    Has more modern art and definitely worth it

    Not worth the entrance fee. There is not much art on display and much is political protest rather than art. If you like modern art, go to the Guggenheim or MoMA instead.

    It’s nice, and I like it more as an experience, but wouldn’t go there as often as to the Metropolitan Museum or MOMA.

    I would spend at most a couple of hours here. Relatively small collection. But the rooftop on the 8th floor at dusk is spectacular and recommended just for the views of One WTC and Empire State.

    The best art institution in the world. I swear Whitney is.

    Everything about this space is beautiful and the exhibits are incredible. Must get a glass of rosé and sit outside on the balcony of the café. The views are gorgeous!

    Strong content, rooting to American multi-facet cultural history. Start from the 8th floor for smooth visiting

    The nicest staff of any museum I've ever been to. Don't hesitate to ask questions or for help with something.

    Admission price is so high, but I spent a nice afternoon looking around.
  • Viviana M.
    The museum was awesome, I love that you can go in and out which is perfect for a nice day. I also wanted to buy everything in the gift shop!

    A+! The New Whitney is MUCH more accessible and easier to navigate than the city’s other famous museums like the Met. I’m a big fan. If you’re on a budget: there’s free admission on Friday nights

    Free admission for L’Oreal employees. Beside the high line. Definitely recommend checking it out if you’re in the area

    One of those places where you get to look at all black, or all white, canvases. Not art.

    The pieces in this museum make you think. Unlike some other modern art museums which aren't as thought provoking. Free on Friday nights. Low key some of the best views of NYC

    Great view. Don't understand why many like the building itself though. Their setup of Calder's Hypermobility was terrible (especially compared to how Tate did it) + arrogant service in the cafe.

    As a New Yorker not a tourist,I've been here many times,but often felt disappointed when I left.The collections never make me feel inspired as much as the Met or Moma
