Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

11 W 53rd Street, New York City, New York, 10019

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.

Modern Art, warts and all

The Museum of Modern Art in NYC has a very interesting history, and the collections, especially on the fifth floor, are outstanding. However, when it comes to abstract modern art, I must say that such art seems to be an effective way of separating money from very wealthy and gullible patrons.

Loved ever minute.!!! However i do think they should offer an option to buy headphones to be able to here the background on each painting. I understand you cant give them out for Covid reasons but i would have bought them if offered. Just an idea.
