We had an enjoyable visit to MOMA. The music/art exhibit on the 7th floor is so interesting and should not be missed. The Living Wall is breathtaking and fascinating. And of course, they have the best gift shop in town!

Was okay and not impressed at all and steep price to get in. I enjoyed the gift shop alot more. Would rather do something else as everyone was raving about this place.

"Great modern art museum experience"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Stunning building and diverse collections an exhibitions, which cover the vast definitions of what constitutes art. This will become one of the great modern art museums of all time in the perfect city for creation and in the perfect location within the city. The Munch exhibition had stirred up much interest although personally I find his work depressing and seeing it on a large scale makes it worse. There is the In Situ restaurant in house, worth a visit and a great shop for all sorts of interesting things.

"Rothko, Munch and more - what a treat"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed September 15, 2017 NEW
The Edvard Munch exhibit was simply outstanding. The audio guide is a must have - it is so intuitive and relaxed - so beautifully curated - most recommended. The pieces of art are sublime. They have benches everywhere - and in front of really important works - it was my first experience of seeing Mark Rothko and I was moved to tears. The Munch exhibit has so much about his life and the reason as to why his work 'Scream' is so important. Mind you, that painting wasn't there - I know it was stolen from a museum in Europe earlier - but don't know if they ever got it back. What a shame. Please visit, and leave at least half an hour for their gift shop- it is very very tasteful!

"Between the good and ordinary"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed September 14, 2017 NEW
We went here for the Edvard Munch exhibition, Between the Clock and the Bed, which was very good and instructive (if lacking one obvious painting). The entry tickets ($62 for two) allowed access to the whole museum, but we thought this was expensive. It was not easy to find the stairs between floors. We liked some of the other modern art, but some of it was of the 'white cat in a snowstorm' school where we did not see the merit in it. We stopped in the café for a snack but it lacked sufficient seating. Great building overall.
