Museum Mile Festival

Museum Mile Festival

Join us for the annual Museum Mile Festival! Walk the mile on Fifth Avenue between 82nd and 105th Streets while visiting nine of New York City's finest cultural institutions, all open free to the public throughout the evening. Step inside the Great Hall and let art move you! Pick up materials that help you explore and draw in the Met's galleries—from gallery hunts for families to sketching guides for visitors of all ages. Make the Met yours as you find out about the many great programs coming up this fall.
