If you have an interest in contemporary craft and design, this is a place for you. It is a regular stop for me when I visit NYC. Always something new and different and it has a great shop.

We went to this museum, which is on 5 floors. It is small, and we thought we covered the exhibits in less than an hour. Two floors of hand made, stylish, modern/wood furniture, with great videos of how it was made. Fascinating.

Others on this website have a good piece of advice on this museum: Check the website to see what's currently on exhibit to see if there's anything that catches your interest. I did no such thing. I pretty much went to answer the question, "What's...More

MAD is a medium sized museum in Columbus Circle overlooking the south west corner of Central Park. Unlike MoMA a few blocks away, MAD is refreshingly low-key and peaceful. So calm in fact I could only hear the squeaking shoes of a security guard pacing...More

Just visited the MAD Museum for the fourth time this summer. It's a great place to bring relatives from out of town who want to see a museum but don't have hours to spend. The exhibits are fun, and my visitors all enjoyed recognizing the...More
