Recommended due to the collection, but was somewhat disappointing. Most of the art was contemporary and didn't seem all that interesting. Those into contemporary art might get more out of their visit, but for us, it didn't have anything to hold our interest.

Conveniently placed close to the High Line, this relatively new Museum has an excellent and unique selection of American art. I particularly enjoyed the huge collection of Edward Hopper paintings, as well as the works by Marc Rothko. Bright airy rooms, and a pleasant cafe,...More

We visited the Whitney especially to see the section on protest art. The exhibits were well displayed and provoked much thought, some of it unsettling. A great display

First I whole heartedly disagree with the view point of all of the art work being political. We loved this gem of a museum. It sits at the end or beginning of the high line. The art work was fantastic as were the views from...More

We had a delightful visit to the Whitney. We liked the advice we were given - start at the top and work down. It’s easier, and the works get edgier on the lower floors. There’s a nice outdoor view on the top floor. The Whitney’s...More

Not worth the entrance fee. There is not much art on display and much is political protest rather than art. If you like modern art, go to the Guggenheim or MoMA instead.

Every time I visit NYC I visit my favorite modern museum. ITs fantastic and worth every effort to have moved it to the Gansevort area - love it love it love it

Great space, great views of the river and the city but very disappointing collection and very little art on view. One floor was also closed to the public.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighborhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

We went on a Saturday and there weren't any significant lines then. I would imagine that it would be even better on a weekday.
