"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!

"quicker to get in"

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!

"Hit or miss experience"

My first visit to MOMA was in 2013, and I remember enjoying it well enough. Starry Night, Water Lilies, Campbell's Soup, Persistence of Memory, and more. The museum was bustling, and the 5th floor was amazing. Fast forward to Oct 2017, and I decided to bite the bullet on $25 tickets so I could bring my daughter for the first time. While we were standing in the extremely long, poorly organized ticket line, a gentlemen walked up to me, handed me two tickets, and said with some annoyance "Just take them." He walked away without saying anything else, and I looked to see the time stamp was less than an hour before our encounter. It didn't take us long to see why. Several areas were closed (including the entire 4th floor), and most of the works we were eager to see on the 5th floor were "not on view." No Campbell's Soup, no Persistence of Memory, nothing by Klimt, etc. We did see Starry Night (under glass, roped off), and Water Lilies. But many of the most impressive pieces were gone, and when we asked a docent about this, he admitted that the museum doesn't have a very clear way to communicate this to patrons. We were pretty disappointed in our experience, and left within an hour (like the man who gave us the tickets). This was in stark contrast to our experience at The Met the day before, which was quite enjoyable (and much more vast, and cheaper!!)

OK, first off let me say I have little of no interest in modern art. Some of these painting look like a third grader could do them, give them a name and say it is art, I saw one painting that look as if someone splattered paint from a brush onto a canvas, I could have that, On the other hand, the top floor did have an interesting display on the origin if some clothes, I did enjoy that, For me though, my least favorite stop in NY

If you are at the MoMa over a weekend, the free Friday is a must. Although the museum was packed, the line for free tickets moved extremely fast, and we were able to visit the entire museum in about an hour and a half. Highlights of the museum are: Picasso, Monet, Cezanne, Kahlo, Surat, and Van Gogh.

This museum is only worth a visit if you REALLY like modern art. If you are intending to visit to see whether you do or not then you could find yourself in for a dull visit. Worth looking out for Van Gogh's "Starry Starry Night" though.
