New York Museums

Looking for something to do this summer? Why not go to a museum? Here are some good choices:

1. The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art – also called “the Met” – is in a huge building on the east side of Central Park. It has art from many different countries and from many different time periods. It’s one of the most famous art museums in the world.

Address: 1000 5th Avenue,  New York, NY 10028

Click here to see it on Google Maps.

Price: If you go there, you will see that it says $25 “recommended donation” for adults, which means you pay what you can. So if you want to pay less, you can.

2. The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art – also called MoMA – has newer artwork, with special exhibitions all the time. It also has a nice courtyard and cafe.

    Don’t forget the Rubin Museum of Art (150 West 17th Street). They always have a lot of great Asian art and it is not too expensive-
    $10 for adults; $5 for Seniors (65+) and Students (13+); Free for Children (12 and younger). Free to all Friday 6-10 p.m. Free to seniors (65 and older) first Monday of every month.

    Also, Time Out New York (a magazine all about things happening in NYC) has a lot of information about visiting museums this summer. You can see all the information on their website – http://www.timeout.com/newyork/attractions/summer-museum-exhibit-guide-the-seasons-best-museum-exhibits-in-nyc

    Let us know if you visit any of the museums. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!!! -Joe
