“Modern installations”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

I am not one for modern installations but there were a lot using light and sound technology. I enjoyed the building. It is worth going to see no matter what is being shown. The bus stops right in front. There is a large sitting area to just relax and read the books set out for your pleasure. The staff is friendly not stuffy and enjoy helping you. The bathroom is a one seater. The building is handicapped friendly. The gift shop is a closet. I recommend it for home schooling, a cooling station, a quiet spot to relax reflect study, or to make a new friend, take a date. Oh yeah the art is great if you get it.

“Good part of a trip to the Bronx”
Reviewed March 27, 2012

Here is a well-maintained and interesting sideline to a day-trip to the Bronx. We went to see the Juan Downey exhibit which gave a compelling and insightful display of his work and methodology. I would hope that other exhibits have the same eye and sensitivity.

The tickets are $5 per person (not sure about seniors), and I would say this is good for about two hours of entertainment (not a full-day experience). The building is large, modern, new and clean.

There is a parking garage on the street just south of the museum, and I definitely recommend if you drive there that you park in the garage, not on the street.
