Visiting the Museum of Modern Art
The Museum of Modern Art is open Wednesdays through Mondays (closed on Tuesdays) every day except for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. The museum is located in the heart of midtown and easily accessible via the city’s subway and bus system. Discounted parking is available with a museum validation at a nearby parking lot. Hours vary, but the museum is open late at least one night a week.
Admission to the MOMA for Children under 16 years of age are admitted free, as are museum members.
Facilities at the museum include three restaurants: Café 2 is an Italian-style, casual eatery, featuring homemade pastas, panini, soups, salads, and desserts. Orders are taken at a service counter and the food is brought to your table. Terrace 5 is a full-service restaurant overlooking the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller sculpture garden and the city beyond.
The Modern is a fine-dining restaurant, also overlooking the sculpture garden. This restaurant has its own entrance and operates independent of museum hours.
The MOMA gift shop is a fascinating emporium of cards, prints, jewelry, giftware, replicas of museum sculptures, and over 2000 book titles. Across the street from the museum is the MOMA design store, a stylish store, filled with museum-inspired furniture, lighting, and other household items.
Location: at 11 W. 53rd Street, New York City, New York
