The Basics

An essential stop on New York City’s cultural circuit, MoMA offers enough inspiration for an entire day. Admire masterworks like Monet’s “Water Lilies," Vincent van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” and Warhol’s “Campbell's Soup Cans,” then escape the crowds with an avant-garde film in the downstairs theaters, or relax in the outdoor sculpture garden or terrace cafe.

The museum also offers free workshops and events in the interactive Paula and James Crown Creativity Lab and the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studio, as well as VIP evening tours that let you enjoy the art in a quieter environment, after the museum closes to the general public.

The Picasso exhibit was incredible. There were so many awesome pieces of work there. Seeing Starry Night was a highlight to. Reading about these pictures in books is one thing, but seeing them in real life is another.

Very nice museum with a lot of diversity of art and many major masterpieces. We went during a week day and the museum was very empty, which was a fantastic (and safe) experience. Highly recommend.

It was a pleasure to visit the museum after sooo many months. The art was amazing, I decided to visit only 2 floors so that I can come back again. Sat in the garden for a while. Thank you for a great experience.

Excellent museum. I've been on the opening day and it was crowded. However, everything inside was great!
