Probably my favorite in the museum category of NYC. They have a meandering layout that you can walk through... although some of our party had trouble finding specific locations or areas so it may be best to just stroll through. It takes about 3 hours to get through the exhibits. Even the free, public exhibits are amazing! Some fun and interactive exhibits, art installations that make you feel both large and small. It’s a great place.
Six stories high featuring modern art. Some of the “artworks” though might require more understanding of the artists’ conveyance of their message. There is definitely something for everyone to appreciate and enjoy. The place can be busy but there are nice quiet areas overlooking nice skylines to sit back and relax. Throw in the usual coffee shop and store - have fun!
