“Always something on display”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

As always MoMas´has something going on. Remember that this place is huge, start off with parts of the museum and don´t forget that the café and restaurant is really good.

“Be careful with recommended admission”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

It is not clear the fact that you can pay whatever you want to visit the museum. 25$ is recommended, this means that you can pay instead 1$ if you like

“You need a day or five to check all the exhibits!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

We were only there for about four hours and I feel like we saw so little. I recommend some good walking shoes and to spend the $7 on the audio tour. Also they have recommended prices but you can pay whatever you like. Be sure to not cram it into your schedule. You need lots of time to see everything.

“Too Much to See, Too Little Time”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This attraction is one of the few great worthy experiences in NYC that is not expensive. Admission is "Suggested" or "recommended", which means that you DO NOT have to pay the complete entry fee (which is a pricy $20 to $25 even with student or senior discounts). $1 or even .25 cents can get you inside without compromising on your wallet. That said, whatever price you pay, this museum is enormous, so get a map and plan out what you want to see. After 3 hours, you will be exhausted so its a better experience if you see exactly what you want. This is the GO-TO art museum in NYC, it has every type of artwork to please any preference.

“Impressive Collection”
Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

I visit this museum every year i come to New York and I always find something new that fascinates me. It is not possible to take the museum in at one trip. Before you go, you must decide which exhibits are the most interesting to you and make a plan for seeing them. Otherwise it is entirely too easy to become distracted.
