The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is an art museum in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, on 53rd Street, between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. It has been important in developing and collecting modernist art, and is often identified as the most influential museum of modern art in the world.  The museum's collection offers an overview of modern and contemporary art, including works of architecture and design, drawings, painting, sculpture, photography, prints, illustrated books and artist's books, film, and electronic media. MoMA's library and archives hold over 300,000 books, artist books, and periodicals, as well as individual files on more than 70,000 artists. The archives contain primary source material related to the history of modern and contemporary art. It also houses a restaurant, The Modern, run by Alsace-born chef Gabriel Kreuther (from Wikipedia)

If only we could go to MoMA, stay there for ... a few days (!) and admire its collections! Wouldn't that be wonderful? Lucky those people who live nearby, and those who can still afford to travel! If you are neither, don' t worry! There is the museum' s site which you can visit and get an idea, and there are also some nice (and strange!) Youtube videos of artists´ works displayed there, like the one that follows:
