    The art 😏

  • TK ..

    The building is as cool as the art it houses, and as the neighborhood it calls home. A great space to get away from the racket of the Lower East Side for an hour or so. The Sky Deck is a must-see.

    Privately funded but still does not explain the lack of quality exhibits. Purely for SANAA fans.

  • Hian H.

    Boring pathetic collection. Uninspired docent tours. Expensive admission. Just admire the building from the outside.

    Thursday nights are pay what you want, so basically you can get in for a couple of bucks OR if you have no shame, FREE!! You can see everything here in less than an hour. Don't do the full admission.

    Chris Cookson · July 16
  • Mélanie V.

    Pay what you wish 7-9pm Thursday

  • Ina L.

    Always a visit in the afternoon. Not too overwhelmingly big and rich but always cool exhibitions

    Ina Li · June 23

    top floor is a wonderful surprise

    Anthony · June 12
  • Gabriel R.

    Go at the end of the day and enjoy beautiful sunset and the transition of NYC at dusk

  • Miguel d.

    No permanent collection but that means everything is subject to rotation. A little more daring than other contemporary institutions. A scenic rooftop to boot.

    Don't park your bike here. It will be gutted, ravaged, and left to die

    Eliza Chang · April 12
  • Daniele C.

    One of my favorite buildings in New York. Make sure to check out the view from the terrace and the bookstore. P.S. I miss the "HELL YES!" sign...

    Daniele Codega · April 11
  • Koji K.

    skyroom is awesome

    Koji Kno · April 10
  • Diana G.

    If you don't like contemporary art or "don't get it" there is still an awesome book selection in the first floor for you to learn so when you do come in, you can appreciate everything a little better.

    Diana Galvis · April 8
  • Jack H.

    This is my favorite art museum in NYC--they always show really extraordinary and eclectic modern works.

    Jack Holmes · April 7
  • Angela N.

    Are the works avant garde or just not so good. Best for donation based evenings in Thursday or simply save the $2 minimum for a happy hour instead.

    Angela N. · March 31
  • Yuki

    Such a cool building. One of the first museums with their own incubator for designers and artists

    Yuki · March 20
  • Claudia F.

    The 3D googles are a wild experience

    Claudia Frye · February 28
  • John T.

    Make sure you go on a day that all the floors are open.

    John Trigonis · February 22
  • Sunny C.

    Some pretty trippy stuff in here, but amusing and delves into modernity

    Sunny Chen · February 17
  • Gabriel H.

    Loved the Chris Ofili exhibit

    Gabriel Hayes · January 31
  • Laurindo A.

    Museu de arte comtemporanea que é basicamente de uma exposição temporária. Entrada cara para o que oferece. Veja o edifício do outro lado da rua

    UK-born, Trinidad-based artist Chris Ofili presents 'Night and Day'. 29 October 2014 through 1 February 2015. Recall that he outraged Mayor R. Giuliani’s moral & political sensitivities in 1999.

    Rhonda D-c · October 26, 2014
  • Juliana C.

    "Here and Elsewhere" It's a must see. Provocative and intense.

    Juliana Camargo · September 24, 2014
  • Amy Z.

    Do a little advance reading ahead of time to make the most of your visit.

    Amy Ziff · September 7, 2014
  • Peter L.

    If visiting for the architecture, make sure to come Saturday or Sunday when the top floor is open.

    They always have unique and fun exhibits. Last time I was here, I slid down a few floors on a giant slide.

    Kelsey Lee · June 22, 2014

    Shows digital art on a semi-regular basis, often through their partnership w/ Also: Upcoming NEW INC art+tech incubator, views from the Sky Room.

    Marius Watz · May 16, 2014
  • Adna G.

    Um dos melhores museus de Arte Contemporânea que já fui.

    Adna Gomes Pereira · May 15, 2014
  • Caryn C.

    Student discount makes it worth here. However definitely come here on Thursdays when you pay what you want. Suggested is 2$

    Caryn Chen · April 13, 2014
  • Deniz

    Great architecture. Worth the visit, especially when there's live avantgarde jazz music going on, and you're digging into the bookstore or having your coffee at the same time.

    Deniz · March 30, 2014

    The shiny, silver architectural addition to the Bowery is dedicated to showcasing contemporary art & acts as an incubator for adventurous ideas birthed by domestic and international emerging artists.

    Admission is free for the duration of the Pawel Arthamer show if you bring a coat to donate to the Bowery Mission.

    Don't skip the binoculars for Chris Burden's spectacle on the 2nd floor!

    Krista Saunders · January 10, 2014
  • Krowka(Peng ) P.

    See Yoshitomo Nara

    Try to go when the museum will be less crowded. There's an intimacy to the work when the room is silent.

    Ren Tarpley · January 3, 2014
  • Varun S.

    Great spot for a casual business meeting. Sit at the cafe on the ground floor and look at some weird art while you close your latest M&A deal.

    Ed Fornieles' benefit/party/performance/film for Rhizome made for an incredible night out. He drew guests out of our inhibitions for good & just the right amount of evil. Best bang for buck ever!!

    To coincide with the opening of its Chris Burden exhibition earlier this month, New York's New Museum unveiled a new eatery, Hester Street Cafe, operated by its neighbour, Hester Street Fair. Read more

    Я бы порекомендовала сходить в четверг за 2$. Инсталляции слабые.

    A must in #NYC

    ana otero · October 9, 2013
  • Holly H.

    Check out Ann Hirsh's iPad app, Twelve. Her art, (like Playground) takes a richly nuanced digital native view of what most of us would immediately label pedophilloic predation. But she won't let you.
