|About these ratings|
You don't have to be an art lover to appreciate the Museum of Modern Art; this airy Midtown gallery also doubles as a shrine of pop culture and 20th century history. Some of the most significant contemporary pieces hang on its walls, including Picasso's Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans, Van Gogh's Starry Night¸ Dalí's The Persistence of Memory, Monet's Water Lilies, and the list goes on and on. "Fantastic works from so many greats like Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Picasso, to name a few... A must for any Art lover!" raves one TripAdvisor user. The $25 entry fee can be hard to stomach, but travelers insist you won't regret the money spent.
You'll spot MoMA on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues (you can take the E or the V train to Fifth Avenue, or the B, D or F trains to Rockefeller Center). The museum is open every day except Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. It stays open until 8 p.m. on Fridays, and every Thursday in July and August until 8:45 p.m. To avoid the sticker shock, you can enter for free on Fridays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Visit the Museum of Modern Art's website for details.
