The MOMA is the museum of modern art in New York. It was inaugurated in 1929 and today it is the most important modern art museum in the world.
Although it is a fairly expensive museum, it is highly recommended to visit it. And if you don’t want to pay for your ticket, you can always take advantage of the fact that admission is free on Friday afternoons.
Works of art from the MOMA
At the Museum of Modern Art in New York we can find great works of modern art from all corners of the world.
Among the most outstanding works that we can find in this museum are:
- The Starry Night, by Vincent Van Gogh. Undoubtedly one of the most famous paintings by the Dutch painter.
- Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, by Pablo Picasso, a reference painting of cubism.
- The Persistence of Memory, by Salvador Dalí. It is also known as The Soft Clocks for representing a series of softened clocks.
In addition to these three great masterpieces of modern art, there are also other paintings by Andy Warhol, Henri Matisse, Kandinsky or Picasso himself. And also sculptures by Rodin, among others, drawings, photographs and other types of collections.
The visit to MOMA
The MOMA is quite a large museum and requires several hours to see it completely.
If you are not passionate about modern art, you can directly visit the 4th and 5th floors and see the three paintings that we have highlighted here.
It should also be noted that on Friday afternoons admission is free from 4:00 p.m.
As is logical, when something is free, quite large queues form an hour before to be able to access the museum, in addition to the crowds that will form inside.
Our recommendation is that you go at another time, but if you don’t prefer to pay the ticket, you can also avoid the queue by going at 6:00 p.m. At that time the queues have disappeared, there are much fewer people inside and you have 2 hours to see what you like most about the museum.
