Many visitors never leave Manhattan, and therefore miss excellent museums in Brooklyn, the Bronx, and MOMA PS1 in Long Island City. PS1, an extension of the Museum of Modern Art, has interesting large scale exhibits, a quirky brick building (former elementary school with separate entrances for boys and girls), and a non-Manhattan neighborhood which is easily accessible by subway or...

This facility was undergoing new installations so the exhibits were somewhat sparse. Thankfully the staff mentioned this to us and suggested one half the cost of entry. The few rooms that did have exhibits were questionable. Not a great adventure when it's mostly empty.

I was more impressed with the building than the actual art in the exhibit we saw, but that's ok. I will say the heat works VERY WELL in that old school house. HAHA i went in wearing multiple layers and by the end I was wearing only a tshirt and jeans. I look forward to returning to see their latest... More

One of the best museums in NY. I went there early January and Mark Leckey's work is currently on exhibit. I like how they made different sections of the museum like a maze with secret passages into the creative mind of Mark Leckey. Worth visiting. Check out their website so you can see the current exhibits before visiting.

Amazing space - such a great job of repurposing an old school, the gallery is almost as beautiful as the work it displays. We enjoyed a great show and the bookshop was also worth the visit - both the store within the gallery and the magazine shop too. Can't wait to visit again!

Warm Up used to be a fun thing to do on a saturday afternoon in summer, not always my music but always a good mood. And it's a good way to bring people to a museum. Over the years, price for admission and drinks kept going up. The worst part was that at every corner inside and outside the buidling... More

The exhibits currently on display (November 2016) did not hold much interest for me or anyone in my party of 5. The James Turrell open sky room is pretty cool, but you can look at the sky from anywhere. Maybe by the time you read this review they'll have some new and better exhibits, but for now, I'd find something... More

Thought it lacked a bit of interesting art but nice space being under used and needs work throughout
