We went here specifically to see the Lieber Show, as I have a fascination for her work. It was wonderful and there was free "tour" that is included in your admission, apparently, though the timing was such that I couldn't take advantage of it. The...More

I highly recommend this exhibition. Judith Lieber began her career in the Hanbacg industry in 1939 just after World War II began. In 2004 Judith designs her last bag the Peacock. Over 35 years she designed more than 3500 bags. She initially created wax sculptures...More

I was thinking to give this museum a 1 - TERRIBLE, but decided to make it 2. The 5 floor of this museum is waste of time and money ( and good money...), but the exhibition of Judith Lieber -2 floor changed my mind...

The museum certainly is on the smaller side but I was very pleased with how well the space was utilized! The museum had three exhibitions when I visited, and I especially liked the show on Counterculture fashion of the 1970s. The museum's location in Columbus...More

Dropped in on the way to a picnic in Central Park. Located on Columbus circle and was a delightful few hours engrossed in the styles of the 60s and bedazzled purses. Far out. Look forward to their next exhibit.

The exhibits focus. on design and fashion. The Judith Lieber exhibit ends on 8/6/17. It alone is worth the visit. The purses are spectacular mini sculptures done in with exquisite detail. The counter-couture exhibit of fashion and style of the 60s & 70s is full...More

Not too small, not too big, just right size. The exhibits change every few months, so you can go back again and see something entirely different. Clothing from the 1965-75 era was a blast from the past for again baby boomers. Best part was the...More

Very close to the shops at Columbus Circle. I came to MAD to see the Judith Lieber exhibit. There is also a nice museum shop there with a wonderful selection of beautiful jewelry and other items.

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop
