Don’t Miss the Museum Mile Festival in June

Museum Summer Street Festival in New York

Museum Mile Festival The Museum Mile Festival will take place on June 14 from 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., come rain or shine. Don’t miss out on the chance to visit free museums in NYC including the Guggenheim, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, El Museo del Barrio, the Jewish Museum, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Museum of the City of New York and others.

The festival initially began as an effort to garner new audiences for the museums and increase support for the arts in the 1970s. It was at this time that Museum Mile was formed and is now referred to as the section on Fifth Avenue where several museums can be found.

The very first festival in 1978 was a success as it achieved its goal of exposing locals and visitors alike to a collection of the city’s artistic and cultural riches. This summer street festival in New York continues to promote public awareness via increased accessibility, visibility and attendance at the museums.

Today, the festival’s reach goes way beyond New York City. Tourists from around the country travel in the thousands to enjoy the festival. In fact, over its 37 years, attendance at the festival has surpassed the one million visitors mark. It is because of this success that the stretch from 82nd to 105th Streets along Fifth Avenue have been designated as the Museum Mile.

Enjoy 23 car-free blocks of NYC, free access to all museums from 6pm-9pm for all museums along the mile, live bands and entertainment as well as art in the street!

If you’re planning a trip especially around the festival, be sure to book your accommodations with us at The Manhattan Club. Our boutique hotel is conveniently located in midtown Manhattan, close to a range of the city’s attractions. After the festival, head back to the hotel and indulge in comfortable accommodations and all the amenities you could need during your stay.
