New York City: Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

New York City is full of museums and art galleries to visit, and I'm going to start by telling you about MoMA, aka the Museum of Modern Art, purely because it's the first one we visited.

MoMA is situated in Midtown Manhattan, and entry to the gallery costs $25 (we used our New York Pass). You can visit for free on Fridays between 17.30 and 21.00.

As mentioned, since it's the Museum of Modern Art, expect to see art that was created after 1863. We're talking Jackson Pollock, Picasso, Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, Matisse, Frida Kahlo and Roy Lichtenstein - to namedrop a few artists.

The Museum of Modern Art first opened in 1929 - and the museum recently reopened in October 2019 after four months of renovations.

We only spent about 90 minutes there, but comfortably explored the majority of the collection and temporary exhibitions at a reasonable pace. It's a substantial collection, but not an overwhelming one.

Handles by Haegue Yang (below) is one of the current temporary exhibitions, on until 12 April 2020. Definitely one not to miss if you're visiting MoMA - I loved the dazzling metallic shapes.

Are you a fan of modern art? x
