This famous museum houses more than two million works of art from around the world. And while it may take a lifetime to fully appreciate its vast collections, this is one heck of a way to spend an afternoon. Bonus: Your ticket includes same-day admittance to The Cloisters.
Most people come to a museum for the art inside. And with masterpieces on par with the Louvre, it doesn't disappoint. But the building alone is worth the trip. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, it is one of the world's most unusual feats of architecture.
The MoMA (as it's known by locals) is the most influential modern art museum in the world. Housing arguably the best collection of contemporary Western masterpieces, it is an inspiring way to lose yourself for an afternoon—or an entire day.
