Top sights in New York
Definitely one of New York's most impressive museums, MoMA is itself architecturally as striking as the artworks housed within. For some help with how to make the most of your time, here are some tips and advice.
MoMA is open daily from 10:30AM to 5:30PM (except on Christmas and Thanksgiving) and open until 8:00PM for UNIQLO Free Fridays, which tend to be busy.
With 6 floors of exhibits, it's worth looking at a museum map online before you visit. There are also tours and free talks daily between 11:30AM and 1:30PM.
The painting and sculpture galleries are on the 4th and 5th floors and can be a great point to start exploring if you can't make up your mind where to begin.
Included in the price of admission, these interesting audio tours can give you far greater insight into the exhibits. Just remember, you need to leave ID to take a tour!
MoMA also houses multiple bars and restaurants. Why not take a break from the galleries and enjoy some of the wonderful cuisine on offer?
MoMA displays iconic works by artists like Henri Matisse, and is such an important architectural structure itself, so it's very popular for tourists and you may have to queue to enter the galleries. But don't worry; even on UNIQLO Free Fridays (from 4:00PM to 8:00PM) the line tends to move quickly. If you're worried, you can purchase a skip the line ticket in advance.
The price of checking your coat and bags is included in the admission price, and is definitely recommended before you set off around the museum. But be aware that even in warm weather, sometimes the galleries can be a little cold, so bring a sweater!
Gift shops may not be high on your list of priorities (or budget) but the MoMA shop really is exceptional and worth taking a look at on your way out of the museum.

What people are saying about Museum of Modern Art
Booked in the morning after we had a look to the weather forcast. => no waiting in the row
In New York, easy to take subway, you can go to Battery Park , pick your boarding pass Ferry ticket to Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island Immigration Museum. You should to know which subway line take you to right place. Google map will help you. Central Park is good place for walk.
Very good value. Helped us get very organised about the attractions and what was available to us.
I was hoping for a full scale Abstract Expressionism, 'got' just 1 De Kooning and 2 Rothkos - and a room full of (ugly by me) Picassos. I think it was just luck of the draw - a friend of mine, at different time, saw a room full of De Koonings.... Still, one of the best expositions I've ever seen - recommended always!
I bought our pass on-line about a fortnight before we left for New York with my 18 year old daughter. I got an e-mail in reply giving instructions on how to exchange the voucher for the pass when we got to New York. We exchanged ours at Ripleys but which you can do at several attractions in the city. We then had the choice of five out of the sixty odd attractions offered. We chose the Radio City Music Hall, Empire State building, Top of the Rock, The American Museum of Natural History and Ripley's Believe it or not. All were excellent and there were many others we would have liked to have done. New York is quite expensive and to have paid separately for entry would have cost far more than we paid for the pass. Well worth doing.
