Amazing exhibit on feminist issues. Also enjoyed an exhibit on the color blue which partnered with a piece at the New Museum.

I went there just because I was the area, with no expectations at all. It is an amazing art museum - pay as you wnat - with a particular centre for feminist art which was the best surprise on my trip to New York.

The Middle East antiquities collection is great and well presented, but also nice is the collection of chairs. The Schenck house gives a nice impression about the living in the 17th century.

We went in the week rather than a Saturday and even then we could only book a slot some 2 hours later. We went to other exhibits first then enjoyed the snack bar but there is a classy restaurant too. Get there when it opens... More
