Why

The MoMA App allows you to find out what’s on at the Museum, plan a visit, browse or search tens of  thousands of works in the collection, take an audio tour, or learn about artists and art terms. You can take a picture of a work of art and send it to a friend, or put together a playlist to create a soundtrack for your MoMA visit.


Calendar

The MoMA iPhone application features include:

  • A Calendar of current and upcoming exhibitions, daily events and screening, with the ability to share via Facebook or Twitter.
  • Tours, which include the MoMA Audio programs, with five distinct tour options, as well as the ability to browse by floor or stop number.
  • An Art index of all works and artists featured in the collection as well as a database of art terms.
  • Information about the museum, including hours, admissions and directions.
  • MoMA Snaps offers the option to take a picture and send it as a Museum postcard.
  • MoMA Tracks allows visitors to select tracks from their own music library to listen to while exploring the Museum or the MoMA App. 

An Android version of the app is also available.
