    Their permanent collection is always interesting for all ages. One of my favorite places to go in New York is their Visible Storage Study Center. I could spend hours there discovering new pieces.

    One of my favorite NYC museums- the exhibits are curated so well and often tell a fresh story about the artist. The architecture is also stunning on its own.

    The borough’s largest museum is a must. With more than 1 million pieces to see, it’s easy to get lost among the Colonial era art,Egyptian antiquities & peculiar collection of South Pacific artifacts.

    A world-class museum right in the heart of Brooklyn, mixing art alongside historical artifacts and contemporary culture. I love how connected the curators of the museum are with social media.

    If you can get there before August, check out the exhibit Grace and Gravity by Ghanaian artist El Anatsui. A beautiful use of found metals such as bottle caps and lids to create a dynamic exhibit.
