either historic (e.g. sketches from Frank Lloyd Wright), or futuristic drawings of NYC" on stilts" done by local urban planners. It is worth a... More

Went to the museum to see the Picasso sculpture exhibit. Had enough time to have lunch in the restaurant on the fifth floor and go through more exhibits. Exhibits are very well laid out and you can listen to exhibit highlights on your iPhone by downloading their app. The Staff was very helpful. There was a very long wait for... More

MOMA was packed because it was the last few days before the Picasso exhibit closed. However, it was well work the time I had (only 2 hours to spend between meetings).

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.
