Millions of tourists not only from New York but from around the country and world are coming this year to the Museum Mile Festival that will take place in June! The City of New York officially designated Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 105th streets as “Museum Mile” further cementing the area as one of the city’s major cultural resources. You can’t miss one of the New York top events!
Begun as an initiative to spur the development of new museum audiences and to increase support for the arts during the fiscal crisis of the 1970s, Museum Mile was formed as a consortium by the museums that share the Fifth Avenue address. The first New York festival, held in June of 1978, was an instant success.
Museum Mile Festival promotes public awareness through increased visibility, accessibility and attendance at all the museums in New York.
