As a first time visitor, it was recommended by one of the guides for us to head to the 5th floor because that is where the best of the art collection is housed. Wow! It was unbelievable to see all of the amazing art from artists such as Warhol, Johns, Cezanne, Matisse, Van Gogh, Dali, Money, etc. The 4th floor... More

Expansive presentation of 2-D and 3-D art from the teens and twenties is outstanding. Not to be missed!

Understand Those into Art think this is great but if paintings aren't your thing don't bother. A family of four with teenagers found this pretty uninteresting. Yes there is Picasso etc. but he isn't God so to us it was just floors of paintings. Appreciate it's difficult to do but try a history museum. And save your money.

This museum was an absolute delight! You will see paintings by Van Gogh, Monet, Klimt, Frida Kahlo and many more excellent artists. Plan to spend at least 2 hours in there, as there is definitely enough to keep you in awe for a long time. If you are a student make sure you bring your ID for a discounted entrance... More

If you go to a big city, there is a modern art museum. New York is no exception. But if you miss the Museum of Modern Art in New York, you will regret it very much. When I went, I was seeing a photo exhibition of John Lennon's wife. Do not miss to see New York.

Spectacular collections in a very accessible museum that is just small enough to get through in a couple of hours, without feeling like you missed half the things worth seeing. Also conveniently located in the upscale neighbourhoods around Fifth Avenue and Rockefeller Center. Fabulous must-see world-famous works by Van Gogh, Picasso, Dali, Monet and much more, so much to see.... More

Of course, this a world class collection and is a must see by newcomers and veterans. I give just four stars because of the renovation. They've done a good job making a giant warehouse of art seem intimate -- you flow from intimate space to intimate space. But some paintings deserve bigger spaces with more light. Like Monet's "Water Lillies,"... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
