    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!

    El contenedor gana al contenido, hasta los cócteles están flojos, la zona de alrededor está muy bien para tomar unas copas y cenar,

    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.

    Lovely. Try the cafe on the roof. I had a toast and draught beer. After your tour buy an ice cream and seat on the green chairs outside the museum

    Buen museo pero en mi opinión está caro para lo que tiene (MoMA tiene precios más baratos y mejores exhibiciones) pero en general está interesante lo que tiene.

    This museum is a masterpiece. From scenic views in the stairwells and the balconies to the striking modern architecture by Piano the new Whitney is perfectly fit to present Americas history thru art

    Start at the top floor and use the outside steps to walk down from floor to floor.

    Oleg Zhoglo · July 22
  • Rory P.

    Start at the top and traverse down via the outside stairwells. Great views, fewer crowds and artwork on the decks

    Rory Parness · July 21
  • Meredith B.

    Incredible collection in a huge new space. Start on the top floor and work your way down to more recent decades. Use the outdoor staircases for beautiful views along the way.

  • Rebecca R.

    I would advise to begin your your from the top to bottom. They are open late so don't worry about getting there early in the day. Go in a little bit later to enjoy the dawn.

  • Eugene B.

    Hack the system: walk down from the roof to the 7th floor to avoid queues 😀
