After five months of being shuttered, The Museum of Modern Art has reopened its doors to the public.
The cultural institution, which holds the world’s finest collection of modern and contemporary art, is known for its coveted free “First Fridays.” Now, admission to the gallery will be free everyday through September 27.
Tickets to MoMA will be offered in time slots to regulate how many people are entering at once, and all tickets must be reserved online—none will not be available at the door. Tickets will be up for grabs one week in advance, every Friday at 10am, so set your timers.

New York City museums and other cultural institutes were able to reopen again beginning August 24, as long as they met the latest state-mandated safety protocols.
“This pandemic is far from over, but we’ve determined that institutions can reopen if they adhere to strict state guidance and take every precaution to keep visitors safe, and I look forward to seeing them inspire New Yorkers once again,” Governor Cuomo said in a statement.
The MoMA is located at 11 West 53rd Street and is open 10:30am to 5:30 pm (7 days a week).
