MoMa Gallery New York van Gogh art

MoMa for Modern Art Lovers

If you love modern art, you need to visit the museum that has the world’s best collection of modern and contemporary art. Opened in 1929, their ever-growing collection has almost 200 000 pieces of work.

Housed in a beautiful, tranquil space in mid-town Manhattan, I recommend spending a few hours admiring the incredible collection, then have lunch on the outdoor terrace before buying a few souvenirs and gifts at the funky store on your way out.

Here’s a small snapshot of some of the masterpieces you’ll find displayed over a few floors:

The strangest thing about visiting New York for the first is how familiar it feels. Which seems strange until you realise it’s because every taxi, every policeman, every neighbourhood is something you’ve seen in a million movies and they look exactly the same in real life.
