"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!

MOMA is like a theme park for your eyes. The diverse exhibitions, film programs, and performance programs are exhilarating, electrifying and stirring. Whether you are fascinated by art or just tagging along with friends, something in that museum will speak to you. There’s tons to see in this expansive museum, so you might need to spend a couple of hours here. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes so you can explore all showcases with ease.

"Incredible art museum"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 19, 2018 NEW
The MoMA is simply incredible. Even as a person who does not know much about modern art, I greatly enjoyed myself and spent four hours walking around the museum. The free audio guide (included in the entrance fee) is very informative and I highly recommend it, as it explains the art in greater detail than the wall labels. I went on a Wednesday morning and it was packed, so be prepared for a crowd.
