The Museum of Modern Art
Praised as the greatest collection of modern art in the world by The New York Times, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) offers a panoramic overview of modern and contemporary art, from the innovative European painting and sculpture of the 1880s to today's film, design, and performance art. Six floors of art galleries in midtown Manhattan include highlights such as Monet's Water Lilies, van Gogh's The Starry Night, Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, Matisse's Dance (I), and Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans, as well as contemporary work by Elizabeth Murray, Cindy Sherman, Ai Weiwei, and many others. Spend the whole day at the Museum: special exhibitions, films, audio programs in eight languages, and a free pass to MoMA PS1 are all included with admission. The MoMA Stores offer a wide selection of books, design objects, jewelry, furniture, clothing, and more; and MoMA's variety of dining options include the Michelin Star restaurant The Modern, the more casual Terrace 5, and the family-friendly Cafe 2.
