Must see – For the modern art lovers and also for whom that loves design it is a must see! It is also wonderful to see the museum store!
MARINA ABRAMOVIC GARBAGE -- AVOID – The much talked about Abramovic stuff is pure junk, disgusting, revolting, trashy gimmickry! She has absolutely no talent -- just a fat head. I was insulted that the museum should try to pass this exhibit off as art worth some price of admission. This woman is not talented. Besides, she is ugly and has nothing that would make one want to see her -- in any way -- especially nude! Moma must be quite desperate financially to put this trash in the museum and bamboozle us into thinking it deserves our attention.
Don't get guilted into wasting your time and money – This museum is so uniformly ranked among the best in the world that I decided to give it -- and modernism -- another try. Big mistake.
There is some truly great stuff among the oldest paintings in the museum's collection, including some incredible stuff by Cezanne and Van Gogh. Apparently, the museum also has an incredible collection of photography, though I wasn't all that impressed by what I saw on my recent visit.
As for the rest, I know that many people will swear they love it, that it takes incredible talent to leave a canvas blank or just scribble randomly all over it. But those people are lying. Some of them know they are lying to you by claiming to see great artistry at work. The others are lying to themselves, convincing themselves that they can see what we ordinary Philistines cannot in order to feel good about themselves. (They are similar to people who claim that Ulysses is a satisfying book to read.)
In reality, it's crap. No matter how many pompous people claim otherwise or how many guide books recommend it, it's crap. 90 percent of the world will walk through the whole museum in less than two hours and wonder why they hell they decided to spend $20 per ticket to look at such idiocy.
My Favorite Museum in the Country – As a lover of the arts I consider myself very picky about the exhibits that certain modern museums choose to display. Having said this I consider the MOMA one of the best museums in the world.
My favorite museum – MoMa is one of the best museums in New York
Best Museum in NY – The MOMA is my favorite museum in the city. I also attended a party that the MOMA had in order to promote their Museum for donaters and is was great. They had it in their outside area which is beautiful. Estelle had performed and everthing was complimentary. I got to meet a number of interesting people and enjoyed it very much. I would highly reccomment to anyone whom is visiting NY to visit the MOMA.
Simply the best museum for modern art in the city – If you love modern art, you need to come to the Moma. It is simply the best museum of its kind in New York. It is a must see for anyone visiting the city.
must go! – MoMa is one of the best museums in New York. I am lucky that it is only 2 blocks from my work place. I usually go there on Friday evening when they offer free admission. I learned a lot about arts by visiting MoMa often. Besides the museum, I love shopping at their store. They sell a lot of creative things there.
Must go while in NY – If you have never been to New York this place is a must. You could spend the whole day there and still need more time. Sometimes on weekends they have special events and concerts.
Great exhibit – I have not been here in a long time but decided to come for the Dali exhibit. It was breathtaking and a must see!
