RECOMMENDED: Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

After a two-year redesign by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi, MoMA reopened in 2004 with almost double the space to display some of the most impressive artworks from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Outside, the Philip Johnson–designed Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, which houses works by Calder, Rodin and Moore, overlooks the Modern, a sleek high-end restaurant and bar run by superstar restaurateur Danny Meyer. The Museum of Modern Art has a great deal of free family programming for all ages.

Not gonna lie, I've visited MoMA more than any other museum in NYC. They have the exhibitions that are most interesting to me, generally. I also take advantage of the free admission Friday evenings too. Amazing collection of modern art, I personally love the collection of surrealist art they have. Joseph Cornell's boxes are a favorite. The 4 stars are because this place can and will get insanely crowded and you either have to accept that or try and plan to go at a less crazy time.
