A Guide to the Best Art Museums to Visit in NYC
1. Brooklyn Museum
When the museums in Manhattan are busy, head to Brooklyn instead. At 560,000 square feet, the Brooklyn Museum is home to more than one and a half million pieces of art. Whether you’re a fan of ancient or contemporary art, or Western or non-Western masterpieces, you’ll find an impressive collection within its historic walls.
2. Queens Museum
Formerly known as Queens Museum of Art, this museum is unique in that it examines the contemporary urban life of its constituents. Its most famous exhibit is the Panorama of the City of New York, a room-sized scale model of the five boroughs taken from the 1964 New York World's Fair. Many of its 10,000 items on display pay tribute to the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs.
3. The Jewish Museum
The first Jewish museum in the United States and oldest existing Jewish museum in the world, the Jewish Museum in Manhattan features a large collection of Jewish art and culture with more than 30,000 pieces on display. Visitors can browse paintings, sculptures, artifacts, and ceremonial objects. Don’t miss the facade of the building; it features Gothic revival elements.
