    Hands down one of my favorite museums in the city. Lovely space and the exhibitions are so well curated. I especially look forward to the videos that accompany what's on view.

    Cool place to check out, and always something worth seeing, but sometimes the exhibits inside don’t level up to the architecture of the building.

    A relatively small museum but the exhibits are often unique. Take the stairs; they offer a few surprises.

    Boasting views of Central Park and kooky, high-design décor, Robert's cafe inside MAD is the perfect place to grab lunch or have a post-sunset cocktail. Open Daily: 11:30am-3pm, 5:30pm-12am

    Lovely museum, perfect size for a 2-hour visit. The temporary exhibits manage to fascinate no matter the subject. Nice restaurant with views of Central Park on one of the upper floors.

    Walk around the museum first or go straight up to the 9th floor for Robert's, the museum's colorful restaurant that offers unbeatable views of Central Park right from your table.

    MAD is one of the most underrated museums in the city. When we look at everyday objects, most people rarely think of design. The exhibits at MAD will make you think, feel and look around once more

    Super chill super cool place. Never crowded. A welcome retreat from MoMA madness. And (this counts) the security guards are fucking cool.

    Very interesting collections, but with only two floors currently open (three total collections), it's not worth the admission.

    Ah: we have the fondest memories of holding a tweet-up here when Stephen Burks debuted "Are You a Hybrid?" in April 2011. If you want cutting edge, don't miss MAD.
