"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!

Huge museum containing countless treasures of modern art. The only downside is that museum is a bit crowded due to its popularity.

This is hands-down one of my favorite arts museums, in the city or elsewhere. It's not for everyone, as it tends towards (as the name says) modern art, so if you don't like modern art, then go to the Met instead. This museum has an exhaustive number of permanent exhibits and some famous paintings, such as Dalí's The Persistence of Memory, as well as fantastic temporary exhibits (a few years ago they had an exhibit dedicated to Tim Burton, and they also had a life artwork performance by Marina Abramoviç). Some of the art is more interpretive, which I think is wonderful and makes the art consumer engage with the art in a more thoughtful manner.

Maybe I am getting older but in my first trip to NEW YORK CITY, 1995, I had a very good special impact when I was to the MOMA. After, I went a looot of times and TODAY, I only go in the free days, MONDAY, from 4 to 8 pm, because I don´t like the "modern?" art, junk art, or whatever... I like to go to see the DALI, la persistencia de la memoria, The VAN GOGH, the ROUSSEAU and etc PICASSO but...No more space in my head to see this KIND of ? ART...

Best museum in NYC. If you can only got to one, this is it. And frankly, the coffee at the Terrace is some of the best anywhere. So there's that in addition to Monet, Warhol, FLW and SO much more. Yes - some weird stuff. But 98% of it is fabulous.

First time visitor. Blown away by their collection of Van Gogh, Renoir and Warhol. Suggestion for visiting. Avoid the lines to purchase tickets. Use the self service kiosks instead.
