4 of New York City’s Top Museums Have After-Hours Winter Festivities
Four of the cities most important museums are open late this season for special programming, music, and drinks. We have more than our fair share of nightlife and amazing museums in NYC, but when the two combine it’s something not to be missed. Here is the list:
MoMA Evenings

Fridays and Saturdays until the end of 2017, MoMA will stay open until 9 pm. Visitors can expect to buy Cocktails and snacks, and weather permitting, the Sculpture Garden will stay open. Spend an evening in one of the city’s most iconic art museums. 

Whitney Museum Evenings

Friday and Saturday the Whitney Museum stays open until 10 pm. Though not a party as such, this after-hours affair offers “pay-what-you-wish admission” from 7 to 9:30 pm. The project also has a slew of  “Public Programming” in the evening, you can check out what’s on offer HERE.
