During Your Visit

MoMA PS1 is located in what was once a 19th-century public school building. Occupying a historic building offers some challenges and idiosyncrasies, however our team strives to create an accessible and welcoming space for everyone.

Arrival and Wayfinding

MoMA PS1’s main entrance is located at 22-25 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens. On arrival you will be greeted by a member of our Visitor Engagement Team. Once checked in, you will follow a concrete path into our Courtyard before entering the main building. There is a ramp and power assist doors to enter the building.

Floors

MoMA PS1’s building was constructed in the 19th century, and retains its original architectural integrity. As a result, you will encounter varied flooring and tile throughout the space. Our Visitor Engagement team is available to assist with navigating differences in floor materials and grade.
