    Buy a membership and skip the line. If you buy online, go straight to the membership desk by the door. The guards have no clue where to send you.

    Find the restrooms on floor 6. They’re behind a door with no handle built into the gallery wall. On your left will be a door to a staircase. Enter it and watch the sun set.

    Great art, with a post-drinks and location that is a real treat. Combined with a morning in the High Line, makes for a great weekend out.

    Love it. Do t be afraid of the long queue. It's fast. But they also have great opening hours, e.g. Saturday until 10pm.

    Loved the Archibald Motley exhibit and the overall design aesthetic of the Whitney. Lower floors are still being renovated, but the open ones weren't incredibly moving. Stay for the views!

    I honestly enjoyed the architecture more than the collection. The views of the city are stunning and there is a ton of outdoor seating for visitors to relax and take it all in!

    Beautiful museum, with decks above the High Line and a big selection of modern and comtemporary American art. Take the audio guide, it may help with the more conceptual pieces.

    Amazing views from the top. The kids loved the art inside so long as we let them set the pace. It's a Summer 2015 Blue Star Museum.
