I went there in June to see a photography exhibition and I thought it was fantastic. The music in the background, the link between photos and videos, books in the middle of the big halls... It was very good, and really made to be interesting. I really recommend to go. Also, the whole area around is quite nice to see! So go and have a wander!

I first went online and thought that their current exhibits were a bit boring. So we stuck with just the gift store and snack venue. They had some interesting items, including some places with Marc Chagall on them and many fine candlesticks. It was worth going in just for that. They have a mini lunch area, with some tasty food and beverages and that tied us over till dinner.

We enjoyed a docent tour of the MOMA exhibit. The building is itself is worth the visit. There were two other small exhibits which again were well-done.

What a shame that this amazing building - which so creatively melds new and old both in materials and construction - houses such a dull collection. Once on the inside (for $12), the most fascinating part of the place was the shop ...
