A New York fixture housing an amazing array of sculptures, paintings, and photography by celebrated modern artists, MoMA’s vast space is considered to be one of the best modern art museums in the world. With an astounding collection encompassing impressionists like Cézanne, Monet, and Van Gogh, cubists like Picasso, surrealists like Dalí, abstract expressionists like Jackson Pollack, pop artists like Andy Warhol and Piet Mondrian, and so many more, even repeat visitors still feel like neophytes. The sculpture garden, introduced by Rodin’s Monument to Balzac, is a noteworthy stroll to take. Another more conceptual garden introduces you to a soaring 110-foot atrium aglow with light, in which stands Barnett Newman’s Broken Obelisk. A tour is included in the cost of admission or for just $10 you can see a masterpiece film here. Founded in 1935, their movie collection has amassed to 22,000 films and four million film stills — “the strongest international film collection in the United States,” according to their website. Sample screenings include Otto Preminger’s Bonjour Tristesse, Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Dreamers, and Fritz Lang’s You Only Live Once.
