Fun Visit at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)

I was a little selfish when choosing which museum to visit in our NYC trip. I chose Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) over American Museum of Natural History. Why? Well, I am more interested in art over science. Haha!

EJ likes art but he likes science more. He is our walking science dictionary at home! I know he would enjoy visiting the American Museum of Natural History but I thought it's time to introduce him to some great art.

MoMA is just walking distance from our hotel, lucky us!

I bought our admission tickets in advance through their website. If you are visiting during the Christmas time like us, I highly suggest you buy the tickets through their website because the line at the ticket booth can get very long. You don't want to be queueing in a frigid temperature now, do you?

Prior to our visit, I prepped EJ to make our visit is smooth, interesting and fun for him. I told him what to expect and we agreed on some rules: no running, no shouting, no touching and always stay close by mom and dad.

I don't pretend to know art or love art for that matter. What I know is that I like looking at beautiful things like paintings and sculptures. And MoMA has a lot of that.

{He enjoyed looking at the paintings, he really did!}
