The current building dates from 2007. Before this date, the museum had been located in different buildings: an office on the 4th floor of Hudson St, a space in the New School Gallery and a permanent exhibition in SoHo.
The museum has seven floors, of which three are for exhibitions. On the top floor you’ll find a trendy terrace with very good views of the city.
The museum offers free audio guides for iPods.
Not Worth Visiting
The New Museum might one day include a collection that is worth visiting, but for now, every time we have been to this gallery, we are always left wondering if the whole thing is a farce...
The best part of the visit is the façade of the building and the 7th floor terrace.
