The Whitney Museum of American Art, founded in 1930 by the artist and philanthropist Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, houses the foremost collection of American art from the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Mrs. Whitney, an early and ardent...more

I have to say Warhol is not my favorite but it was awesome to see so much of his work in one place. Many of his well known pieces are there. As well as lesser known pieces, sketches, videos and more. I never realized how...More
I just adored the Andy Warhol exhibit at the Whitney. So well organized, lots of great gifts in the Shop and wonderful docents as well. Love the new venue in the heart of the Meatpacking District. Really fabulous!
I really never understood Warhol until I saw this exhibit. The retrospective was extremely well done with pieces of his early works all the way up to his final piece. The paintings are spread over three floors, I would say you need about two to...More
Great retrospective exhibit of Warhol's life works tracing his start in the late 1950s until his death in 1987. Many of his most iconic works are displayed. Well worth getting your tickets in advance online, beat the ticket line and crowds at the door.
If you are a fan of Warhol, you would enjoy this exhibition. His artwork is spread over 3 floors. The 1st floor showcases a number of portraits of well-known celebrities and lesser known subjects (and self-portraits), highlighting Warhol's breadth of portraiture subjects. This display is...More
You forget how influential Andy Warhol was on American culture. This retrospective, the first since his death three decades ago, is comprehensive and compelling. Not surprisingly, it's also quite crowded, especially on weekends. Our solution to waiting on line was to buy a year's membership...More
I found this museum nice but subpar for contemporaneous art, especially compared with the MoMA or the Pompidou center in Paris.
The collections are small and the one on Warhol was not very well organized, spreading other three levels without clear organization.
However the staff...More
Heard about this a few weeks ago so bought tix online from the museum for the first entry of the morning at 10:30AM. Place was already hopping when we got there, I think members get in earlier.
Having tix was very helpful as attraction pass...More
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
stroll down elegant narrow streets with beautiful brownstones. When you need a break, you can always stop in at one of the many quaint eateries or cafes to soak in the atmosphere, or head to the western edge of the neighborhood to enjoy magnificent waterfront views while taking a leisurely walk in Hudson River Park.

Membership costs $90, so you have to decide how often you would go, and you could then go any time and not have to fight the crowds on Friday. I personally would not pay less than $20 as an adult or $15 as a senior. It is an excellent museum in a good neighborhood, so you could go down to the Hudson while there. The museum cafe was reasonable and pleasant. The museum is definitely worth a visit, and to be honest, I made my first visit only recently and joined, despite the fact that I've been in the city since 1972!
