Join the Museum of the City of New York and our neighbors up and down Museum Mile for the 46th Annual Museum Mile Festival.

We will be open and FREE from 6–9pm for you to explore our exciting exhibitions that delve into the history, culture, and spirit of NYC. Don't miss the chance to see our newest exhibition Changing the Face of Democracy: Shirley Chisolm at 100 and send off of our centennial exhibition This is New York: 100 Years of the City in Art and Pop Culture — and make sure to grab a Kids’ Activity Guide for the little ones.

Established in 1978 to increase public awareness of its member institutions and promote public support of the arts, the Museum Mile Festival serves as a model for similar events across the globe. The eight institutions participating in this highly successful collaboration are 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. We will also be joined by several neighborhood partners, including the New York Academy of Medicine, the Church of the Heavenly Rest, Asia Society, and AKC Museum of the Dog.

Museum of the City of New York; El Museo del Barrio, and The Metropolitan Museum of Art are members of the Cultural Institutions Group (CIG), a diverse coalition of 34 nonprofit museums, performing arts centers, historical societies, zoos, and botanical gardens in New York that share a private-public partnership with the City and reside within City-owned property.

The doors to each museum will be open to the public for free throughout the event. Please check each museum’s website to learn more about their programming.

Free to all, no registration required!
