Good To Know

Museums entrance fees can add up, especially if you’re planning an outing with your entire family or group of friends. It’s good to know that the museums listed in this article all have special hours with free or discounted pricing.

At The MET Breuer, New York State residents as well as New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut students have the advantage of the amount you pay for entrance being up to you (so essentially, “pay what you wish”.) The Guggenheim has “pay what you wish” hours every Saturday from 5pm to 7:45pm, and the MOMA has “Free Friday Nights”, every Friday evening from 4pm to 8:00pm.
