Museum Mile Summer Festival

June 9, 2017
New York City‘s special museum season kicks off on June 13th with the Museum Mile Festival.  Several museums keep their doors open longer than usual and offer free admission to patrons.  Your New York City student tour group will enjoy visits to these museums:
(1) On June 13th, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum begins its Summer Tuesdays series with extended hours until 9 p.m.  As your New York City school trip walks around the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed rotunda, your New York City educational tour group will enjoy work by artists including Kandinsky, Picasso, van Gogh and Pollock, who also has his own show, “Jackson Pollock: Exploring Alchemy” through September 6th.
(2) Viewing all of the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s galleries could take a New York City school trip days but this summer make sure your New York City student tour group sees the new Costume Institute exhibit, “Rei Kawakubo/Comme des Garçons: Art of the In-Between”, focusing on the Japanese fashion designer, and “Sara Berman’s Closet”, a re-creation filled with shoes, clothes, linens, beauty products, luggage and other necessities,
all in shades of white.  The Roof Garden Bar offers summer treats with dazzling views of New York City.
(3) The American Museum of Natural History offers both children and adults the opportunity to sleepover at the museum.  If your New York City educational tour group prefers to visit while the sun is out, make sure your New York City school trip does not miss the museum’s newest exhibit, “Mummies”, which looks at the mummification practices of ancient Egyptians and Peruvians; and displays such as “The Titanosaur”, “Cuba”  and “Opulent Oceans” as well as the film “Humpback Whales”.
(4) The New York Historical Society celebrates the 100th anniversary of the United States’ entry into World War I.  New York City student tour groups have a chance to explore how American artists reacted to the conflict with “World War I Beyond the Trenches”, featuring artwork by John Singer Sargent, Georgia O’Keeffe and others, as well as toys and posters.  The exhibit, “Elosie at the Museum”, takes a closer look at the minds, sketches and manuscripts behind the picture-book heroine.  End your visit with a treat from the recently opened Parliament Espresso and Coffee Bar.

(5) On the first Saturday of every month, the Brooklyn Museum stays up late. Target First Saturdays allow New York City school trip groups to explore exhibits until 11 p.m.  Enjoy “Georgia O’Keeffe: Living Modern”, “We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85”, and “Infinite Blue”.  Independence Day is celebrated in July and Caribbean culture will be celebrated in August.  Stop by the cafe for a snack or an Artist Sandwich, inspired by artists featured at the museum.
