  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the largest in America with over 2 million pieces within its collections. There are famous works from around the world dating back through the centuries. Definitely a worthwhile experience!
  • The Brooklyn Museum, housed in a 560,000-square-foot, Beaux-Arts building, is one of the oldest and largest art museums in the country. Its world-renowned permanent collections range from ancient Egyptian masterpieces to contemporary art, and represent a wide range of cultures.
  • The Frick Collection. Internationally recognized as a premier museum and research center, the Frick is known for its distinguished Old Master paintings and outstanding examples of European sculpture and decorative arts.
  • The New Museum began as an idea in the mind of founding Director Marcia Tucker. As a curator at the Whitney Museum of American Art from 1967 through 1976, Tucker observed first-hand that new work by living artists was not easily assimilated into the conventional exhibition and collection structure of the traditional art museum.
  • The National Academy is a community of artists, students, museum-goers, and supporters of the arts. Since 1825, the National Academy Museum, School, and association of esteemed artists and architects—National Academicians—have been united in the common goal of bringing art to all through arts education and exhibition.
  • Everyone deserves to be treated like a star so why not visit the original Planet Hollywood in bustling Times Square for a dining experience you will never forget.
