We had a great experience! One of the best Museum in the world. Many famous Paintings and artwork! Great location as it is in Central Park! Tips: -There is another entry in the parking lot. You don’t have to park to use this entrance. Therefore, go around and use this entry while there are hundreds of people standing on the line in front of the building. - Park will cost you around $13 per hour. It is not that bad considering the average parking cost in New York City!
Great art! You get to see paintings from some of the greatest in history which is super awesome! Tons to see multiple levels and various forms of art include installations, film and photography. There is even outdoor area. There are many seating areas and ample staff and security. The museum is huge with so much to explore. Definitely for the art lover and those interested to learn about art. I was skeptical to pay for entrance but it was WELL worth it, glad I did. Your pass can also be used at their other location as well. Enjoy!!
