Museum of Modern Art

Description

The Museum of Modern Art is located in midtown Manhattan. A handicapped assist button allows easy access from either 53rd or 54th Streets.  Everything in the building is handicapped accessible, including the sculpture garden.

Escalators and large elevators get you to each of the museums six floors. Galleries are spacious, viewing is easy.  Benches for resting are located near the escalators on each floor. 

Multi-stall, handicapped accessible bathrooms are located on every floor next to a water fountain.  Access is easy, but the doors are heavy. 

A single-user/family restroom is located on the fifth floor.

The museum has three eating establishments. 

If you are driving, parking probably has to be in one of the private garages nearby.

The Museum of Modern Art is a New York Institution. An appointment close by afforded me some time to stop by for a look at the Magritte exhibit and to view the museum through Destination Accessible eyes. The exhibit is wonderful and so is the accessibility in the Museum.


A handicapped assist button allows easy access from either 53rd or 54th Streets. Once inside, everything in the building is handicapped accessible, including the sculpture garden. Escalators and large elevators get you to all of the museums six floors.


Galleries are spacious, viewing is easy. Benches for resting are located near the escalators on each floor.


Multi-stall, handicapped accessible bathrooms are located on every floor next to a water fountain. Access is easy, but note that the doors are heavy. A single-user/family restroom is located on the fifth floor.


The museum has three different eating establishments.  I had a tasty lunch in the Terrace, overlooking the sculpture garden.


I love museum shops. If you do too, the ones at MoMA should not be missed. They offer a wonderful array of items. MoMA Books, carries a huge selection.


If you are driving, parking probably has to be in one of the private garages nearby.


As always, we at Destination Accessibleurge you to check a venue’s website, www.MoMA.org, when planning a visit to “know before you go.”
