“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” ― Bill Bryson

Visiting the MoMa in New York City


The Museum of Modern Art in New York City is a global institution, with a collection broad enough to sustain a fine arts degree. If you’ve ever wandered through a European museum and wondered where some of the world’s most iconic paintings actually are, the answer tends to be MoMa.


The MoMa Collection Highlights

There are so many incredible artworks on display at the MoMa. If you have days to spare, you might just get through them all. But if you're short on time and keen to see some of the world's most well-known modern art pieces, be sure to take at looks at these favourites:

  • Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans

  • Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night

  • Monet’s Water Lilies

  • Dali’s The Persistence of Memory

  • Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon

  • Kahlo’s Self-Portrait with Cropped Hair

  • Kazimir Malevich’s White on White

  • Bacon’s Painting 1946

  • Max Ernst’s Two Children Are Threatened by a Nightingale


Tips for Your Visit

  • To navigate your way through the 150,000 or so pieces on display, put together a hit list before you go and plot out your path using the website’s catalogue as the museum covers six enormous floors.
  • Grab your tickets online to avoid the queues, which tend to bank up around opening time.
