We have visited this smaller museum before but not in a long time. Entry is inexpensive and free if you visit MOMA first - within 14 days. It is very close to the Court Square Subway stop.
They have a small restaurant, but I have never eaten there. They do have a store with some nice items and postcards.
The special exhibits I visited are Rirkrit Tiravanija, lots of videos in various galleries. There also was an interactive space to make a cup of tea and a recording studio. I think you have to reserve the recording studio.
Also visited the James Turrell room where you can watch the sky as it changes and birds fly by. There are beautiful wooden benches. Just relax and enjoy the light.
Look around the museum for the "hidden art" displays for a real thrill! And visit the "Historic Boiler Room" in the basement.
Also, the special exhibit by Leslie Martinez: The Fault of Formation was showing until April.

This museum has a well curated, explained and displayed collection. The architecture, interior and exterior design of the buildings is a beautiful work of art in itself. The timed entry process made for good crowd control so it is easy the view the art works . It was wonderful to view the Boubare exhibition and to see masterpieces by Picasso and others.

Contemporary art is not for everyone. Good museum, good space, the art in it is so subjective that I only recommend this museum to open minded people who don't have much to do on a Saturday morning.

We came for the "Greater New York" exhibit which featured local community artists, although many were born elsewhere. We were able to attend one artist talk that was interesting focusing on the photography of Hiram Maristany.
The art ranged from sculpture, photography, film and projection to sound. There was even an exhibit of items tumbled on site.
This space has changing exhibits and you should see what is on offer before going.
It is inexpensive. They have a store and restaurant on site.
When we were there, they had time tickets and mask indoors were required.

I don't normally love modern art, but this collection (esp the NY-centered exhibits) were unique and very thought-provoking. The setting in a restored public school brought me right back to elementary school days.

It was definitely quite a bit smaller than expected, but there were a few interesting exhibits, and the staff were very nice and welcoming.

Not expensive but small... Nice way to kill a couple of hours. Nothing really special but the exhibits do change. Check first before going.

For $10 per person, you can enjoy a great verify of empty rooms.
We want our money back for the tickets, subway ride, and time wasted coming here.

We came here all the way from Manhattan, spent 30 minutes one way on a subway, and when we entered the museum, it was empty... Like, there is so much space. If this building were used as a shelter for homeless people, it would be better to use the square footage it occupies.

This is MoMA’s more experimental space, and I like it a lot! It’s in a cool, old school building, with great exposed brick and wooden floors. Beautiful large windows with tons of light. Feels less snobby or pretentious than many other NYC museums. The art is also edgier, maybe even more controversial. More raw. And I like that.

My favorite experience here was an expansive exhibit focusing on the art of incarcerated prisoners. The work was beautiful, moving. Sometimes heart-wrenching. I wish I had been able to spend more time with each piece, to truly digest the gravity and the pain, but the spaces are small, and only so many people are allowed to be in one room at a time due to COVID restrictions.

There was also a neat, colorful, and cheeky Niki de Saint Phalle sculpture exhibit. It tied in with some of her more serious social justice work.

There is a cafe that offers counter service and has a big courtyard for outdoor dining. I didn’t try it, but it would have topped off a great experience.

I almost passed up this museum, but I ended up enjoying it very much, probably even more than the main MoMA campus. I’ll keep an eye out for future events.

An old public school converted into a showcase for Modern art. I understand is not the amazing Manhattan MoMa, but if we are prepared and understanding go contemporary act, it's a good experience. The hammocks in the front are very nice, I don't know if they are a temporary installation. Exploring will be good if you have an open mind.
