Moma's Rain Room is infamous for it's extensive lines. So it's advised that you get there crack of dawn early (we arrived to a line @ 7:30am) and bring a book or the next level of candy crush to pass the time. Since I've been looking forward to this visit for such a long time I decided to use Yayoi Kusama as my mani inspiration.

After waiting a little over three hours, we finally made it inside the Rain Room. It was so worth the wait getting to experience the mystery of walking into rain and not getting wet. I spent some minutes looking up as I walked and saw the raindrops disappear. With one source of light in the room, I'm sure the artists use light recognition in their installation. It is definitely one of the most interactive and awe-inducing installations I've been to, it even gave me celestial powers to control the rain.
If you're in New York City on or before July 28th definitely make it a point to see the Rain Room.
Tips to survive the wait: bring a friend and/or a book, become a Moma member (members have the opportunity to start viewing the room earlier), bring snacks & water, and definitely arrive early.
