Fodor's Review

The museum houses choice collections of pre-Columbian, American Indian, and Spanish colonial art, as well as the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Latin American Art—the nation's largest such facility, with more than 2,500 folk-art objects, and an extensive collection of Asian art, with the more than 70 pieces featured in its own wing. Past exhibitions have included works by Impressionists, lacquer over wood and other art by Japanese artist Shibata Zeshin, and lithographs by 20th-century Mexican master David Siquerios. One permanent painting to consider viewing is Passion Flowers with Three Hummingbirds, an 1875 piece by Martin Johnson Heade depicting a tropical forest in Brazil; it is located on the third floor in the east tower.
