Visiting New York City's Museum of Modern Art aka MoMA

Learn about New York City's Museum of Modern Art -- including how to avoid the hefty admission fee -- in this Howcast travel video.


The MoMA is one of the most popular museums in New York City. It’s always super crowded, it’s also the most expensive museum in New York City, but it’s wonderful. The MoMa cost twenty-five dollars per person to go. One thing that I think is the most important thing at the MoMA you can do is go early. The place gets packed. And it’s not fun seeing art when there’s a million people try to look at the same painting or exhibit as you, so you know the earlier you can get there, beat the lines, beat the rush, you’ll be a much happier person. The food at the MoMA is great, there’s a formal restaurant which is delicious. There’s also a more casual restaurant which that’s in the MoMA, so that’s good for if you want to get a quick bite. The food is still very gourmet, not too expensive, it’s communal seating. and uh I’m always surprised with how good it is. One thing a lot of people probably don’t realize about the MoMA is that you get free audio tours. So, upon price of admission, you get a free little headset that you can listen to as you look around at the different exhibits. If you really want to get out of paying the admission to go to the MoMA, on Friday’s from four to eight it’s free. So, again get there early, enjoy your time there, and the exhibits are incredible. I mean, you you never know what you’re going to find there, but it’s always something really important and and something that when you go home and you tell your friends everyone is always jealous that you’ve gone to see it.
