MoMA is awesome. I got a chance to check out the museum yesterday (for free!) and I really enjoyed it. I was surprised by the diverse range of art that is considered modern, I saw everything from Monet and Matisse to foldable wheelchairs.

The building itself was great because it was very simple and sleek. It also had an awesome outdoor area with a pond, seating, and a number of sculptures.

My favorite piece of art was the giant Monet Waterlily painting. From a distance the image of the waterlilies was so clear but the closer you got, the more abstract the picture appeared to be. MoMA was really neat and I look forward to going back again soon!
