    Nice roof!
  • Leah A.
    Do not recommend. Some of the exhibits were extremely obscene and made me feel very uncomfortable. It's safe to say "I did not get it." The staff was also not at all friendly, helpful, or informative.

    Nice views over lower Manhattan from the sky room at the top. The bookshop is small but well curated.

    Expensive but the art is great. Won't take too long to get through

    There was a line when I went on Thursday for the pay as you wish, but it moved very quickly. The pixel forest is beautiful !

    The building is a little too small and it gets really crowded, but the pixel forest was awesome. I loved the roof top view too!

    If there's a line for tickets, buy online and skip to the front to go straight in. The exhibits are always super modern. The top floor has a nice view of the financial district skyline.

    This contemporary art museum on Bowery is hard to miss with its stunning architecture and a rotation of diverse exhibitions. The artistic community of NoLIta radiates from here.

    it's hard to find complex art, sometimes weird, beautiful and meaningful architecture and thoughtful interior design in one just space!

    This museum is solid fun. Always work from the top down. Many of you if a certain age will miss the gritty Bowery but enjoy that at a museum is here and not William Sonoma.

    It has a lot of potential, but 2 of the 4 floors were occupied by an artist I hated, so I feel it was not worth the admission's price.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    Nothing on show before mid-oct... Poor coffee room with rude waiter... U get charged $4 to see a few pieces by artist Chris Burden, when you can see much more for free in London. New Museum indeed??

    A short walk down the Bowery, this aluminum landmark functions as a stack of mismatched galleries and acts as a local beacon for avant-garde lovers and the culturally curious alike.

    This was one of the most disappointing art shows I've seen in some time. Art is not assemblages and average photography about sex, politics and self hatred in order to make socially commentary.
