An Outstanding Display of Modern Masterpieces

The Museum of Modern Art has a remarkable collection of modern art that includes paintings, sculpture, photography, and architectural models. The museum offers a thorough presentation of the ideals and trends in art from the late 19th century through today.

This museum has everything from classic works by artists like Monet, Rodin, Dali, Warhol, and Picasso to very recent art.

You don’t have to have a degree in art history to appreciate and enjoy this museum. There is a nice balance of famous and recognizable art, such as Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, as well as innovative contemporary works.

The more well-known art is on the fourth and fifth floors, so if that is what you want to see the most, then start at the top and work your way down. The more contemporary works are located on the lower floors.
