New York City has officially designated Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th streets “Museum Mile” because of the vast richness and cultural diversity of the museums found there.
One day a year, some of the city’s finest museums, all ones that call Fifth Avenue home, collectively open their doors for FREE to New Yorkers and visitors for a mile-long block party and visual art celebration.
The 2018 Museum Mile Festival is sponsored by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, and the participating museums are:-
The Jewish Museum
The Metropolitan Museum of Art
El Museo Del Barrio
Museum of the City of New York
Cooper Hewitt, National Design Museum
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum
