We enjoyed visiting this museum. We were, however, not prepared for the range of exhibits we encountered. Some of them were unusual. The layout of this museum is unique: you go up to the 6th floor and see those exhibits, then go to the 5th...More

This is a jewel of a museum. The curators always pick interesting and unusual objects to display and often install them in really creative ways with different colors of walls and murals. The definition of art here is broader than most museums. Forget the frames,...More

This is a quite small museum but I liked the exhibition. At the moment you‘ll find mostly textile designs/artworks.

After several museums in a very short weekend, we were happy to end our trip to NYC at the MAD - an outstanding selection of artists, a very manageable grouping, and a knowledgable staff. We really enjoyed the Green Book exhibit. Highly recommend. (And don’t...More

A word of warning: two floors are currently closed and new exhibitions won’t begin until early in March. At present there is one good exhibition, “Sanctuary”, by Derrick Adams, but his show on the Green Book (written for African-American travellers from the 1930s into the...More

this is a relatively small museum, for your money, and you should be aware of what you are getting into before you waste your time: 1)there is no permanent collection - what is on display is only the Current Exhibits. So, take a look at...More
