MoMA’s Rain Room hours extended to midnight on Sunday
You might just be able to get into the Rain Room—or you may have to wait that much longer—thanks to extended hours on its last day.

The countdown has begun: MoMA's rabidly popular Rain Room is closing this Sunday, July 28. Accordingly, Instagram-induced hype and FOMO-driven panic have reached peak levels: The New York Times wrote about nine-hour–plus wait times, and that was last week.
As Gothamist first reported, the immersive art piece will be extending its hours until midnight on its final day—though we have a feeling the line will close well before then. Hey, at least waiting outside for so long is a good opportunity to dig in to your summer reading and work on your tan! It's almost like going to the beach—with a ten-minute cultural pit stop slapped on.
The rainsanity has us wondering (and slightly concerned): Who are the folks standing around—sometimes for longer than the average workday—in order to get in to the exhibition? Are they all tourists? Do they have jobs? Did they do this for the cronut, too? Stay tuned for more.
