Sure, you could spend a day getting lost in the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)'s permanent exhibits, which showcase all manner of priceless pieces from renowned artists. But just as essential are this museum’s other elements, including an attached cinema that combines art-house fare and more accessible offerings, top-notch gift shop MoMA Design Store, a sculpture garden with works by Picasso and Rodin, and the Modern, a high-end restaurant and bar run by Danny Meyer.
