It's true that NYC is full of wonderful museums and galleries and I love them all, but I can get the same things in most major cities and even in some smaller cities.

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum
#28 of 313 Museums in New York City
I was very pleased with my experience and recommend this to anyone who has an interest in museums, creative designs, or simply new fun experiences!
Popular NYC museums like Met, Moma, Guggenheim can be very crowded and busy- if you want to avoid the crowd and chill for 2-3hours, this would be a good place to visit.

The Jewish Museum
#31 of 313 Museums in New York City
They constantly have a new take -- with a Jewish twist of course -- on subjects that other museums miss.
it is one of the smaller museums in Manhattan but this time temporary exhibition of Chagall paintings was well worth the trip, too bad the restaurant is closed on Saturdays

The Met Breuer
#32 of 313 Museums in New York City
Yes, we all love the Met, MoMA, and the great museums of the world, but I would submit that it's often the smaller museum that offers a more powerful take-away.
Suggested ticket donation includes both Museums and it is well worth checking out the changing presentations.

Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
#41 of 313 Museums in New York City
... Robert and Sonya Delaunay, Picasso, and Georges Braque, among others, but the quality of the works, at least those of Picasso, Kandinsky or Chagall is far exceeding of those displayed at many great world museums.
... Last Summer, one of the hottest lately, it was all about NY; its fantastic, but increasingly expensive fine Restaurants, its designers shopping areas, its touristy attractions and, of course ITS GREAT MUSEUMS.

Very Detailed tour of a very unknown little historic museum
Asia Society and Museum
#56 of 313 Museums in New York City
First and foremost, even though the collection may be smaller than the huge well-known museums in the city, this holds a collection that has a great range of art from the vast and differing cultural milieu of Asia.
It's really an amazing exhibit that would be worthy of any great museum in the world.
Society of Illustrators
#57 of 313 Museums in New York City
I loved the works on display and wish I had more opportunities to see great illustrations up close in other museums.
I love painting and drawing at more-traditional art museums.
