This was my first visit ever. I would highly recommend this less well-known museum to any visitor to New York who has any interest in Asian art. The works are beautifully presented with excellent explanations that add to the pleasure and the cultural understanding. The...More
The Rubin Museum contains an extensive (6 floors!) and excellent collection of Buddhist art plus the historical context of different regimes where it was produced. I found the history of how different dynasties in that part of Asia used both the religion and the artwork...More
My husband and I just visited this museum last year for the first time. Boy, we did not know what we were missing. A small but formidable museum, with an incredible spiral stair. We recently saw a great exhibit on The Prayer Wheel through the...More
A good sampling of Buddhist art and artifacts, with some good explanations about symbolism, practice and politics. Murals from Tibet. Loved the Tibetan shrine exhibit where you can sit “inside” a shrine and see what the inside would be like, and listen to the sounds...More

Interesting museum with unique offerings. If you are interested in this type of art, you'll certainly enjoy it and get so see a very wide collection here. Even if only marginally interested, you can likely still spend about an hour here.
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.

There is a 24-hour parking lot on the corner of 17th Street and 6th Avenue. There are also a number of parking garages and lots on 17th Street between Union Square and 7th Avenue. (From the Rubin web site). I also think public transport options are preferred, but if you have to have a car... Be aware it will be expensive.
