"Neat Place!"
May, 2016
At first, the lower exhibits were odd to me.... I couldn't believe some of the pieces that were considered as art. As we continued through the floors, this is actually a really cool place. If your looking to expand your idea of art, this place is perfect and ideal for rainy days!

The Moma is always great, but too many people during the year-end holidays... at least our queue to get the prepaid tickets was shorter than the normal one!

The number and dynamics of modern work of art and sculptures as well as films within this museum are extremely extraordinary! The layout in the different floors as well as in the garden are just amazing!! Visually it is a lovely durable experience. The restaurants are reasonably priced with good menus. If you do not have a Membership, entrance fee is very pricey: but worth it!!

"Wide Variety of Art"

Reviewed February 20, 2019 NEW
My disclaimer is that I am not fond of most modern art. The only reason we went was it was close to our hotel & admission was free on Friday evening. That being said, I believe the museum is very well done. Broad variety of art pieces, ease of movement thru the museum, & free admission to encourage people like me that would not otherwise go made for a great experience.

Sixth floor is a bit boring. The 5th floor was my favorite. There is a lot to see. It is a bit over priced, but it is a great sight to see.

Unless you LOVE art, this place is just a bore and couldn't wait to get out of there! Just not our thing but if you like your art and artists then go for it.
