February 6, 2015 | Prachi Gupta

For the first time in two years, the MoMA will stay open for more than 24 hours in a row. Starting at 10:30 AM on Friday morning, the museum will remain open until 5:30 PM Sunday. The extended hours are being held in honor of the final days of the museum’s Henri Matisse exhibit.

“Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs,” boasts “the largest and most extensive presentation of the artist’s cut-outs ever assembled,” according to MoMA’s site, with nearly 100 pieces of Matisse’s intricate and colorful paper cut-outs. Also on display are Matisse’s “drawings, illustrated books, stained glass, and textiles.”

Regular admission price remains $25, but falls to $12 during off-hours. Weekend visitors are required to reserve tickets in advance. The exhibit closes on February 10th.
