I don't typically gravitate towards art museums, but the idea of seeing classics I had heard of was really exciting! Unfortunately, "Starry Night" was on loan to a different museum, but I still got to take a look at pieces by Salvator Dali and Monet, and I discovered my new favorite piece, "Drowning Girl." There are hundreds of works of art here. You could spend an entire day exploring all of the exhibit spaces!

"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!

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!
