If you plan to visit New York City and truly appreciate contemporary art, you must plan a day at The Museum of Modern Art for a complete education on all things modern.
Located at West 53rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA as it is affectionately nicknamed) is an art-lover's paradise. It was first established in 1929 as a source of art education, bringing the finest modern art in the world to Manhattan. You can easily spend an entire day wandering, completely transfixed, through the numerous collection galleries and exhibitions.
MoMA's collection has grown over the years to include about 150,000 works of art, including paintings, photographs, sculptures, drawings and architectural models. The Museum also owns 22,000 films, videos and other related media, and MoMA's Library houses 300,000 books and periodicals....more information
