Happy Art Museum Day! Here are the institutions offering free admission

Jennifer P

Art lovers, rejoice! According to the Association of Art Museum Directors, it’s National Art Museum Day—meaning you can feed your curious mind for free or snag some awesome discounts at several of New York’s finest museums right now or throughout the week.

Maybe we’re biased, but some of the best art can be found in our fair city. And since the weather is not entirely up to par today, we can’t think of a better way to kick off the week than with a little dose of culture. Here are a few standout participants below, but you can view the full lineup here.


Museum of Modern Art: 10:30am—5:30pm
Half price on all online admission ticket purchases made for May 18

Visitors who purchase the half-price admission may apply the value of a full ticket price toward the cost of a membership
