Discover MoMA, one of NYC's top museums and the first museum devoted to modern art through modern and contemporary art exhibitions addressing a wide range of subject matter, mediums and time periods.
Founded in 1929, The Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan was the first museum devoted to the modern era. From an initial gift of eight prints and one drawing, the Museum of Modern Art's collection has grown to include over 150,000 paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural models and drawings, and design objects. This unparalleled collection offers a comprehensive, panoramic overview of modern and contemporary art from the innovative European painting and sculpture of the 1880s to today's film, design and performance art.
The Museum maintains an active schedule of modern and contemporary art exhibitions addressing a wide range of subject matter, mediums and time periods, highlighting significant developments in the visual arts and new interpretations of major artists and art historical movements. Works of art from its collection are displayed in rotating installations so that the public may regularly expect to find new works on display.
Ongoing programs of classic and contemporary films range from retrospectives and historical surveys to introductions of the work of independent and experimental film as well as video makers. Visitors also enjoy access to a bookstore offering an assortment of publications and reproductions, and a design store offering objects related to modern and contemporary art and design.
