Museums/Art Galleries in NYC: Advice needed

Jump to last reply

Hello all:

I am heading to NYC with my sister and niece (from London) next week, and have had very little time to plan – mea culpa!

I am overwhelmed, and asking for your assistance. Frankly, I could spend the entire week in the museums and art galleries, but also want to spend time with my family, who have other interests.

I can probably manage 3-4 half-days in the museums. Therefore, I have narrowed the selection down to the Metropolitan Museum, the MOMA and the Guggenheim. If you think I am missing a ‘must see’, please call it out!

I live in London, therefore have access to the British Museum, National Gallery, Victoria and Albert museums, which I visit regularly and know every corner. I have also visited museums and galleries all over Europe & elsewhere – Madrid, Barcelona, Rome, Istanbul, Paris, Cairo to name just a few. We are interested in history, art, design, fashion, decorative arts and photography.

I want to get the best out of the time I spend in these museums. Can you please advise if you think I am making the best choices?

Metropolitan Museum sections (probably too much?):
- Ancient Near Eastern Art (because of recent reading on the Golden Crescent)
- Asian Art (my BIL is Chinese, so my sister and niece will appreciate this)
- Egyptian Art (its a life-long passion)
- The Robert Lehman Collection (Sister and I will enjoy the decorative aspect)
- Photographs (I am fascinated by the capture of life in the recent past)

MOMA:
- Architecture and Design (Both Sister and I will enjoy this)
- Photography (Both Sister and I will enjoy this)

Guggenheim:
- The building itself
- Highlights of the collection
- The exhibition ‘Abstraction between the wars’

Many thanks in advance of your assistance.

Best regards.... Ger
