Starting today, the Museum of the City of New York is celebrating the one-year run of its “New York at its Core” exhibition by opening its doors for free all week. Exhibitions, panels and much more. Here are the details.
There’s no shortage of culture in the city for the willing New Yorker, but money can often be a turn-off for our most cash-strapped residents (most of us). Now we’re out of excuses, one of our best museums is open for free all week, Museum of the City of New York.
Celebrating the one-year anniversary of its New York at its Core exhibition , the Museum is offering FREE ADMISSION to all visitors today (Monday, November 13) through to Sunday, November 19.
New York at Its Core is the first and only exhibition to cover the entire 400-year sweep of New York history with features an interactive look at what the future holds for the greatest city in the world.
Following the weeklong free admission, there will be a big birthday party on Sunday, (November 19) filled with fun festivities, including a kid-friendly silent disco, a ceremony with a special cake, dance performances, and acapella sets from the New York Belles.
Other exhibitions on view include Beyond Suffrage: A Century of New York Women, Rhythm and Power: Salsa in New York, To Quench the Thirst of New Yorkers: The Croton Aqueduct at 175, and Art in the Open: Fifty Years of Public Art in New York.
