New York City does not lack excellent museums, and it is sometimes hard to choose which ones to explore. The Museum of Modern Art is one of our favourite. Started in 1929, its constant success has been calling for more exhibition space. Since 2006, the new MoMA designed by the Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi, presents an inviting space to explore a panorama of modern art where world’s masterpieces that have shaped the history of contemporary art are showcased. Here is a very brief overview of some of our favourite paintings.
- The MoMA store is excellent to find original gift ideas.
- Plan time to sit and enjoy the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.
- Refer to the MoMA website for specific details and opening hours, including the free Friday evenings.
- Check out this interactive map (quick tutorial) for the specific details to help you plan your trip and more articles and photos (zoom out) about the area!
