The MOMA has an entire section dedicated to innovations in design including the original Macintosh computer, funky furniture, wild toys, and some amazing architecture.
This is by far the coolest art museum you'll visit and a great place to see some famous works by Van Gogh, Picasso, Andy Warhol, and Salvador Dali.

The MoMA is a must see place. I was a bit reluctant to go at first, since traveling always leaves me tired of museums and monuments, but I am glad I went. The art exhibits there really make you think, and the mediums vary largely.
I went when there was an exhibit on Frank Lloyd Wright and his architecture and fell in love with the exhibit. I think everyone can find something they find interesting here, even if you are particularly a art enthusiast.

Probably my favourite museum in the world, ranks alongside the National in London at least. An incredible selection of artwork in a very relaxing, modern building

Essentially the best art museum I have ever been to. Granted I have not been to the Louvre yet but the MoMA is world class. With an incredible permanent collection and always great new works. Featuring pieces by some of the world most famous artists the MoMA is awe inspiring for any audience.

I think every visit to The City should include a visit to MoMa. Rotating exhibits are awesome - I usually take that in first,and depending on the time, add in some of the permanent collection. One recent visit included the tremendously enjoyable Magritte collection followed by some Jackson Pollock, Jasper Johns and Warhol. 4th floor windows overlooking the sculpture garden offers great photo ops of the skyline as an extra bonus. Member benefits may make joining more cost effective if there is more than two in your party.

Has to be the most impressive collection of modern art in the United States (if not the world). Definitely a must see for any visitor to New York City. The challenge here is to digest the collection without being too overwhelmed. The museum is immense and the collection is incredibly diverse. My recommendation is to visit multiple times and to focus on a different area of the museum during each visit.
The museum's specialty is American modern art but there is something here for everyone and the collection is certainly global. A great place to actually see those signature pieces that you've seen in textbooks, magazines, and websites for years.
Even if you don't like audio tours, do yourself a favor and pick up an ear piece for this one. You'll get more out of the visit and you can choose to opt in only on those pieces or rooms that you want to explore in more detail. MoMA also has a great iPhone ap that you can use as you tour the collection.

One of the must-visit museumes in US, possibly in the world. Great collection, inspirational interior (and exterior). Check out there website for the special deal. It was free on Friday evening when I was there. They run a weekly special entree-rate for the art lovers.

The lovely Museum of Modern Art, also known as MoMA. is where modern art lovers should dwell. You can see both quirky modern designs, as well as great works of the past. I was mostly interested in seeing Romanian born Constantin Brancusi’s work, exhibited on the fifth floor. Unlike popular belief, he was Romanian that acquired French citizenship. Due to the Communist regime in our shared native Romania, he mostly resided in France.
For pop art fans, there are several pieces of the late Andy Warhol. As far as technology goes, you will be surprised by some of the early Macintosh computers. Although I am not the biggest fan of contemporary modern art, I would never say no to the exquisite paintings of Picasso, Dali, Van Gogh and Frida Kahlo; the pieces exhibited in MOMA almost took me back to the Reina Sofia Museum in Madrid.
Tickets: Skip the regular $25 ticket for free admission during Target Free Friday Nights, held every Friday evening from 4:00 to 8:00pm. Go early, the lines get quite long.

MoMA has a very impressive collection of modern art. Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night is permanently based here as well as Pablo Picasso's Three Musicians and many other famous art works.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers
