Rain Room at MoMARain

Have you ever walked in a downpour without getting wet? The immersive environment Rain Room allows you to do just that. Using digital technology, a field of falling water pauses wherever a human body is detected, offering visitors the experience of controlling the rain, as well as a peaceful atmosphere of contemplation. Designed by the collective Random International, and their largest and most ambitious project to date, Rain Room is a major component of EXPO 1—MoMA PS1′s festival of exhibitions, a school, a colony, a cinema, and more. Don’t miss the U.S. premiere of this monumental installation.

Capacity is limited to 10 people at a time. Entry is on a first-come, first-served basis and wait times are expected. Entry is not guaranteed.

Visitors should be aware that this is a dark installation featuring falling water. It is possible you will get wet.

For the technology to work most effectively, visitors are discouraged from wearing dark, shiny, reflective fabrics, fabrics made of raincoat material, or skinny high heels.

Children must be closely supervised at all times and visitors should proceed slowly through the installation.
Rain Room is subject to close for brief periods during the day if maintenance is required.
Photography is encouraged in Rain Room. Post your photos or videos on Twitter, Instagram, and Flickr with the hashtag #RainRoom, and they will appear in a live stream at MoMAPS1.org/expo1.
