30 Must-See Museums: New York

MOMA

The Museum of Modern Art recently received a facelift by Yoshio Taniguchi, creating more light and bigger rooms.

Museum of Modern Art
Founded in 1929, the Museum of Modern Art was the first museum ever to be devoted exclusively to modern art. MOMA is home to the world’s finest collection of works from the late 19th century to the present: 3,500 paintings and sculptures, 6,000 drawings, 3,000 objects tracing the history of modern design, 4,000 posters, 23,000 films and videos and more than 25,000 photographs. If the numbers don’t astound you, catching just a glimmer of this treasure trove will.

Highlights:
Monet’s “Water Lilies,” Matisse’s “Dance” (1), Cézanne’s “The Bathers” and Picasso’s “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,” plus photos by Man Ray, Walker Evans and Ansel Adams.

Duly Noted:
A recent facelift by Yoshio Taniguchi created more light and bigger rooms and enlarged the much-loved Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.
