A dedicated exhibition space, MoMA PS1 celebrates new and innovative art by hosting experimental and contemporary exhibitions. Go to see genre-defying work in PS1’s historic building—a former New York City public school. MoMA PS1 also schedules regular events, from panel discussions to dance performances.
MoMA PS1 is a New York beacon of the arts, with rotating exhibits and site-specific works by celebrated artists like James Turrel. Expect busy galleries, and crowds for special events such as the Sunday Sessions performances and the summer electronic music series, Warm Up. To skip the line, buy tickets online in advance.

How to Get There
Because of its Long Island City location—at 22-25 Jackson Avenue—MoMA PS1 is well-connected by subway, and convenient to access from Manhattan. Take the 7 train to the Court Square station, the E train to the Court Square-23rd Street station, or the G train to the 21 Street-Van Alst station.
When to Get There
MoMa PS1 is open Thursday through Monday, except on major holidays. Weekends tend to be crowded, and the museum often has more visitors before evening events. For fewer people, visit midweek or early in the day. Check the MoMA website for hours and events.
Art Along the Waterfront
Make the most of your art-filled day in Queens with a visit to Socrates Sculpture Park, located on the water in nearby Astoria. Pack a picnic lunch, and check out sculptures, multimedia installations, and views of Manhattan’s skyline. This free attraction is open daily till sundown, and is easiest to access via subway (take the N or W train to Broadway station) or quick taxi ride from PS1.
