Museum of Modern Art
Located on 53rd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, surrounded by the towers of Midtown Manhattan, the Museum of Modern Art is one of New York’s, and the world’s, cultural treasures. Since the museum was founded in 1929, it has been a leader in introducing audiences to outstanding works of modern and contemporary art and today houses one of the world’s foremost collections of such works. The building underwent a significant renovation in 2006, by architect Yoshio Taniguchi, which opened the 630,000 square feet of galleries to light that pours in from the peaceful sculpture garden. Whether you want to get lost in quiet contemplation gazing at Matisse’s water lilies or be challenged by thought-provoking works by the leading artists today, you’ll find what you are looking for in the galleries of MoMA.
