Top ways to experience The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
How to get there
  • 5th Ave / 53rd St • 4 min walk
  • 57th St • 4 min walk

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not happy with the lack of signage and directions. For example, get off the elevator on the second floor. On the wall, it says Cafe , but no arrow indicating whether to go to the left or the right. We only wanted to see certain paintings and no one was good at telling us where they were. Tried using their QR code but couldn’t get all maps to show.

I understand absolutely nothing about modern art, but this was still a great time. Even if you don't know what the hell you're looking at, it's genuinely hilarious seeing some of the stuff that's ended up in here - like the block of solid blue and the nation of Kyrgyzstan catching strays on a banner.

Van Gough's Starry Night and painting for other world class artists make MOMA well worth the price of admission.
Plenty to see.

A great museum with a great selection of art. Especially enjoyed Van Gogh starry night. We spent about four hours there. It was not too crowded. The sculpture garden was rather disappointing.

A fantastic collection of art and a wonderful building. One of the best in the world.

But they seemed to completely fill the museum on Wednesday ( maybe it’s the day the Metropolitan museum is closed ?) and every gallery was over filled with people. Even with a reserved time ticket I felt crowded to the point where I couldn’t see the art

So maybe a Thursday would have been a better day

The place is huge and crowded. It was hard to focus on things because of the people everywhere. Some rooms were really wonderful, with familiar classics. Others make you wonder why the stuff was in a museum at all. But as wife wife pointed out, the people making the selections know a lot more about it than I do. It was an interesting experience, but not something I feel compelled to do again.

The best and the only art gallery I have been to. I got to see: 1 Frida Kahlo, 13 Picassos, 1 Edvard Munch, Van Gough's starry night, 1 Salvador Dali, Claude Monets' water lilies, 3 Jackson pollux and countless more if you love paintings and art you should do here with the family.

Make sure you set aside at least half a day to get round the amazing collections. And kids go free - bonus!

We did not prepare ahead of time to see this museum. We just adored this museum but on the next visit, we will plan on which exhibits we will visit. This museum is large and there is so much to see that you really need a plan so that you are not, overwhelmed.

I accidentally purchased tickets to this museum and I’m glad I did. It was a great first experience and I recommend it. You will spend a good 3 hours, so be prepared. I do recommend you leave your children home so you can thoroughly enjoy it and there are some risqué art displayed.
