Gotta love a free museum.
MoMA MIA! Excellent museum! My visit was the most fun I’ve ever had in a museum. First off, go on FRIDAYS for free admission 4-8PM. There’s something about walking around in a museum you didn’t have to pay to get into that makes it more enjoyable.
Second, the art was phenomenal. Walking around I just felt inspired whichever way I turned. The museum has something for everyone to enjoy, as Danielle K. pointed out in her review. When I went, it lived up to the hype and was worth the wait to get in. Now, I can’t wait to go back in the fall when my college class requires me to go to the Met.
A day well spent!.
Visiting MoMA was one of my most highly anticipated trips when I came to NYC. Art has always been one of my passions and this museum didn’t disappoint. I was there last month when they had a new Van Gogh exhibit and I fell in love with his post-impressionist style of painting. It’s still fresh in my mind! (Sorry for lateness on this review.)
The only bad part about it was its size. When I left after two hours of wandering, I knew I still had exhibits I missed out on. However, it wasn’t a drag walking around a lot because they checked my coat and bag right when I walked in. The Met is a must-visit tourist attraction for NYC. GO THERE TODAY.
