You can find all of this on the festival website, www.museummilefestival.org. But here are the pertinent details:
- FREE ACCESS 6pm – 9pm to all the museums along the mile
- 23 car-free blocks (5th Avenue between 82nd & 105th)
- Live bands
- Art-in-the street activities for kids
Once a year, nine of the country’s finest museums collectively open their doors for free for a mile-long block party. This traffic-free, music and art-filled celebration fills the street and sidewalks of Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th street, the mile now officially designated as Museum Mile. Over 50,000 visitors attend the festival annually. I’m gonna be one of them this year. The weather will be cool and maybe a little rainy, but no matter. If you’re in the area, go!
