"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!

Another required stop whenever we're in NYC. Love the art and the space. Hours or just a quick visit to old friends -- it's worth the time. There is always new exhibits and challenges to what you think of as art. The old modern masters keep a good anchor on everything.

My wife and I went to Moma with our daughter while on vacation in NYC. At first, I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised to find works from such artists as Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet, Jackson Pollack, Andy Warhol and one of my daughter's favorite, Robert Rauschenberg. Maybe more importantly I realized, with the help of my daughter who's actually in the process of getting her master's degree in fine arts and served as a very informative tour guide for us, that art has a very definitive relationship with the world around us...even modern art! This is an amazing museum with some of the world's most beautifully painted art from the last 100 or so years. If you've been apprehensive about modern art you may find yourself actually loving it after spending time here.

"Frank Lloyd Wright revealed in MoMA's exhibition."

Our visit was really to see th Frank Lloyd Wright show 'Unpacking the Studio', a marvelous presentation of drawings and models from this great architect's greatest buildings. The show includes as well videos of Wright himself in some of the buildings and with patrons, also appearing on tv shows. It is lively, beautifully installed and also features an exploration in video of the work it took to restore the models and pieces in the show to presentation quality. Fascinating and interesting explanations provided by the young woman who did the work!

MoMA is Mecca for modern art lovers. The collection they have is remarkable and goes from Starry Night by Van Gogh to Drowning Girl by Roy Lichtenstein, from Campbell's Soup Cans by Andy Warhol to The Dance by Henri Matisse. The countless of art pieces follow each other in the galleries and at the end of the day you are amazed by the journey. MoMA is located in midtown Manhattan. The entry price for the museum is 25 USD, however worth every penny.
