If you’re ever in NYC over a Friday and you find yourself with some open time in the evening, you can head to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) for UNIQLO Free Friday nights from 4:00pm – 8:00pm. You can’t buy tickets in advance so you have to go there and get in line – but I promise-even if it looks monstrous-the line moves pretty quickly once the doors open (or you can just get there a little later and miss the opening “rush”)
It’s terrific to be able to go and wander through the different galleries – Or you can just walk around inside the building and admire the architecture. You can even get a free headset (or download an app to your smartphone) if you’d like to hear excerpts about some of the pieces that you’re looking at. And because it’s all free,(usual cost is $25), you don’t have to feel guilty if you don’t have a lot of time to spare and just want a brief visit.
11 West 53rd Street
New York, NY
Note: There is another location in Queens
Tip: If you can’t get to the museum on Friday evening, you can go to the MOMA design/gift store directly across the street anytime for free (44 West 53rd Street) It’s a great place to browse and find jewelry, furniture, accessories and gifts that reflect pieces from the museum.
