The Met Breuer on upper Madison Avenue is in the former Whitney Museum building designed by Marcel Breuer. The space is big enough for an afternoon's visit. No need for a huge commitment of time. The current exhibition blends works of all eras and places...More

I'm so glad that the Whitney's old space can be used for some of the fascinating work that the fifth avenue Metropolitan Museum of Art does not have the opportunity to display. The exhibits can breathe a bit here, and a larger exhibit usually occupies...More

If you have a bad back or any other condition that necessitates taking a seat as you make your way through an exhibition, do not come here. This is an unfortunate decision by someone that for me totally undermined my experience of the exhibition, which...More

I was interested to see how that outside window looked from the inside. Small and compact museum. Beautiful. There's a great cafe in the ground floor/basement.

The Met Breuer is a great museum in the old Whitney space. It changes often enough so check before you go. The museum is small and is perfect if you just want a short visit.

Brutalist architecture outside, with an excellent temporary exhibit - Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body (1300–Now) - but only showing until July 22. Don't miss it! I really enjoyed this temporary exhibit with it's remarkable re-creation of the human form over the centuries. Very...More

The Met Breuer is the Mother Met's jewel box gallery devoted to contemporary art. Since that's not been the Met's historic strength, the Breuer is somewhat of a catch-up. So much depends on the exhibit on offer. We recently checked out the latest on human...More

Mixing the ancient and the very modern,the theme of this show is representations of the human body mostly in sculptures. The end result is strange with some works more shocking than beautiful.
