New York Car Rentals and the Museum of Modern Art
The Museum of Modern Art is an art museum in Midtown Manhattan that is easy to get to with your New York City car rental. It is considered to be one of the best museums of modern art in the world, and a rival to the nearby Metropolitan Museum of Art.
The Museum of Modern Art was founded in 1929 at a time where there were no other museums that was devoted exclusively to modern art. The original donation of eight prints and one drawing grew quickly and they soon moved to the current location 11 West 53rd Street. It opened here on May 10, 1939 in a building designed in the International Style. This is where you want to come with your New York City car rental to see some of the greatest modern art in New York.
The Museum of Modern Art has more than 150,000 pieces as well as 22,000 films and four million film stills. Some of its most famous pieces include:
- Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh
- Les Demoiselles d'Avignon by Pablo Picasso
- The Persistence of Memory by Slvador Dali
- Water Lilies triptych by Claude Monet
The permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art includes architecture and design, drawings, film and media, paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints and illustrated books.
The Museum of Modern Art always has interesting exhibitions that are worth coming down to see with your New York car rental. Some past examples of exhibits include Take Two. Worlds and Views: Contemporary Art from the Collection, Pixar: 20 Years of Animation, and Humble Masterpieces.
The Museum of Modern Art is located at 11 West Fifty-third Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues. If you drive your New York City car rental there is parking nearby at the 1345 Garage and museum visitors receive a discount when they get their parking ticket validated. Otherwise it may be better to take public transportation instead of your New York City car rental.
