Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Time Out says
UPDATE: The MoMA and MoMA PS1 is closed until further notice.
After three years of planning and construction—including a four-month closure this summer—the Museum of Modern Art has finally thrown open its doors to a shiny, reconfigured self, offering the public more MoMA to love (or at least to ponder) than ever. The massive expansion brings the institution’s total size to a whopping 708,000 square feet, 166,000 of which are dedicated to exhibition space. But the biggest deal is MoMA’s remix of its vaunted holdings: After decades of promoting promoting Picasso, Matisse, Pollock and other great white males, The Modern has dusted off works from women and artists of color that had been languishing in storage. Proclaiming a new woke MoMA, the museum has shifted to a multicultural reconsideration of 20th- and 21st-century art. But don't worry: You can still find works by fan favorites like Matisse.

The fact that the title of Donald Judd’s MoMA retrospective is last name only speaks to his enormous place in postwar art. Minimalism as we know it would have been inconceivable without him: He pioneered the form in the early 1960s with his signature...Contemporary art Until Saturday July 11 2020

Do yourself a favor and just GO! Some of the greatest pieces of work are located here in one place that is not so overwhelming that you can do it all in a few hours. Quick tip: this is one of the museums that participate in First Friday. So every first Friday of the month, admission is FREE! Just make sure you plan to wait in line to get in (only 15-20 min for me) but the lines move quickly and it will be crowded at the main and popular pieces.
This is my favorite museum to frequent in New York, even if it seemingly always packed with people. I don't care how cliche Monet's Water Lilies are, I love to stare at them. There's also a good amount of outdoor space to explore and sit quietly in the middle of the city during warmer months. The best advice I can give is if you're looking forward to a particular exhibit, go EARLY, both in the day as well as in the exhibit's life. If you wait till the last weekend, like I did with Picasso Sculptures, it just won't be an enjoyable experience.
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.
