From an initial gift of eight prints and one drawing, The Museum of Modern Art’s collection has grown to include more than 150,000 individual paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural renderings, and design objects and is now considered by many to have the best collection of modern Western masterpieces in the world. MoMA’s Department of Film, which ranks as one of the world’s top archives of international film art, includes over 25,000 titles and four million film stills and the MoMA Library includes 300,000 books, 1,000 periodicals, and 40,000 files about artists and their movements.  Founded in 1929 in order to help people understand and enjoy the visual arts of our time, The Museum of Modern Art in New York City was the world's first museum dedicated to the education and enjoyment of modern art.  In the Fall of 2019, after a $450-million, 47,000-square-foot expansion, a reimagined MoMa opened with a focus on new voices and fresh perspectives.

Architecture and Design Collection at MoMA

The world's first curatorial department devoted to architecture and design was established in 1932 at The Museum of Modern Art. From its inception, the collection has been built on the recognition that architecture and design are allied and interdependent arts, so that synthesis has been a founding ... [ + ]premise of the collection. Including 28,000 works ranging from large-scale design objects to works on paper and architectural models, the Museum’s diverse Architecture and Design collection surveys major figures and movements from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. Starting with the reform ideology established by the Arts and Crafts movement, the collection covers major movements of the twentieth century and contemporary issues. The architecture collection documents buildings through models, drawings, and photographs, and includes the Mies van der Rohe Archive. The design collection comprises thousands of objects, ranging from appliances, furniture, and tableware to tools, textiles, sports cars—even a helicopter. The graphic design collection includes noteworthy examples of typography, posters, and other combinations of text and image.

Media and Performance Art Collection at MoMA

The Department of Media and Performance Art collects, exhibits, and preserves time-based art. The department's focus includes moving images, film installations, video, performance, motion- and sound-based works, and other works that represent time or duration and are made for and presented in a gall... [ + ]ery setting. Media-specific preservation needs, like securing equipment, updating exhibition-mode technology, and developing ways to re-create duration-based presentations, are part of the department's mission. The Museum began to pioneer the collection and exhibition of time-based art in the 1960s, and established the Department of Media in September 2006. Its holdings date from approximately 1960 to the present. The department and its study center are located on the third floor of The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, in the southern wing overlooking The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden.
