Small gallery in a beautiful building. The small permanent collection is well curated. It includes wonderful Klimpt paintings and a great collection of Art Deco fine arts.

We have visited this small museum several times in the past and always have found it to be quite enjoyable and one of the "gems" of the art community. Of course, the star attraction is the Klimt painting, not only for its inherent beauty but...More

Neue Galerie has an amazing permanent collection of early 20th century German and Austrian art. In addition to paintings the collection includes examples of decorative arts from the period. It is small enough that one can appreciate both the permanent collection and any special exhibitions...More

We joined others in going to this gallery to see the Klimt portraits. On their own it was worth the trip, but all other paintings and silverware are simply gorgeous. The cafe is emblematic of being in 1930s Vienna.

It must be tricky being on New York’s museum mile and competing with the giants of the Met and Guggenheim. However the way you definitely don’t do is the way this pretentious little spot does. Ferocious security (you can’t even take small bottle of water...More

Very close to the Met so we strolled over and were delighted to discover that because they were between exhibitions there was no set admission. We went up and spent a lot of time looking at the "Woman in Gold." It is a glorious painting....More

Where do I start on this trip report? (12 Replies)
I'll give you the rough bones of what we did on our trip and observations which may be of use or interest or neither! Central Park- I was expecting this big huge flat space- not like that at all- it's all wee hidden "nooks and crannies"- very peaceful in some parts and very New York in others! Watch out there are main roads which run right thru it so there is traffic going across which you don't expect in a park. We saw roller bladers, baseball players, cyclists, people doing tai chai, 2...More

Neue Galerie - Free First Fridays Question (10 Replies)
We are arriving in NYC on July 3. We will be there until the 11th and plan to see many museums. I specifically want to see the Klimt exhibit at Neue Galerie. How crowded is that specific museum in Free First Fridays normally? We are trying to decide if we should try and take advantage of this offer of plan it for a different day and pay full admission. It is always nice to save money but I don't want to feel as if I am wasting a lot of time standing in line when there is so much to see. I...More
