This is one of those must visit place in New York city, along with Metropolitan Museum of Arts, Guggenheim Museums and Foundation. The place is also one part of New York, in the middle of all the skyscrapers in middle town. The collection is also amazing, especially the collection of impressionist painters. Also expect the whole afternoon there.

MOMA is a great place to spend what time you can if you're in midtown; if you're a serious student of art plan your visit in advance so that you can take advantage of the educational services the museum offers. My time was limited because of work commitments, but it was wonderful to spend even a relatively short period of... More

If you are the museum type, this is one you must see. I've been multiple times and always see new things. Not only is the art interesting but the interior is also quite cool. Don't suggest taking young kids. Only if you are going to let them do one of the museum run programs.

I have to admit that I know virtually nothing about modern art and I am shocked to find that some string hanging on a wall is considered to be art! Starry Night by Van Gogh was a beautiful picture. The colours were amazing but there were too many people crowding round it that it was very difficult to get a... More

One word: Breathless If you are one of those modern art addict and always looking to experience art this place is for you. I have been to several modern art museum Paris, Milan, London, Seoul but the Moma has a special place in my heart. Give yourself an imagination travel just go to the Moma

I did not buy tickets in advance and was concerned when I saw the BIG line to purchase tickets, which surprisingly moved very quickly. They have a deal (that I did not buy) where you can buy tickets for Rockefeller Center as well. I stood in line longer at the coat check than I did to purchase the tickets. Staff... More

This is a museum full of great art! The temporary exhibitions can be also good, but the resources of the museum are awesome. Definitely worth standing in line to buy tickets, prices acceptable. While visiting MOMA take a Look at the MOMA stores, full of useful home equipments in the best artistic style- expensive though. On the other side of... More

Fitted into our schedule at the last minute. Friday night is free entry between 4 and 8 p.m. and boy do people take advantage of it. Even in late November the crowds just rolled in and made the whole visit a bit of a rush as we were swept round. Start at the top on floor 5 then 4 if... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
