FREE

No ticket is needed to visit MoMA’s first floor including a lovely Sculpture Garden with a range of interesting statues (and a Paris Metro station entrance). Wander across marble stairs and bridges, throw a penny in the fountain, and bring a picnic or get ice cream and snacks from a stand in the back during warmer months.

By the film entrance, chill in comfy chais among black and white marble and rainbow Sol Lewitt murals (a great Pride photo-op). Take advantage of bathrooms with high-tech faucets and charging stations.

To the west, access free galleries with rotating exhibitions.

Art Alive

Join an intergenerational drop-in gallery visit and art-making experience. Each session, a practicing artist or artist educator focuses on a work on view in MAD’s current exhibitions, leading hands-on activities and engaging discussions geared towards an intergenerational audience.

Discussions and activities are ongoing; join at any time.

Heckscher Playground

Central Park’s largest playground features a shaded area with swings and slides, a large, maze-like climbers, seasonal water features, sloped turf, a large sandbox area, low monkey bars, tunnels, ramps and (our favorite) giant rocks to climb. Plus a spacious bathroom.

Face painters, musicians and giant bubble makers often congregate at the entrance.
