Recently visited the biennial ad it was terrific. Extraordinarly interesting and really gives you the flavor of contemporary art. Love the new digs as well. Great neighborhood and great space. Go!

The location in the Meat Packing district is interesting, but the museum doesn’t have a lot to see for the steep admission fee. We were there when they had their biennial and they showed some interesting art there, I especially enjoyed Ilana Harris-Babou. The permanent...More

New York City is blessed with many great museums, but this one should be last on your list. Not worth the admittance price. The walk on the high line for free is worth more in this visitors opinion. And we love, seriously love NYC

Museum of modern art, relatively small and modest compared to other famous New York museums. What is interesting about him is the way he is built and his balconies that also feature art.

Nice facility, good restaurants. The quality of the exhibits will obviously vary depending on the artists. My dislike of a recent exhibit centered on the fact that it centered more on political statements than quality of the artwork.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

We went on a Saturday and there weren't any significant lines then. I would imagine that it would be even better on a weekday.
