Loved MoMa - great variety of art and easy to get around - not too busy and the coffee shop next to the gift shop has real coffee 👍

So much to see. I was with my Hubby, Aunt, son(1 yr old) and Little cousins (8 And 10) and there was something to fit everyone's interest.

We loved this museum. It’s huge! Allow several hours or even a full day. We took two of the free tours - each lasts an hour, and they’re great for seeing key pieces of art & sculpture that you could otherwise easily miss.

The pieces are really well displayed. Famous pieces by well known artists such as Van Gogh and Picasso are on display. Additionally, there was a section devoted to Egyptian artifacts. Really beautiful

Our experience in this museum is thrilling. Excellent areas of ancient history from almost every place on earth. Original sculptures, paintings and arqueology artefacts. A must do while in New York.

Went in free Friday Absolutely packed . My daughter & I both said I’m a celebrity get me out of here . It is basically an art gallery . Glad I didn’t pay 20 dollars to get in

The Met is pricey but well worth. There are incredibly extensive but well curated collections of virtually any type of art you can think of. Oh and the building itself is amazing. A must visit for any NYC trip.
