Museum of Modern Art in New York, MOMA in acronym, was founded in 1929 by philanthropists Yorkers recognized as Abby Aldrich Rockefeller. These gentlemen managed over the years to put together what is today the most extensive and important modern and contemporary art collection in the world. Would be nice if you plan before going what you would like to see and distribute your time properly. The MOMA is quite a large museum; it’s going to take at least two hours to visit quickly. If you have little time and you are not that passionate about modern art, the floors that are more worth to visit are the fourth and fifth one, where you can find some of the most famous paintings of the story.

This museum also has on the 3th floor renowned collections of graphic and industrial design, architecture, photography and drawing. We especially recommend the graphic and industrial design collection, the MOMA has been a leader in incorporating their profiles collections of our contemporary lives that we ignore as an aesthetic dimension routine. For example, there is a room dedicated to the Helvetica font as design object, and another with Atari, dial telephones, televisions from the sixties, chairs, furniture, pieces that you might use every day. 2nd Floor meanwhile is dedicated to meeting illustrated and printed books and film collections, where they also have rooms where you can see film series in permanent rotation. Here there is also a cafeteria where they can revive energy. You can find more than 100 thousand pieces on permanent display.

 

Our advice:

Don’t miss it; you should visit it not once but many times. If you try to do it all in one day you will be saturated, if you insist on seeing everything, you can make a couple of breaks to clean your mind in the sculpture garden designed by Philip Johnson in the fifties, an oasis in the middle of the city. The building itself is already a collector's item, which achieved its goal integrating well with the surrounding architecture, to appreciate we recommend you to go to the sixth floor, enjoy the view of Midtown Manhattan from the large windows.

Unlike most museums of the city, MOMA is closed on Tuesdays instead of Mondays. Do not forget that! But the truth is that a day is not enough time to visit this huge museum, but yes, serves as appetizer for an upcoming trip. With an entry ticket to MOMA with less than 30 days acquired can enter free at Contemporary Art Center PS1. With the New York Pass card the entrance to MOMA is totally free.
