“Picasso Sculpture,” minus the crowds.


It seemed too good to be true that entry to MoMA’s “Picasso Sculpture” was un-ticketed when the exhibition opened in September. Today, the museum announced that that would no longer be the case—museum visitors are now required to buy timed tickets in advance for the critically acclaimed “Picasso sculpture” survey.

The timed tickets will include admission to the museum and can be bought either on MoMA’s website or in person at the museum. MoMA previously required timed tickets for its Henri Matisse cut-outs show, which, like “Picasso Sculpture,” was open during the holidays, and which was ultimately seen by more than 500,000 people. Tickets for that show sold out fast—an entire day’s tickets could be gone by noon on a weekend in December—so MoMA recommends buying tickets online and far in advance. MoMA members and their guests can still see “Picasso Sculpture” without a timed ticket.
