to all the museums along the mile
23 car-free blocks
5th Avenue between 82nd & 105th
activities for kids
One day a year, for the past 28 years, nine of the country's finest museums, all ones that call Fifth Avenue home, collectively open their doors for free to New Yorkers and visitors for a mile-long block party and visual art celebration. 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.
This year's 29th annual festival kicks off at The National Academy of Design with an opening ceremony, at 5:45pm, on the steps of its landmark building on Fifth Avenue @82nd street.
Plus, follow the mile with street muralist De La Vega – grab a piece of chalk and make your mark!
