MoMA PS1 was founded in 1971 by Alanna Heiss and has been an affiliate of The Museum of Modern Art since 2000.

It is an exhibition space rather than a collecting institution, MoMA PS1 devotes its energy and resources to displaying the most experimental art in the world. A catalyst and an advocate for new ideas, discourses, and trends in contemporary art, MoMA PS1 actively pursues emerging artists, new genres, and adventurous new work by recognized artists in an effort to support innovation in contemporary art. MoMA PS1 achieves this mission by presenting its diverse program to a broad audience in a unique and welcoming environment in which visitors can discover and explore the work of contemporary artists. Exhibitions at MoMA PS1 include artists' retrospectives, site-specific installations, historical surveys, arts from across the United States and the world, and a full schedule of music and performance programming.

M. Wells Dinette is a cafeteria-style restaurant by Hugue Dufour and Sarah Obraitis that pays homage to MoMA PS1’s former identity as a schoolhouse by offering communal tables and a perpetually changing menu. Museum admission is not required for entry.

MoMA PS1’s public entrance on Jackson Avenue is accessible by ramp. Wheelchairs are available free of charge in the coat check on a first-come, first-served basis. The three main floors of the museum, including the bookstore and café, are accessible by elevator. For elevator access to the basement, please ask for assistance at the information desk in the lobby area. Wheelchair-accessible bathrooms are located on floors 1, 2, and 3. For more information, or to notify our staff of any special needs.

If you have purchased a ticket for MoMA, you can visit MoMA PS1 for free within 14 days of your MoMA admission purchase (except Saturdays, July–August).
Suggested fees are: Adults $10, Seniors $5 and Students $5.
Admission to MoMA PS1 is currently free for all NYC residents, courtesy of the Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Foundation.
