Museum Mile Festival
June 9, 2015 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Ever wonder what it would be like to walk a mile in a museum’s shoes? Well, NYC’s annual Museum Mile Festival allows you to do just that and so much more. Kicking off on 6/9, this 23-block cultural extravaganza offers free access to some of the city’s most esteemed museums that can be found all along Fifth Avenue. Participants get the chance to see the world’s finest art collections up on display at famous places like the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim. But just in case that alone isn’t enough to strike your fancy, the festival also includes exciting outdoor activities, such as face painting, chalk drawing, live music, and more! It’s the culture fix you never knew you needed. (Fifth Ave. b/w 82nd and 105th St.)
