Upper East Side museums: The best of Museum Mile and its environs

Before hitting Museum Mile’s peerless cultural cache, peruse our list of Upper East Side museums, from the massive Met to private collections.

Between 82nd and 105th Streets, Fifth Avenue is lined with more than half a dozen celebrated institutions. Trace the history of art in the era- and globe-spanning Metropolitan Museum of Art, then admire the spiral lines of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. It's also essential to head east of Museum Mile for other top Upper East Side museums such as the Whitney Museum of American Art (before it moves to its new Meatpacking District digs).
