A wonderful museum full of amazing pieces art, but not overwhelming in size. I came speficially to see Judy Chicago's "The Dinner Party", now permanently on view here. more »
I came from the city on the subway, which leaves you right off at the museum. It was not hard at all. The museum took all day. There is a lot to look at. There was an exhibit on Pierre Cardin, which costs a few dollars extra. Which was huge. And, right now they are changing exhibits. So, one floor was closed. But, still so much stuff. They sell food, if you want to take a break. Also, tables and chairs outside. Very nice. Bring comfortable shoes.Enjoy!
