Went for the Sonic Arcade: Shaping Space with Sound exhibition in October 2017. Very high quality exhibition, well curated, lots of interactivity. Don't expect to be curled; MAD requires much of the visitor. If you're a modern art buff with a technical interest, MAD will...More

Everything revolved around sound and "art" but I could not appreciate, or observe art. I could only come to consider as "nice" if I thought of it from a tech perspective. And honestly, I was thinking about techology when I decided to visit. I am...More

A few very nice pieces, I was hooked by the psychedelic sound generator. But the rest was below what I expected, with no other context than "this is SJW artwork". I was expecting more. Two floors were close at the time of my visit though.

Not a big museum, but very inspiring. We visited all exhibition floors - counter-couture (US fashion of the 60's), and the beautiful bags of Judith Leiber (both exhibitions are wonderful and fascinating). An hour of beauty in the heart of NY, before we crossed the...More

I am always happy to visit this museum. It is the perfect size to take in all the exhibits in one visit and not get tired. Very family friendly. The curatorial selection is broad, interesting and unexpected. The restaurant on the 9th floor is the...More

Absolutely loved the fashion exhibition with the hippie & crochet collections. Really well done. The Judith Lieber exhibition was also one of my favourites.

This is a great museum with multiple interesting exhibits often. Not sure why many more people are not aware of it.
