June 2014

For one day in June, 10 museums, located from 82nd to 105th streets on Fifth Avenue, open their doors to the public for free and play host to a block-party style festival. The stretch of 23 blocks, closed to traffic, features live music, street performers, face painting and chalk drawing. Participating museums include the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum (which will open its doors in 2014 after a renovation) and the Jewish Museum.
