Good collection. Nice gift shop and great customer service in general. Near Chinatown. But I was a bit disappointed that I got there by 10 am and there were no tickets left for the Kusama room.

I had an enhanced membership with a donation monthly. That has ended. There service is members is horrible. They did not even return a email when I had a legitimate issue. Nice gallery but horrible service for members.

It depends on what interests you and if you take one of the guided tours. I would say the minimum would be 2 hours, yet it would be very easy to spend 3+ hours there.
