8. The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
Founded in 1929 as the first museum dedicated entirely to contemporary art, the MoMA is host to an impressive collection of modern artistic efforts. From painting and sculpture to film and architecture, the Museum of Modern Art’s diverse collection has something for everyone, including kids, which is probably why it attractions roughly 3 million visitors each year. They also have an amazing gift shop where you can buy beautiful souvenirs for yourself and your friends back home.
Alternative Idea: In SoHo, the New Museum offers visitors exhibits from emerging artists, with an emphasis on works by living artists. The galleries are frequently changed, so there is always something new to see.
