The American Folk Art Museum celebrates traditional craft-based work. Designed by architects Billie Tsien and Tod Williams, the stunning eight-floor building is four times larger than the original Lincoln Center location (now a branch of the museum) and includes a café. The range of decorative, practical and ceremonial folk art encompasses pottery, trade signs, delicately stitched log-cabin quilts and wind-up toys. Free family guides are available at the admission desk, and on the first Saturday of most months, the museum hosts a family tour and workshop that's free with admission.
