"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!

We went here during Thanksgiving weekend so there were a lot of people. Not sure if it's that way every day. But when we went, walking space is a bit narrow on some areas so be prepared to crab walk around. Otherwise, great collection of modern and impressionist artworks. Make sure you're ready to spend some money on the shop. Their wares are irresistably chic and artsy. I bought some souvenir and gifts. Most of the stuff are pretty pricey but I bought some magnets, postcards and bookmarks for a decent price. If you're into sentimental junk, the tickets also have artworks on them so you can keep them. Mine had a still shot from the anime movie Spirited Away! Wow! One of my faves so I definitely kept it. If you're an artist or have artist friends, make sure you buy the rainbow colored pencils here. Theirs is a really high quality one that you can't buy anywhere else (unless you but at their online shop, but then it'll be expensive from there). I only bought one. Wish I bought at least 5. When I was done with mine, I tried looking for a similar one online but it's never the same.

Always wanted to visit MOMA and was not disappointed in the amount of art work. You could easily spend all day looking around, some really interesting pieces and a great variety. However there were very crowded areas and the museum was really warm.

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