Visiting the Whitney Museum of American Art
The Whitney Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, except for Thanksgiving, December 25, and New Year’s Day. Admission discounts are offered to seniors and students, and admission is free to museum members and to children under 12. The museum’s four spacious floors of exhibition space flow easily and provide a light and airy feel to the museum.
Tours of the museum’s highlights are offered periodically throughout the day at no additional charge, and the Whitney boasts one of the city’s best museum restaurants -- "Sarabeth’s at the Whitney". The Whitney offers several program to help families best enjoy the museum, including special free "family cards" of the museum’s most important pieces, which list the important points about each work, and free sketchbooks for families to make their own interpretations.
The Whitney Museum of American Art is a celebration of this country’s unique artistic style. Bolder and more innovative than the other major New York museums, it’s a must-see for any true art lover.
Location: at 945 Madison Avenue, New York City, New York
