I did not buy tickets in advance and was concerned when I saw the BIG line to purchase tickets, which surprisingly moved very quickly. They have a deal (that I did not buy) where you can buy tickets for Rockefeller Center as well. I stood in line longer at the coat check than I did to purchase the tickets. Staff... More

This is a museum full of great art! The temporary exhibitions can be also good, but the resources of the museum are awesome. Definitely worth standing in line to buy tickets, prices acceptable. While visiting MOMA take a Look at the MOMA stores, full of useful home equipments in the best artistic style- expensive though. On the other side of... More

Fitted into our schedule at the last minute. Friday night is free entry between 4 and 8 p.m. and boy do people take advantage of it. Even in late November the crowds just rolled in and made the whole visit a bit of a rush as we were swept round. Start at the top on floor 5 then 4 if... More

My sister and have both been to the MOMA several times in the past, but totally enjoyed having yet another visit during our week in the city in October. There is a lot to see and the upper floors have some of the more well known artists, but also some other very interesting pieces from artists you will enjoy. Top... More

Museum is very nice. Famous paintings on display, including The Starry Night. Definitely worth the trip. MUST check your bags, umbrellas etc. Most places allow you to carry your backpack in front or by the handle, but NOT HERE!

I think this was the best museum in NYC. Staff was a little too quick tell us not to get too close to the paintings. Good food and wine in the restaurant, nice place to sit!

It was a very rainy day in NYC so we headed off to MOMA for the morning, it opened at 1030, it's not cheap at $25pp but it's well set up with free coat and bag checking. The exhibitions are regularly changed, they were thought provoking, shocking and beautiful. The restaurant/cafe was nice but expensive, they have good shops. Well... 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.
