3 Museums to visit when in New York

Possibly, New York is the city that has more museums in the world, not in vain has been named the capital of the world.

If you ever visit this wonderful city, there are three museums you must visit to experience a very wide view of the world and history in the same city.

Metropolitan Museum of Art

It contains more than 5000 years of art. His collection is so extensive that the museum has three venues: The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer and The Met Cloisters.

At The Met Fifth Avenue, you can admire collections such as the “Golden Kingdoms: Luxury & Legacy in the Ancient Americas”, where you can admire how wonderful the Mayan and Aztec culture was.

At The Met Breuer located on Madison Avenue, you can admire an important collection of the work of modern and contemporary artists from around the world.

Finally, my favorite, The Met Cloisters located on Fort Tryon Park, is dedicated to art and architecture, inspired by the gardens of medieval Europe.

All three branches of the museum provide a unique experience in the enjoyment of art in spaces that will transport you to another time and place.

The Museum of Modern Arts (MoMA)

Also with two venues, one located in Manhattan and the other, The MoMA PS1, located on Jackson Avenue in Queens, it contains a collection that has been evolving and currently has approximately 200,000 works of modern art and contemporary art.

A significant aspect that makes the difference with other museums and makes it an interesting alternative, is that the museum apart from the art exhibitions, also has film series and performance programs, which allow you to experience different forms of art in a most intimate and personal way.

The Intrepid Air, Sea & Space Museum

This museum is a different alternative to the eminently artistic movement. This museum was installed on the platform of the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier that fought during the WWII and contains exhibits such as the aircraft carrier itself, a replica of the space shuttle, a Concorde and the Growler submarine.

This kind of museum encourages, apart from the exhibition, the interpretation of history from the perspective of its presentations. An interesting place where I assure you that you will not get bored.The museum is located on Pier 86, W 46th St & 12th Ave, New York, near the Circle Line Sightseen Cruises.
