Join the Museum of the City of New York and our neighbors up and down Museum Mile for the 44th Annual Museum Mile Festival.

Come in, cool off, and stroll through our galleries. We'll be open late for you to explore exhibitions that delve into the history, culture, and spirit of NYC. Whether you're looking to travel back to a pre-digital New York in our latest exhibition Analog City, or experience the sights and sounds of the 80s in our blockbuster show New York New Music: 1980–1986, there's something on view to pique your interest. Visit the beloved Stettheimer Dollhouse and enjoy our new Family Guide, providing fun for all ages. Start your journey here and discover what makes New York New York.

This year marks the return of an in-person festival, following two years of virtual events during the pandemic. 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. 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!
