"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!

What a beautiful museum and the price is right especially if you have children under the age of 16 because they are free. We started from the top floor and worked our way down and enjoyed every picture we could have time to see. Even though there was so many people the flow of movement made it easy for everyone to enjoy the art.

"Collection Galleries"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

The fifth floor with the collection galleries is my favorite. It houses many iconic pieces by some of the most significant masters of the 19th and 20th century, and meeting them in person is a very moving experience. The overall chronological flow of the galleries presents a perspective of stylistic progression and place in time, which I find useful in understanding the stories being told. These works are being rotated so repeat visits are never superfluous. There's a special exhibit right now up until Oct. 1st on Frank Lloyd Wright's work, marking the 150th anniversary of the architect’s birth. Unearthed is a multitude of detailed technical drawings painstakingly rendered the old fashion way. Plus some very unexpected fabric, tile and furniture designs, among other things, well worth seeing. The visit is not complete without a trip to the Modern on the first floor. Divine food and wine!

My daughter and I go to MoMA during the fall and spring months only, and only when it first opens on Sunday mornings. We always enjoy the sculpture garden first, with Matisse in the wall sculptures, maybe Picasso's pet goat along with other masterpieces and the calming water fountains. If you want to see Starry Night by Van Gogh, which from our experience gets the biggest crowd, do not go during the Thanksgiving/Christmas season. The crowds are overwhelming. The spring and fall are great. After all, what other museum devoted an entire floor for Picasso sculptures at that extraordinary exhibit 2 (?) years ago. And we saw the Picasso exhibit two times without crowds, when the exhibit first started. The Jackson Pollock exhibit was great. The ongoing avant-garde exhibits are also interesting. Great permanent collection. Also excellent bookstore, especially art calendars reduced to $2 from $20 in March.

I enjoyed going with my family to the MOMa. The exhibits were interesting and beautiful. It was easy to move around the museum. We did not rent the head phone but im sure if you wanted a more in depthe visit you should. We just chose to meander on our own. I love the new gift store. So spacious and a great selection on gifts.
