Art Museums

Frequently Asked Questions

 

1) What are the main art museums in New York City?

The most popular ones are the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Met Breuer, the Met Cloisters, the Guggenheim, the MoMA, the Whitney, the Brooklyn Museum and The Frick Collection. But there's also the Museum of Art and Design, MoMA PS1, the New Museum and many more.

2) Will I have to wait in line to get tickets?

For most museums, we can secure tickets before you arrive in New York City. This allows you to bypass the general admission line when you decide to explore a museum.

3) Is there a way to avoid the crowd?

Being in a museum before the crowds arrive is a truly unique experience. Some museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art offer pre-opening tours. For museums that do not offer that option, going in the morning, right when the museum opens, is always the best option to avoid the afternoon crowds.

4) Are New York City art museums wheelchair accessible?

Most of them are.

5) How I can learn about current exhibitions?

Click on the following museums to access a list of their current exhibitions.

6) I would like a guide to show me around a museum, is this possible?

Yes. The first thing we will need to know is if you would like an art specialist/museum docent to show you around or if you would just like a guide to show you the highlights of your chosen museum. Contact us for more details.

7) My clients have young children. Are those museums child-friendly?

If you do choose an art specialist/museum docent to show you around, they will make sure to adapt the tour so that children feel engaged and have fun learning about art. If you do choose to explore a museum on your own, some museums offer child-friendly maps or phone apps that provide an interactive aspect to your self-guided visit. Finally, another way of making an art museum visit a fun and memorable experience for children is to book a scavenger hunt for them.
