Museum of Modern Art – MoMA

It is located in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.

Founded in 1929, the Museum of Modern Art is an iconic museum of contemporary and modern art worldwide, an institution of reference for the history of the contemporary Western culture. Originally conceived by its founders as a place for Modern art, the museum established a permanent collection in 1952 and has become the home for some of the greatest works of avant-garde painting, sculpture, film and multi-media art in the world. Its permanent collection is widely considered the most impressive and diverse assortment of Modern art to ever exist, ranging from late-19th-century van Goghs, Monets and Gauguins to works produced in the present day.
