New York is one of the biggest cities in the USA and global art capital. It is a dream destination for tourists from all over the world. And this is not a surprise – the city is a bright symbol of the American culture. But it is not only the American spirit that it preserves. There you can meet people from exotic countries and get familiar with their lifestyle. For those who do not like that kind of experience, the city provides a rich variety of other activities – sightseeing, nightlife, experimenting with varied cuisine. “The City That Never Sleeps” has much to offer even to the art lovers.
If your way to examine new cultures is through museums, then you are at the right place. In New York, you can visit entire neighborhoods dedicated to museums and galleries. Whatever is the sphere of your interest, surely there is a museum that covers it.
The Museum of Modern Art is located in Long Island City, Queens. It is a must-visit place for people who are interested in contemporary art. Its expositions are provocative, creative, and can be an inspiration for other artists. Although the museum is open for everyone, its artworks may be hard to understand for people who do not appreciate abstract forms.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art (“The Met”)
The Met is located in a magnificent building in Central Park. It is one of the most visited museums in the world. One day is not enough if you want to enjoy all of the expositions there. The artworks date from ancient to modern times. They let you follow the development of art during different eras. The Met has a great variety of artifacts – sculptures, paintings, weapons, musical instruments. The expositions are not limited only to American and European art – their focus is also on Asian, African, and Australian art.
New-York Historical Society
It is located at the corner of 77th Street and Central Park West. This is the oldest museum in New York. It represents the history of the city and the American nation through rich exhibitions of paintings. It also provides a space for interactive programs for children.
If museums and galleries do not satisfy your thirst for art, there is an experience you would not want to miss while you are still in New York.

Broadway is the oldest and the longest street in New York. But today Broadway is used as a synonym for American theater and a center of New York City art. It refers to theatrical performances that take place in 41 theaters. Not all of these theaters are on Broadway street. In fact, most of them are situated in the Theater District and Lincoln Center. Broadway is a summarizing name for theaters with a capacity for at least 500 people. So when some venues are classified as “off-Broadway”, it just means they have a smaller capacity, not that they present low quality plays.
This theater is actually located on Broadway street. Its capacity is 1761 seats. It provides accommodation for disabled people, so its shows can be visited by anyone. The latest performance you can enjoy in Broadway Theater is West Side Story. It is a musical considered as one of the classics of the 20th century. In the 21st century, it is being remade by some of the best theater-makers of our time. It is a play you would regret missing.
So if you are in New York and you are looking for an unforgettable experience, Broadway shows are one of your best options.
