The 44th annual Museum Mile Festival is back this year with a slew of virtual programs, exhibition tours, live musical performances and activities for all ages.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Neue Galerie New York, Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum; Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum, The Jewish Museum, Museum of the City of New York, El Museo del Barrio and The Africa Center are all participating and streaming their respective programs on their social media platforms and websites.
As is the case each year, New Yorkers will get to visit each cultural institution for free for one night only. No cars will be allowed on Fifth Avenue between 82nd and 105th Streets (which the city has officially dubbed Museum Mile!) making for a city dweller's dream event.
The Met will host this year's kickoff party but be sure to stay for the whole festival, which runs 6pm through 9pm.
