Located in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, MoMA welcomes approximately two and a half million visitors a year. Considered by many to have the best collections of modern art, MoMA features masterpieces such as Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Pablo Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, Salvador Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory, and Claude Monet’s Water Lilies.

In addition to paintings, sculpture, and graphic art, the museum was one of the first in the United States to include industrial design, architecture, photography, and motion pictures in its collection.

MoMA is one of the largest museums of modern and contemporary art and therefore, you will need at least two hours to see the whole museum (at a fast pace). If you don’t have enough time or if contemporary art is not what you are most interested in, then we recommend that you at least visit the 4th and 5th floors, where you will find some of the most famous paintings in history.

The collection currently contains nearly 200,000 works of art. MoMA’s library includes approximately 300,000 books and exhibition catalogs, more than 1,000 magazine titles, and more than 40,000 records on individual artists and groups. The archives contain primary material relating to the history of modern and contemporary art.

• The Starry Night – Vincent van Gogh
• The Sleeping Gypsy – Henri Rousseau
• I and the Village – Marc Chagall

• Les Demoiselles d’Avignon – Pablo Picasso
