    PS1 Summer Saturday Warmup Concerts are not to be missed! Go early (before 5PM) to explore the museum, stay for drinks and dancing in the sculpture garden. Be warned: everything is cash only!

    More of the variety of exhibitions are seen here through a year. Classroom size collection halls are flexibly accessible and outside events are fun. Check the calendar and decide what you want!

    Designed to bring together artists and audiences, the Contemporary Art Center showcases modern art that you wouldn't find anywhere else in a unique space that Museum Mile certainly can't offer.

    If off-kilter art is your thing, you are at home in the hallways of works from both emerging and famed artists. Head over for Sunday Sessions for weekly servings of film, performance, and discussion.

    Warm up: Nice venue, good crowd, but soundsystem is hugely underpowered and misplaced. Upgrade to a full funktion one, 4 points, move DJ booth down and facing the staircase, then you'll have a party.

    Originally built in 1893 as the First Ward School, it could hold up to 1,000 students in its more than 30 rooms. Even after being renamed, closed and then reopened, the public-school theme remains. Read more

    MoMA's sister museum is the mecca for installation art & a truly unique experience. A must see is James Turrell "Meeting"- a magical room on the top floor. Don't miss PS1's Saturday Sessions. —Landon

    Must do: James Turrell "Meeting" room 3rd floor. Opens at 3pm depending on weather but sometimes earlier. Lay on the floor for the best view. Daydream away!

    Only 3 stops away from Grand Central and totally worth the trip. Always innovative, well-laid out and the only classroom-themed cafe I've seen!

    Don't miss the Pipilotti Rist video in the floor of the lobby (it's small but fantastic) and James Turrell's "Meeting" on the 3rd floor, there are few greater "rooms" in the world.

    Suggested admission and free with MOMA ticket. This place is fun to explore. Lots of off the wall exhibits. Some leave you saying huh??? But none the less a nice way to spend the day.

    Summer party series are the business (albeit expensive). Featured artists also run the gamut of popular to obscure which is great.

    First time here: pieces were hit-or-miss, I assume different works would change my opinion. I did enjoy walking around a true "old school" building.

    Great tour guides - they know their stuff but also down to earth and willing to admit how bizarre some of the "art" is...

    Courtyard installations are generally great. Museum layout itself not conducive to viewing art.

    Off the beaten path, this branch of MoMA often exhibits larger than life artwork. Take the subway. Its a short walk from the station.

    This is the spot to check out large scale experimental art. The place is an old public school that was converted to an exhibit space for contemporary art.
