It was spectacular and I also visited the Jews Museum where an Expo on Leonard Cohen was exhibited

I haven't visited them all, but I think the most important ones are the famous Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Cooper-Hewittt Smithsonian Design Museum. I do not recommend entering the MET, it is a museum quite classic for us Italians, which we are used to museums like the Vatican ones. I was disappointed because of this, it's "the usual museum", which the other museum exhibitions in NYC are not.
