  • I remember going to this building back in the day when it housed the Whitney Museum of Modern Art. I must say, Met Breuer made a great choice of space to display the modern, innovative, and quirky artwork. The fact that it's very well compartmentalized and relatively small, compared to the Metropolitan Museum, really allows you to enjoy and appreciate all the permanent and special exhibits in a more leisurely, much less touristy environment. If you are a local, or a frequent visitor to NYC, make sure to visit the museum every so often, as the special exhibits are changed often and are very well curated. Personally, I am not a fan and am rather sceptical of abstract art, for example, but some pieces of abstract art Met Breuer showcases don't leave me feeling impartial.
  • Nice open space easy to navigate. New York residents pay what you wish with ID. Unusual exhibitions in the modern style. Bookstore and cafe. Elevators.
