If I had known that there was no difference between buying from viator and buying my ticket from the cashier, I would not have bought it from viator. I would have bought it directly from the Whitney on line.
I thought I was using the Whitney web site to buy my ticket. But Viator is something else, even though I thought I had clicked on the Whitney site. The issue is that I am a senior and there was no option on Viator to buy a senior ticket which was $18 instead of $25
World class modern art museum in a beautiful building at a great location. Modern art by american artists-- don't expect recognizable classics here although you may recognize a few of the names. Museum is located directly at an entrance to the High Line, NY's wonderful elevated walking park. If you aren't worn out from the museum, step out and stretch your legs. The city views will not disappoint.
Lines for the museum can sometimes be long earlier in the day, but are quite reasonable by mid afternoon. Allow at least 2.5 hours to stroll past everything, a bit longer if you want to linger and reflect on this terrific collection.
