"Neat Place!"
May 2016
At first, the lower exhibits were odd to me.... I couldn't believe some of the pieces that were considered as art. As we continued through the floors, this is actually a really cool place. If your looking to expand your idea of art, this place is perfect and ideal for rainy days!

"quicker to get in"

The Moma is always great, but too many people during the year-end holidays... at least our queue to get the prepaid tickets was shorter than the normal one!

"A Must See in NYC"

MoMA has been reopened and is just breathtaking. There are so many highlights. Firstly the new building is a joy to wander around with nearly every room/wing sponsored e.g. The David Geffen Wing. Everyone will have preferences in terms of what they want to see. For me the small room with the Monet triptych .....the Jackson Pollock flag...really beautifully curated and very easy for people to experience. Its a great addition to an already great city. I imagine that on a busy day it can get manic so i think try and book online as that q moved since and quick.

A return visit to MOMA was on the cards - we did not have enough time last time - and it's possible to spend the day there and still not see and take in all the art. Art lovers must visit.

I loved this experience. Beautifully curated. And fortunately it is not too big as to not feel like you have experienced everything

Got here on a Tuesday when they opened. Line to buy tickets went pretty fast. Coat check was efficient. Can also check bags or larger items. 6 floors of galleries with more space than before. Cool installations on the 6th floor. Modern art on the 5th floor included Van Gogh’s Starry Night, several Picasso’s, Some of Monet’s water lilies, works by Matisse, Mondrian, Pollack, O’Keeffe, Miro, Cezanne, and many others. Contemporary art included a huge drawing by Keith Haring. Many digital/tv/media works of art and sculptures including their sculpture garden. Cafe and gift shops on site. You can rent audio tour devices. Gets very crowded, but you could spend hours here. $25 for adults.
