Beautiful exhibits, crowded even on a weekday but well worth wading through the crowd. Lots of places to sit and rest from all the walking. Restaurant was crowded so long wait but fun Andy Warhol art soup display appropriately displayed right in front of restaurant. I think it is a 20.00 or 25.00 admission fee to get into MOMA. Varied...

Worth it just to see "Starry Night" by van Gogh! The whole gallery is spectacular, late 19th century art and later. Some famous work, some confronting work, some that might redefine your view of art. Great static displays as well as interesting special exhibitions. Must see!

The MOMA is always great to go to, the only complaint I have is I never have enough time to see it all. It is so great, so entertaining, such masterpieces to see. Truly a great place to go.

I am an out of town MoMA member and try to visit every time I am in NYC. I am always thrilled, never disappointed in the rotating exhibits and always enjoy viewing their incredible standing collection of Impressionistic artists. Recommended.

I love to see art, think about it, read about it, talk about it. In short, I am biased. This is a great museum - fabulous collection and beautiful environment. We did not have enough time and, alas, could not get back for a second round. Good subway directions on website. Lengthy coat check process. Get advance tickets online.

I loved the MoMA and spent a whole day there walking around. They also have a good restaurant for a quick lunch.

We only spend about an hour during their free admission time. However, if you want to go during "regular" hours you could spend hours looking around. Very open and inviting gallery spaces

Define "modern" - there are so many variations and you'd be surprised how far back some of this dates. From time to time the also host performance art. There is usually a featured movie or two of unusual interest.

Anytime your 13-year-old loves something cultural you've got to give it a 5. He was impressed to see paintings he learned about in school (Picasso especially. He also thought the 60s exhibit was great. I simply loved it all!

In NYC I think this is the best modern art museum. The permanent collection houses some incredible treasures and they periodically bring some classics out on rotation. The temporary exhibits can be a real hit or miss, but then i can always go back to the permanent collections. I really loved the cafe they had there but right now it's... 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.
