"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!

So much to see and so many works that we knew so well. Wonderful to see them all and be able to see all the details made by the artists. Great experience.

"Good but congested"

Excellent exhibits but as expected busy at the ‘ star’ works of art. Some refurbishment underway so not so easy to navigate. The left luggage service has to be the most unfriendly experience I’ve endured in years.

"Something to do if it's raining outside...."

The collection at MOMA is pretty eclectic...They've got some great pieces but not a lot of anything... And oh boy is it crowded..getting a good uninterrupted look at anything is pretty difficult. It really was OK - but I expected oh so much more from what is supposed to be one of the art destinations in the world.

"Starry Night was on loan, less one star"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 15, 2018 NEW
Starry Night is one of my favorite paintings. Having seen it years ago, I wanted to see it again. But it was on loan, hence less one star. Actually, I would probably only give it four stars anyway. I found it a bit underwhelming, finishing my tour in about 90 minutes (compared to spending more than 5 hours at the MET and not even coming close to seeing it all). It may be the "most" comprehensive modern art museum in the United States, but I believe the Thyssen in Madrid and the Musee d'orsay in Paris surpasses it. And it was a bit disappointing that only two of warhol's pieces were on exhibit in his hometown museum. I did like seeing his Gold Marilyn tho.

"BEST PLACE EVER"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed November 15, 2018 NEW
I travelled in US for 6 months. During my trip, I made a few city trips from cities to cities and I’d like to talk about New York because I have visited a nice place who people should know so much it is beautiful and interesting. So, the place I am talking about is the MOMA museum. It’s an Art modern museum which includes more than 100 painters and designers from all over the world. When it’s cold outside in NYC, it’s nice to be in a place like this. You have also in it, a coffee bar, some stuff to eat, and a gift shop You can take pictures, so that’s nice to keep some souvenirs It’s also possible to have a tour (60minutes) or you can come by group and get a no waiting line I recommend this place if you have the possibility to visit Manhattan!
