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

    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.

    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

    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.
