    ALWAYS start on the second floor (FL 2). The entire floor is a nice simple tutorial, with examples, of the culture, context, technique, symbolism, and history related to all the art you will see.

    Perhaps one of my favorite places in NYC. I prefer when they don’t have a DJ and I’m able to soak in the art and enjoy the meditation room.

    The Friday lounge is exceptionally alluring. Happy Hour 6-7pm with a tour. The food wasn't all that bad. The duck braised momo is a must try to expedience nepalese food.

    I did the mindful meditation on Wednesday which was just worth coming to. The museum this summer is really small and targeted towards Tibetan Buddhism.

    Friday openings draw a swanky high art crowd; as long as you don't need silence to appreciate a painting you get the best of both worlds: an interesting crowd and interesting exhibits.

    Their Friday nights are the time to visit. I learned that fear is flamed by ignorance and is conquered through wisdom as symbolized by a gold statue with many arms each holding a different utensil.
