Venue Description: The Museum of Modern Art, also known as MoMA, offers a rich and panoramic view into modern art in the world. Founded in 1929, it has grown to include more than 135,000 paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculptures, films, and design objects. MoMA seeks to create an environment that is responsive to the issues of modern and contemporary art, while being accessible to a public that ranges from scholars to young children.

MoMA has three restaurants on the premises: Café 2 is the museum?s sophisticated cafeteria; Terrace 5 is a full-service café; and The Modern offers the original, Alsatian-inspired cuisine of Chef Gabriel Kreuther, recently awarded three stars by The New York Times.
