New York guide: The MOMA

New York guide: The MOMA

Ahhh I’m so excited to write this.

The MOMA in New York is FULL of the most incredible and famous paintings and artwork. Including the stunning; Starry Night (Van Gogh), Water Lilies (Monet), Persistance of Time (Dali), Campbell’s Soup Cans (Andy Warhol) and Drowning Girl (Roy Lichtenstein) – which are just the beginnings of what there is!

It also features a hidden outside sculpture garden that is such a relaxing place to chill in the sunshine for a bit which a cute little water feature. You could well spend a lot of time here.


At $25 entrance fee, its not the cheapest attraction in New York but for me it was well worth the price. Plus it is free for ALL visitors on Friday nights from 4:00 to 8:00 pm – but there are BIG queues.

One tip, if you have a backpack or large bag they will ask you to ‘check’ the bag into a cloakroom, so I suggest bringing a smaller handbag. Also, it is best to start at the TOP of the museum and work your way down. There are a lot of exhibitions to see but floor 3 and 4 contain all the really famous pieces and your little legs (like mine) might get tired near the end!

The opening hours are 10:30 am until 5:30 pm and on Friday it is open until 8:00 pm. So get down there and take a look! Well worth it. Promise.
