Day 4 in New York-Museum Day

After a night of drinking cocktails with blogger and friend Katie, me and my partner were both feeling it the next day.

We rolled out of bed late morning and started the day with a bagel breakfast.

Once we’d eaten and got ready, we headed to MoMA (Museum of Modern Art).

I have to say, I thought MoMA was one of the museums where you pay a donation of your choice, but it was $25 each! I enjoyed the museum, but I found the entry price a little steep.

Gold Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol.

Three Musicians by Picasso.

The Sleeping Gypsy by Henri Rousseau.

And my personal favourite, The Starry Night by Vincent van Gogh.

The ‘Is Fashion Modern?’ section of MoMA.

Once we’d finished looking around, we got an Uber to the American Museum of Natural History.

Where our first port of call was food!

Once we’d fuelled up, we bought tickets to see the ‘Mummies’ exhibition.

We snuck a few pictures, but as you’re not supposed to take photos inside the exhibition they’re not the best quality.

A reconstruction of how one of the mummies would have looked.

A mummified crocodile that I found strangely cute.

And a couple of other photos from the exhibition.

After the ‘Mummies’ exhibition, we had a bit of time before the museum closed.

We checked out the dinosaurs.

And a few of the other rooms, before running out of time.

If we visit New York again, we’d definitely spend more time exploring the museum properly.

On our walk back to our hotel, we saw the famous Dakota Building.

The Dakota Building’s most famous resident was John Lennon, who lived there for a number of years before he was subsequently killed outside.

Once we arrived at our hotel, we rested up for a while.

Before heading out to eat at Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square.

Hard Rock’s cocktails are my favourites.

And my veggie burger and chips was great too.

The Beatles memorabilia on display.

After finishing in Hard Rock, we headed out to see the bright lights and billboards of Times Square.

We watched spray paint artists create incredible art.

I went into Sephora and a few other stores that were open late, such as the super cute Line Friends shop.

Then as it was getting late, we booked an Uber back to our hotel, ready for day five.

  1. You guys were absolute rockstars! Taking New York by storm! I also do not know how you rallied but am in awe that you did! I agree MoMa’s admission is quite steep which stinks. But I am glad you guys got to take it in! As always I LOVE your pictures! ❤

  2. I love the amount of museums in New York, and how they’re all cool in their own way! It would probably take a week to visit all of them. The art at MoMA is so interesting, but I just don’t “get” some of the displays, you know what I mean? haha.

    • I didn’t get to do all of the museums I wanted, there’s so many good ones! You defo need a week alone for museums. 😂 I do get what you mean. At the Tate Modern in London, there was a urinal which was supposedly art! Haha x

  4. I always find the “Big Name” museums to be expensive. The Royal Ontario Museum costs $20 per ticket and that doesn’t even include the special exhibits which requires addition money!
    It is really cool to see the original pieces of art that you’ve only seen in photos though. Haha I love how you snuck photos even though you’re not supposed to – it’s something I was try to do too. 😉
    Line Friends shop is so cute! I’ve seen that bear before but didn’t know what it was called! Of course they don’t have a store in Canada… seems to have mostly in China and Korea.

    • Aah in London most museums are free, you just pay for special exhibitions. The exhibitions are usually really good though😊 It is. I really love The Starry Night painting. Haha my partner does all the photo taking, whilst I explore. I think half the time he’s hoping to get kicked out of the exhibitions, especially if it’s a fashion one😂 I’d never heard of Line Friends, but the store was really cute. I thought it might be a Korean store, but I think online it said Japanese xx
