NYC on the Cheap: What to Do - Walk the Museum Mile on June 3rd

Every year since 1978, one special June evening finds revelers celebrating the Museum Mile Festival. Dubbed "New York's biggest block party," the festival spans 5th Avenue, including renowned museums from the Met at 89th, to Cooper-Hewitt (on 91st), to El Museo del Barrio on 105th.

For three hours only, join children wielding street chalk, and professional musicians & dancers as they enliven the streets and museums, bringing together an assortment of revelers. From New Yorkers from all walks, to the tourists who have planned their vacations to coincide with the festivities, all enjoy the fun & free admission to the 9 museums on the Mile.
