Excellent show. His work is fascinating. Two floors were devoted to his artwork. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Most of his art are images within images which are truly amazing. There were videos as well as art which had moving parts.

Cool building with some great views from the top floor. But the quality of your visit will depend on the exhibits they have at the time. We were underwhelmed.

To pricy for what it is. Not what we expect.We bought the combo with The International Photography Museum . Don't waste your time there.

I stopped in at the New Museum on accident, as I was in the neighborhood for a different purpose. I found the architecture of the museum interesting, but the "art" itself was very strange/weird and did not appeal to me in any way. The descriptions...More

The museum costs $18 per person but there are not very many exhibits. I saw everything in less than 2 hours. It is truly modern art and some of the exhibits were very thought provoking. Some were trash but that's the way modern art goes!...More
