New Feature!



Founded in 1929, the MoMA was the first museum devoted to the modern era. Located in the heart of Midtown, it houses about 150,000 art objects including innovative European art of the 1880s. Showcasing masters like Matisse, Picasso and Van Gogh, the collection contains unparalleled holdings in every ensuing period of visual culture up to the present day, including such distinctly modern forms as film and industrial design in addition to more traditional mediums. Closed on Tuesday.

Ten Best Logo 03 Local Expert Says:

"Admission is free for all visitors during Target Free Friday Nights, (every Friday evening, 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.) but it is a mob scene. Given the importance of this museum and the collection, museum aficionados should buy the expensive ticket and enjoy a leisurely visit during the week. Also, eat at the Modern -- an Alsatian-inspired restaurant offering a delectable fare inside the museum."

Best for Museums Because: Designed by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi, MoMA, as it's known locally, is a global powerhouse with enormous international influence.
