The museum was closed Sunday while crime investigators worked the scene.
According to police, his membership in the museum was revoked on Friday for two unspecified incidents related to disorderly conduct. He is believed to have returned to the scene on Saturday to exact revenge.
Horrific video footage from inside the museum shows him jumping over the reception desk, pulling out a knife and stabbing the two employees before fleeing.
Police said one of the employees was a 24-year-old woman who was being treated for stab wounds to the lower back and a stab wound to the back of the head. The other was stabbed in the collarbone.
The suspect, who jumped the museum turnstile and fled the scene after the attack, was wearing a dark jacket, a blue mask and sunglasses, sources told DailyMail.com.
One of the victims had said, “I’m going to get hazard pay,” as she was being carried to an ambulance, the New York Post reported. Police have yet to name the victims.

Police request that anyone with information about the wanted suspect contact investigators.
MoMA and its stores will be closed to the public on Sunday.
Several people who were at MoMA at the time of the stabbing filmed the frantic evacuation as museum security herded them quickly out of the building.
A Twitter user with the username Cheerleader52 said his group was locked in the basement without being told what was going on when the stabbing occurred.
‘People were screaming and crying. The police told us to run,” the user wrote while filming the escape from the museum.
Museum visitor David Durjerko, from Chicago, told NBC New York that the museum was packed with visitors sheltering from the blizzard when the attack occurred.
“All of a sudden they said ‘the museum is closed’ and people started running,” Durjerko said. “A bit of a panic on the escalators, and then they started yelling, ‘Get out, get out for your own safety.'”
MoMA officials could not be immediately reached for comment.
Police have yet to report any arrests or charges filed for the stabbing.
