    The MoMA -Museum of Modern Art in New York- is the largest museum of modern and contemporary art in the city and one of the most recognized in the world. It is a must-see even for those who are not big fans of modern art.  But for lovers of modern and contemporary art, there’s no doubt about it! This museum is full of works by great masters that you will love to enjoy in person.

    If this is your first visit to MoMA -or even your first trip to New York- we don’t recommend you visit all levels. You’d spend all day there and we know that time is limited, especially on a first trip to New York.

    But the big news that will delight many is on the first floor. From now on, you will have free access to the temporary exhibitions from the street and without queuing up! The best way to have a first contact with the museum without spending a lot of money or investing too much time.

    Tourist passes that include MoMA admission are included in the FreeStyle Pass New York, with which you can skip the line and redeem your admission to the museum. If you choose to buy individual tickets, a tip: book them in advance so you don’t have to wait in line ;). Here is the link to book your tickets for MoMA

    Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA)Home » New York Museums » Museum of Modern Art in New York (MoMA)Estimated reading time: 4 minutesThe Museum of Modern Art in New York (in English Museum of Modern Art, although it is known worldwide as the MoMA in New York) is probably one of the best museums of modern art in the world. Located right next to Central Park, in the vicinity of Rockefeller Center, its collection has some of the most precious masterpieces by Van Gogh, Picasso, Dali, Warhol, …..


    Located at St 11 W 53rd St, New York, NY 10019, United States and with assets (as of 2011) of over 1.528 billion USD, it was founded as a private entity and academic institution, benefiting from numerous donations from its members and corporations, setting an example for other museums of its kind, expanding the boundaries of art to disciplines not admitted in other galleries.

    MOMA was founded in 1929 in an office apartment in downtown New York, as a trench to achieve greater acceptance of abstract art. In 1939 it moved to its own headquarters on 53rd Street, just off Fifth Avenue, whose façade is one of the icons of American modernism.

    Its creator, Yoshio Taniguchi, author of several museums in Japan, explicitly discarded the idea of creating a work for astonishment, like those of Frank Gehry or Santiago Calatrava. -A museum is a cup of tea,» explained the Japanese, to indicate that what matters, what has the leading role, is the content and not the building. The new MOMA is a low-intensity building, respectful of the pre-existing and with very large abstract spaces that stand out and do not compete with the works. [2]


    MoMA’s Library includes approximately 300,000 books and exhibition catalogs, more than 1,000 periodical titles, and over 40,000 files of ephemera on individual artists and groups. The archives contain primary source material related to the history of modern and contemporary art.

    Considered by many to be the finest collection of modern Western masterpieces in the world, MoMA’s holdings include more than 150,000 individual pieces, plus approximately 22,000 films and 4 million photographic films. (Access to the film photo collection ended in 2002, and the collection was mothballed in a vault in Hamlin, Pennsylvania.

    MoMA developed a world-renowned fine art photography collection under Edward Steichen and then under Steichen’s successor, John Szarkowski, which included photos by Todd Webb. The department was founded by Beaumont Newhall in 1940. Under Szarkowski, it focused on a more modernist approach to the medium, one that emphasized documentary images and orthodox darkroom techniques.
