Opened in 1929, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has become the most influential museum of modern art worldwide.
Considered by many to have the best collections of modern art, the MoMA holds masterpieces such as The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh, Les Demoiselles d’Avignon by Picasso, The Persistence of Memory by Salvador Dalí and Claude Monet’s Water Lilies.
The MoMA is one of the largest museums of modernist art, and therefore it will take you at least two hours to see the whole museum (with a quick pace). If you don’t have enough time or if modern art isn’t what most interests you, then we recommend you visit at least the 4th and 5th floor, where you will find some of history’s most famous paintings.
This museum is free on Friday from 4 pm to 8 pm, saving you up to $25 per person if you choose to go then.
