Q:How much does admission to MoMA PS1 cost?
A:Admission to MoMA PS1 is free for members and New Yorkers—everyone else pays a suggested US$5–10.

Q:Is MoMA PS1 good for kids?

A:Visiting MoMA PS1 is worth it if you love experimental contemporary art—consider the exhibition space MoMA's younger progressive cousin.
